Fall of wickets: 1-16 (Jason Roy, 15b), 2-22 (Rilee Rossouw, 20b), 3-51 (Sam Billings, 41b), 4-107 (Sam Curran, 85b), 5-154 (Will Jacks, 99b)
20b to RR Rossouw, slashed to short third! 87mph from Payne, inducing a thick outside edge. Slighlty full of a length outside off stump, Rossouw looked to flash through point but was done by the pace, and the Payne-Scrimshaw combination have done it again!. 22/2
15b to JJ Roy, picks out short fine leg! Roy's miserable summer continues and he throws the bat in the air in frustration. Length ball, sliding into the pads, and there was only one man for Roy to beat. But he whipped it straight to Payne on the 45!. 16/1
41b to SW Billings, very full, and pinned on the pad trying to sweep! Billings won't bother reviewing. Offcutter, yorker length, sliding into the pads. Crashing into the base of middle. 51/3
99b to WG Jacks, taken on the edge of the deep midwicket boundary! Jacks can't clear the big boundary, but he has turned it around as well as you would like. It was a slower delivery on middle, as he made room to tonk that. It was timed well too, but just that the big boundary didn't take it all the way. 154/5
85b to SM Curran, again down the pitch, but now finds long-off! This was on a good length on off, as he flung that after making some room, but got that off the higher side of the bat. Miller at long-off went low to complete the easy catch. 107/4

TOTAL100 balls (RPB: 1.19)119/6
Fall of wickets: 1-46 (Tom Banton, 35b), 2-72 (Joe Clarke, 57b), 3-73 (Ollie Pope, 62b), 4-77 (David Miller, 70b), 5-96 (Josh Cobb, 80b), 6-100 (Ben Duckett, 84b)
84b to BM Duckett, bowled him! The change of pace working again on this pitch. He went pulling to this good length ball angling into leg, but was beaten by the lack of pace. Through his shot early, and gone. 100/6
57b to JM Clarke, finds deep midwicket on the longer boundary! One brother catches, and the other one bowls. Slower delivery on a short of a length outside off, as Clarke swings for the pull after riding the bounce. Tom Curran knows he might have got away with that since the boundary there was pretty long, and so he has a wry smile on his face. 72/2
70b to DA Miller, holes out to deep midwicket! The longer boundary coming into play yet again, as Fire's hopes are doused. Miller went heaving to this length ball - right in the zone for a free swing - which was bowled on middle and leg. He timed that well, and even hit with some force. But it didn't go as far as he would have liked, and Invincibles inch closer to a win. 77/4
35b to T Banton, on a length, spinning in and keeping a touch low to smash Banton on the pads, bang in front. Banton won't bother with the review. Stone dead!. 46/1
62b to OJ Pope, wow, Pope was being adventurous first ball! Not sure if that was half a conventional sweep, or an attempted reverse. He walks down the pitch at first to shape to sweep, but then is half-ready for his reverse. In the end, the full ball on middle and off hits off stump after Pope misses the ball turning away. 73/3
80b to JJ Cobb, gone, the off stump is crashed! Narine hits back immediately. This was bowled slower than the previous ball, and he just pulled his length back a bit to go around off stump again. Cobb went for the slog sweep again, and missed. The stumps rattled, and an emotionless Narine finished with 3 for 21. 96/5
