Manchester Originals (Men)131/10(99 balls)

9.41 pm In a Hundred version of the Roses rivalry, the White Rose Superchargers jolt the Originals. And how! The first ever 200 score of The Hundred by the hosts and the visitors finish 69 runs behind. They were never in the chase at any stage. Superchargers move up to fourth after the win.

Match Hero is John Simpson: "It's definitely been a special one, the last six to seven weeks for sure. We knew it was going to be a massive match in front of a packed house at Headingley and hopefully it'll stand us in good stead for Tuesday. It was one of those things to get used to the wicket, take four or five balls, and then it came off. It's been great [keeping to Adil Rashid]. Playing with him has been fantastic and Mujeeb is world class. They've got fantastic variations. Every once in a while they'll bamboozle me, but they keep the pressure on."

That's it from us tonight. Come back tomorrow for more Hundred doubleheader action. Take care!

82
W
Willey to Harrison, OUT

another length ball, another skied pull, but this time the top edge swirls to Rashid on the ring at short third man. Simple catch at waist height waiting for the ball to be pulled back to earth by the exceptionally strong, should I say Supercharged, Leeds gravitational force.

Calvin Harrison c Rashid b Willey 13 (21m 12b 2x4 0x6) SR: 108.33
81
1
Willey to Ferguson, 1 run

length ball on the stumps, skies a pull that swirls into no man's land between deep fine leg charging in and the keeper Simpson running out. They're not gonna chance a dive and a possible collision at this stage of the game.

Willey back into the attack.
