9.25pm: Phoenix utterly rumbled on their own patch, bowled out for the lowest total in the men's Hundred (the previous mark of 87 was also Phoenix against Originals, at Old Trafford last year). A thumping win for Manchester Originals and they are up to third in the table, and have their destiny in their own hands with one game left in the group stage. In fact, we will have two virtual quarter-finals next week, with Originals hosting Oval Invincibles and Phoenix travelling to London to take on Spirit - only two of those four can progress (assuming Trent Rockets don't slip up against winless Welsh Fire tomorrow). Anyway, that's a wrap for tonight - Matt's report will be up shortly, and we'll be back for more as the competition enters the final straight. Bye!

Tom Hartley is the Match Hero after his 4 for 22: "It was a nice wicket to bowl on, hybrid and used, just tried to use the pitch as much as I could. [Ecclestone success in women's game] Sophie's a good indication because she bowls quite fast. If she's going to get it to turn, I'll hope to do the same. We thought we put a good score on the board, use our cutters and spin options and be smart with the small side. [Running into form at right time] We saw Southern Brave do it last year, we lost the first three but have picked up good rhythm and the boys are really getting along, so there's no reason we can't."

Originals captain Laurie Evans: "Huge win. They've been must-win all the way through, since we lost three out of three. The boys made me look good with all my changes. We thought we were under par but turned out to be a competitive score. [Hartley] He bowls the hard overs for Lancashire, and it was so good to see him pick up the rewards. [Salt dismissal] He wasn't happy, we weren't happy! We just had to calm him down. He played fantastically well, once again showed how good he is. [Captaincy] Loving it, haven't done a lot. Come at a time when I feel I've played enough cricket. Jos and Kat left me in a great position with the squad and great to get a performance tonight. [Lammonby] He's a fantastic fielder and so good to see him finish off the innings, a gem of a knock because we were a little bit under par. [Deciding group game against Oval] Looking forward to that game, and winner takes all."

Little to Kane Richardson, OUT

slugged high into the leg side - taken! All over, Red Rover. Richardson holes out to deep midwicket, and Originals win by a crushing margin to keep their knockout hopes alive

Kane Richardson is the last man. Phoenix still a few runs away from surpassing their own record for the lowest total in the men's Hundred

Howell drags on, and this is almost done! Back of a length outside off, 87mph and the ball cannons off a phat under-edge into the timbers

Parkinson to Helm, 1 run, OUT

tucked into the leg side, Helm wants two... but has he been done by the throw from deep midwicket? Yes, confirms the third umpire! Brilliant from Lammonby, firing it in right next to the stumps and Salt does the rest with Helm an inch or two short

Tom Helm run out (Lammonby/†Salt) 8 (9b 0x4 1x6) SR: 88.88

honked down the ground, gets it all the way over long-off! Full outside off and he clears the front leg, batters six

length delivery, swatted towards mid-on going back... another dot, and Walter has crazy figures of 10 balls, nine dots, one run, one wicket!

Walter to Helm, no run

full outside off, Helm pokes and is beaten, Salt is adamant there was an edge - and reviews the not-out decision. Alex Wharf was the umpire, which possibly was enough to provoke Salt... but UltraEdge says nothing on it! Wharf 2-0 Salt

Hartley to Dwarshuis, OUT

knocks 'im over! Quick and straight, Dwarshuis is rocking back to swing leg side, but gets completely cleaned up. Middle stump flattened, the stumps a mess... rather like this Phoenix innings
