Fall of wickets: 1-10 (Luis Reece, 5b), 2-56 (Josh Inglis, 36b), 3-81 (Adam Rossington, 56b), 4-84 (Joe Cracknell, 60b), 5-114 (Ravi Bopara, 82b), 6-122 (Mohammad Nabi, 87b)
5b to LM Reece, bowled him! All he needed was a left-hander in his sights! Over the wicket, darted through the gate on a fuller length! Reece's feet go nowhere. All's well that ends well after a loose opening gambit. 10/1
56b to AM Rossington, stunner from Parkinson at short third man! Attempted reverse sweep from Rossington, but he cloths his loft towards the rope. Parky backpedals and flings himself skywards, clinging on in one hand, and he's off! Imran Tahir eat your heart out! What is it about leggies!. 81/3
60b to JB Cracknell, ripper dipper! Perfect length from Hartley, a fraction fuller with Cracknell back on his crease, quicker through the air and gripping on an off-stump line, straightens into off stump to exacerbate Spirit's wobble. 84/4
87b to Mohammad Nabi, twang! I suspect Nabi had set himself for the slowie ... this was anything but ... 93mph, plucking out the top of middle as the batter sends his eyes skywards!. 122/6
36b to JP Inglis, attempted sweep, big top-edge, straight to short fine leg! Brathwaite rewarded for his faith in the leggie, too impetuous from Inglis, and Originals have their second breakthrough. 56/2
82b to RS Bopara, hacked to long-off! Bopara rocked back for a slap down the ground, but his weight was falling the wrong way as his blade came through. Harrison steadies himself at long-off and prises the opening!. 114/5

Did not bat:
Fall of wickets: 1-13 (Joe Clarke, 6b), 2-20 (Colin Munro, 13b), 3-21 (Phil Salt, 16b), 4-87 (Tom Lammonby, 62b), 5-126 (Colin Ackermann, 89b), 6-134 (Carlos Brathwaite, 95b), 7-135 (Calvin Harrison, 97b), 8-136 (Tom Hartley, 99b), 9-136 (Fred Klaassen, 100b)
6b to JM Clarke, smoked down the ground towards long-on... brilliantly taken by Crane! Half-tracker from Nabi first up, Clarke looked to dispatch it over the ropes but didn't quite get enough on it, and Crane leapt to grab it above his head right in front of the boundary!. 13/1
13b to C Munro, drilled to cover, Bopara holds a stinger! Tossed up and inviting the drive, Munro connects well with the shot but R-Bop was lurking well inside the ring and just stuck up two hands to grab it, casual as you like, then drops the ball towards the umpire as his team-mates congregate around him. 20/2
16b to PD Salt, strikes first ball in the comp! Top of off, you miss I hit... Salt has a hack across the line and the bails go ping! Right on the money from the word go, 83mph on a length and it sneaks through. That's the Wheal deal, baby. 21/3
89b to CN Ackermann, skies this one and it drops safely into the hands of deep midwicket! Ackermann was looking to break the back of the requirement with another maximum, but Wheal took some pace off and he got under the shot. Went very high but didn't have the length. 126/5
97b to CG Harrison, timbaaaaaah! Wheal flattens off stump! Spirit are closing in... Excellent from Wheal, just goes full and straight and Harrison completely misses with a heave across the line. 135/7
100b to FJ Klaassen, treads on his stumps! Wheal closes out with a fourth, Klaassen paddling away to the leg side but breaking his own wicket in the process. London Spirit win by six runs, their first success in the Hundred!. 136/9
62b to TA Lammonby, top-edged on the sweep... and Wheal clings on running in! Lammonby had looked good, but he becomes Crane's first victim with a swing into the leg side. Wheal had to make up plenty of ground from deep square but grabbed it low to the ground. 87/4
95b to CR Brathwaite, wide yorker and Brathwaite picks out deep cover! Deep in the crease but it wasn't in the arc, skewed off the outer half of the bat! Cullen holds his nerve, as does Cracknell coming in off the rope. Is that the game for Spirit?. 134/6
