Tom Hartley20102421.201200
5b to SM Curran, bowled him! Quicker, flatter, pinned on the back foot, flaps the bat with no balance, and loses his off stump! A 200 strike-rate will suffice, I guess! Hartley is working his variations well. 7/1
23b to JJ Roy, this could be an outstanding catch! Roy rifles into a full-blooded pull, soft signal is out, and the third umpire needs just one look to confirm that that has carried to Lammonby, who flung himself forward to stop a speeding bullet! Looking into the sun too, at deep midwicket. Stunning. 32/3
Fred Klaassen1552331.534000
14b to SP Narine, full, inswinging, pinned on the pad, gone! Tailing into the toes, Narine is stuck on the crease as he wafts through the line. And Roy tells his team-mate the review would be futile... he's wrong you know! That was missing leg!. 16/2
87b to SW Billings, slower ball, Billings holes out to cover! Round the wicket, completely duped by the lack of pace, he was trying to hit the boosters but it came off the toe and looped gently to the edge of the ring, Joe Clarke backpedalling to take it safely. 127/7
89b to NA Sowter, played on, Klaassen gets another! The Invincibles are proving all too vincible here. Sowter the eighth wicket to fall, backing away and swinging hard but only managing an edge on to his pads and into the timber. 131/8
Steven Finn1562221.464010
71b to CA Ingram, shortish, slogged across the line, Brathwaite leaps for the top-edge at short third! Ingram just threw the bat at that, almost cleared the man on the edge of the ring, but Brathwaite is tall enough to drag it in. 105/5
73b to LJ Evans, drilled to mid-off! Finn has two in three balls! In the slot to drive but Evans couldn't stay over the ball, connected sweetly enough but it dipped nicely into Salt's hands as he plunged forward. 105/6
Carlos Brathwaite1522501.664000
Matt Parkinson2062711.350200
34b to WG Jacks, spanked straight to Finn at square leg! A hard, flat sweep, but there's no finesse in the stroke. Parkinson knows his field, and Finn makes no mistake! The Invincibles are looking vincible. But then, so too were the ladies.... 48/4

Fall of wickets: 1-4 (Phil Salt, 5b), 2-24 (Joe Clarke, 21b), 3-41 (Jos Buttler, 34b), 4-50 (Tom Lammonby, 41b), 5-69 (Colin Munro, 60b), 6-122 (Calvin Harrison, 92b), 7-127 (Carlos Brathwaite, 96b)
Sam Curran2072721.353001
5b to PD Salt, slower ball, full length, holed out to cover! Cunning from Curran, and gullible from Salt, but that's how he rolls. Imperceptible change in pace, on the same full inswinging length, Ingram called early as the ball soared up towards the floodlights. Important early wicket. 4/1
96b to CR Brathwaite, pitched up and smashed downtown... but it doesn't have the legs, pouched at long-on! You thought that was right in the slot for Brathwaite, but he hung his head in frustration as Roy ran around the boundary and held it safely at chest-height. 127/7
Saqib Mahmood53601.201000
Sunil Narine2082211.101020
34b to JC Buttler, done by the ripper out of the surface! Buttler has no idea about this one, a flummoxed leading edge pops out to short cover, he was aiming for a flick to the leg side, but the ball spat from off to leg, cramping his intentions, and he's got to go!. 41/3
Reece Topley1562511.665010
21b to JM Clarke, goes for the scoop, and tickles to the keeper! First-ball strike, and Clarke's sparky cameo is done! Seam-up, getting big on the funky shot, and there's another one down in the powerplay. 24/2
Will Jacks52801.600100
Nathan Sowter1541821.201020
41b to TA Lammonby, dances out and slaps a full toss to cover! Sowter strikes with his first ball in the Hundred, and Originals sink further! Lammonby undid himself, really, trying to get out and toe-ending it low to cover, where Ingram scooped it securely. 50/4
60b to C Munro, slogged to long-off! Sowts about that! Done in the flight, Munro leaning back as he attempted to blast this down the ground, sent a steepling catch to the man a few yards in from the rope. 69/5
Tom Curran2062511.251100
92b to CG Harrison, full toss, taken at mid-off! Harrison's hard-scrabble knock comes to an end in the dying embers... TeeCee missed his yorker by a distance but it was miscued to the edge of the ring, SCurran taking a good low catch. 122/6
