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!
9.15pm: At the sixth time of asking, London Spirit have chalked up a W. Brad Wheal headlined the defence with 4 for 17, as Colin Ackermann's half-century went in vain - and defeat for Manchester Originals puts a dent in their knockout qualification hopes, too
Brad Wheal is Hero of the Match: "Amazing, we had a great atmosphere here, good to get over the line been a tough tournament so far. [Crowd] It was good fun. That's what we live for, the environment we love bowling in. Cutters were gripping, the odd one skidding on. Spinners did well, Mase bowled well, so a good game for us all round. [Warne as coach] Amazing, little bits of knowledge he drops in are just incredible, you just pinch yourself sometimes."
Right, well that was a close-run thing, but a second win of the day for the visitors from London. Originals' spin wasn't quite the success we thought it would be at EOT... Anyway, we're done for another night in the Hundred. Back for more tomorrow. Cheerio!
Fred Klaassen is out to the middle, 7 still needed, 6 for a tie. Wheal just has to bowl a legitimate ball here

Great comeback from Wheal after being put into the stands... Last ten, 17 needed. Brathwaite needs find his Kolkata vibe

Still some work to do for Originals. Calvin Harrison out for a bat
