swung out to deep midwicket, Stubbs takes an excellent catch! He had to keep swinging, and looked for the gap between midwicket and long-on, but Stubbs ran round to his left and sealed the deal with a good, diving effort
That's everything from us tonight. Thanks for tuning in, and we'll be back tomorrow for the first England vs South Africa Test, and then Trent Rockets vs Oval Invincibles in the evening. See you then!
Jos Buttler is speaking to Sky: "Great for us to get a win. Still areas to work on but delighted to get a win. Delighted for Sean. He'd admit he hasn't bowled his best so far so it was great for him to lead from the front today. It's important to try and keep confidence in this form of the game. Tonight we nailed our basics with the ball. We're blessed to have quite a lot of different options and there's a few guys in that team who know conditions well here. [Partnership with Salt] Powerplay runs are vital at this ground, we see it in the Blast with Lancashire all the time. It would have been nice to have carried that on and get to 180, but that was great to be a part of. Quick turnaround so great to take that confidence into the next game."
Sean Abbott is the Match Hero: "It's obviously not the start we wanted but we came out and executed today. Mitch Stanley really set the tone. We would have liked more runs on the board but we knew tonight that the pitch was going to take a bit of spin and some pace-off, so we knew it would be tough to bat. The conversations we've had in the changing rooms have been great but personally I've not gone out and set the tone as I should be doing. Pretty good performance from everyone tonight." Abbott only has one game left before leaving for Australia's series against Zimbabwe, against Southern Brave on Thursday night.
9.09pm: That is a thrashing. Fire dragged it back well with the ball after Originals got off to a bright start but in the end it hardly mattered. Their batters failed to get going yet again, and Manchester cruised to a 47-run win, their first victory of the season. That effectively knocks Fire out, and just about keeps Manchester's hopes alive.

That is a horrendous way to go. Good awareness from Salt, but there's not a lot of dignity in that dismissal.
slower ball, jammed in short. Payne shuffles across to scoop but can't get bat on it. Oh my goodness, has he BBQed himself here? He has!! A lazy wander out of his crease, Salt threw at the stumps underarm, and Payne was caught just short! Sums up Fire's night - and their season
yorker, punched down the ground towards long-on. Buttler scrambles across from mid-off to keep them to a single

The groundstaff are lurking... the rain really would put the last embers of Fire out

where's that come from?! Slot ball from Abbott, and Payne monsters him straight back over his head! Sits deep in his crease, clears the front leg and whacks his first ball for six!
slower ball, back of a length. Skied up towards short third... Walter takes a blinder over his shoulder running back! Top-edge, looking to slash over the off side, and Tall Paul does very well
yorker, dug out through deep third via the outside edge. Abbott finally concedes his first runs
