huge and straight! In the slot, and nailed back over the bowler's head! A rampant finish from the recent England keeper, into the second deck! What a way to wrap it up!
8.36pm So, Superchargers have their first win, to climb off the bottom of the table, and it's fair to say Headingley enjoyed that finish. A slow-burn contest, never really ignited to be honest, but it got dicey in the closing stages. From Miller, Venkat and the team, good night, and let's do this all again tomorrow, with another double-double!
Sampath has the stat to see us out: "Harry Brook's last 7 T20 innings at Leeds - 424 runs, 1 dismissal, 175.93 strike rate, 7 40+ scores, 3 PoTM awards"
Adil Rashid, with 3 for 13, set up the victory, and Harry Brook, their batter of the tournament so far, was there at the death with a brilliant 47 from 30 for the Hero award.
"Rashid bowled exceptionally well, and he deserved it," says Brook. "Not many runs on the board, so ticking it over with Lynny, taking the dangerman out of it. Nice to win in front of a home crowd. I want to be a matchwinner, I've played my game all year and it's nice to win games."
RobP: "How can someone as slight as Simpson whack the ball as far as that?" Did you never watch Mighty Mouse?
wide lines, sliced through third man! Slower ball, Simpson held his stroke, and found enough fat of the bat to get right back into this chase!
Craig: "Worst fielding of the competition from the Invincibles. Utter filth." Some thunderous faces on the bench, that's for sure
wide down the leg side... whoops
Curran to finish
right up to the toes, brilliant running to create the second! That was pressed down the ground, a long chase in from the rope for long-on, and the reticence in the field is enough to persuade Simpson to chance the arm!
well bowled, followed the shimmy to the off-side, aimed into the tramlines on a full length, Simpson snicks an attempted deflection on the bounce to the keeper
thrashed across the line, outside leg, flicks the pad, deflects through short third for the single
ramped over the keeper, and another terrible fumble from Narine! The ball bobbles out of his grasp, and that's a precious extra run
flogged off a toe-end, and short of Narine at short third man! He really didn't look keen to go for that...
Topley for his final five, or maybe ten?
there's the boundary! Curran with the full toss, Brook doesn't miss out! Crushed through the covers! He wanted the yorker, but he missed it by a yard!
A boundary would change things for Superchargers...
retreats to leg to free the arms, a 73mph length ball, under-edged past leg stump, the keeper scampers to gather
fuller length, outside off, slammed hard but straight to deep cover for the single
hacked up and over mid-off! A sprint back towards the rope, but it plugs behind the man... dicey!
back of a length, and dropped at mid-off! That's an appalling miss! Straight into the midriff, and straight through Mahmood's hands! Curran lured the error, but Oval's fielding has been ragged!
Tom Curran, he knows how to finish it.
frees the arms for a slap over the covers! Curran dives, half-stops, chases the fumble... runs are coming but the balls are running out too...
Swings into the pull, into the gap at deep midwicket! Mahmood left that area open, to tempt the stroke, and he got the mishit... but it was safe... up comes the 100
right behind the line as Mahmood bashes out a hard length, tight to off stump. Simpson the left-hander pats it back to the bowler
solid connection, but straight at square leg! Oh my... this is starting to unravel now! Pumped with an unfurling of the arms as Vilas climbs into his first ball, but Curran on the rope gobbles the chance, shushes the Western Stand, and now there's a finish!
back of a length, pulled high on the back, dribbles out to deep midwicket
Invincibles were 78 for 6 at this stage... but Roy and Curran had the big finish to come
clears the leg, flogged flat, straight to wide long-off! The end of a grinding knock from Lynn, but it should have done enough to set up this chase. Narine is done too, which doesn't help Invincibles' cause
back-foot once more, tight wicket-to-wicket line, can't make the angle
