The ECB's brainchild, the Hundred is a necessary tool to increase cricket's reach and appeal, according to Graves.
The ICC Board of Directors meeting on Monday ended up being a damp squib after they failed to reach consensus over Shashank Manohar's replacement as the next chairman of cricket's global governing body.
Usually in ICC, a two-third majority is required but there could be a few board members who would want it to be a case of simple majority among 17 members.

Manohar stepped down early this month after over four years at the helm, letting go of a third term after it became clear that he would not find enough backers for it in the ICC.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) will be hoping to end the impasse surrounding the future of this year's T20 World Cup in Australia and sort the nomination process for its next chairman when the board members meet virtually on Wednesday.
The ICC is set to discuss the process to elect its new chief at its board meeting on Thursday with media reports saying that the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) chief Colin Graves is favourite to fill the post.
Colin Graves to step down as ECB chairman on 31 August following postponement of The Hundred due to COVID-19 crisis
Graves, who was appointed as chairman in May 2015, will be replaced by Ian Watmore after being ratified in the AGM at the end of the month. Graves is expected to take over as ICC's next chairman, replacing Shashank Manohar.
The 61-year-old Watmore, who resigned from his position with English soccer’s governing body in 2010, will begin his new role with the country’s cricket board on 1 December.
Cook – who has more Test centuries (33) and runs (12,472) than any other England player accrued during a record 161 Test matches – is the first cricketer to be knighted since legendary all-rounder Ian Botham in 2007.

ECB's proposal for new 100-ball competition is to attract younger audience to cricket, says chairman Colin Graves
The English and Wales Cricket Board’s (ECB) proposal for a new 100-ball competition was created to attract younger people to the sport, according to the organisation’s chairman Colin Graves.
Given the new equation that has emerged, there has suddenly emerged an alignment in favour of Manohar, with even the BCCI throwing its weight behind him.
It surely makes much sense to head in a direction that will garner more results over a shorter span of time, with four-day Test cricket being an ideal solution.
ECB insists it has 'no firm position' on four-day Tests, says it's 'sensitive to potential effects' of format changes
It had been reported that English cricket chiefs were in favour of reducing Tests from their current five days to four to fit in with modern trends such as Twenty20 which have made shorter-form cricket ever more popular.
West Indies skipper Jason Holder believes his pacemen can benefit from the "huge underdogs" and will look to my life uncomfortable for England. "It's just for our batsmen to make some runs," he said.

Shortly after Pietersen made an unbeaten triple century for Surrey against Leicestershire on Monday, Strauss told him to forget about playing for England.
Pietersen, 34, has not played for England since the ECB effectively called time on his international career following the disastrous Ashes tour of 2013-14.
