9.15pm: A cool hand in the chase there, Dawid Malan ending up on 88 from 49 - the second-highest individual score in the men's Hundred, and knocking Will Jacks off the top for this season. Rockets probably would have been happy chasing 153 from the start, perhaps less so after Superchargers were 68 for 6, but they got there without too much fuss in the end. Rockets join London Spirit with two wins from two, while Superchargers have tasted their first defeat; they'll be back in action again on Thursday. Tomorrow it is Birmingham Phoenix at home to Southern Brave in a rematch of last year's final - make sure to join us for that. Cheerio!

Dawid Malan is Hero of the Match: "Good to get a win. Halesy and I dovetailed really well, took on our match-ups and found the boundaries. When you're batting in a partnership like that it makes chasing pretty easy. We were a bit filthy with ourselves that we let them get to that total, probably 10-15 runs too many, especially with the wickets we took early, but ultimately it was a below par score and allowed us to chase."

Raine to Malan, FOUR runs

reverse-paddled to third, another four to finish it! Superbly played by the Rockets' Malan, sees his side home by seven wickets for their second win in a row

Raine to Gregory, 1 run

back of a length from over the wicket, swatted away through point

Raine to Malan, 1 run

full on off and dug out towards mid-off

"How do you explain cricket to someone who is starting to watch it through The Hundred?" Well, Len Mushangwe, you could do worse than reading this

Raine to Malan, FOUR runs

pitched up on the stumps, Malan opens up his shoulders, pings four through cover! He actually stepped way outside leg to make that shot possible

Raine for his last set

Dwayne Bravo to Munro, OUT

full and wide, Munro stretches for it... there's an appeal for caught behind, and then a review of David Millns' not-out decision. There's clearly a sound as the bat thuds into the turf, but TV umpire O'Shaughnessy decides that there is also evidence of an edge! So Munro will have to drag himself off

pitched up from round the wicket, 81mph and punched to long-on

Dwayne Bravo to Malan, FOUR runs

hoicked up and over short third!! Frustration for Bravo as the ball clears Wiese and spins away for four more

Bravo to bowl a tenner... RPB down to 1 for Rockets

85

Dwayne Bravo to Munro, 1 run

pitched up outside off, pace on at 80mph and Munro slaps it in the air but short of long-off

84
1
Dwayne Bravo to Malan, 1 run

full and tickled back down the ground to long-on

"These short square boundaries look smaller than those NZ grounds," chunters Kapil Baldawa. "Ridiculous to bring in the boundaries so much. Malan is swiping them over square leg. Any decent sized ground and he would have been out thrice"

83

Dwayne Bravo to Malan, FOUR runs

squirted to third off the outside edge! Flashes a drive and gets enough on it to divert the ball wide of the diving Simpson

83
1w
Dwayne Bravo to Malan, 1 wide

looks to go even wider as Malan steps outside off stump... but this almost misses the cut strip

82
1
Dwayne Bravo to Munro, 1 run

pitched up and dabbed behind square on the off side

81
Dwayne Bravo to Munro, no run

Bravo goes full and wide, right out towards the tramlines. Dot ball as Munro swings and misses

Has that set cracked it? Rockets need 23 from 20, and it should be very doable from here

pitched up and driven along the carpet, ironic cheers as Wiese fields this safely at long-on

Potts to Munro, 2 runs

Wiese drops a goober at long-on! Munro slogged high into the leg side, never looked like it had the legs, and Wiese was there to set himself... but the ball popped straight out of his paws!

Potts to Munro, FOUR runs

slower ball wide of off, Munro flashes it through the covers! Good bat speed, there was a man out there but van der Merwe failed to pick it up

Potts to Malan, 1 run

back of a length outside off, carved to deep backward point

Potts to Malan, SIX runs

clobbered over deep square! Casual as you like from Malan, sitting back and hoicking a short ball well over the man out on the rope

Potts again
