Fall of wickets: 1-79 (Jason Roy, 46b), 2-126 (Will Jacks, 73b), 3-187 (Sam Curran, 98b), 4-187 (Ross Whiteley, 99b) • DRS
98b to SM Curran, Caught on the fence! Curran heaves across to clear the shorter side at deep midwicket but fails to connect well enough and is caught right on the edge of the sponge. 187/3
99b to RA Whiteley, Gone first ball! Short ball has Whiteley uneasy as he tries to pull but only top edges tamely into the gloves of Rossington. 187/4
46b to JJ Roy, Gone! Opening partnership broke with Mitchell's first delivery! It was wide and there to be hit, but Roy scuffs an edge that loops through to Rossington. 79/1
73b to WG Jacks, A solid innings comes to an end... Tries to hit Mitchell into the pavilion, but the length - just short - means Jacks has to put everything behind it. Comes up short, caught just short of the fence at long on. 126/2

TOTAL100 balls (RPB: 1.87)187/7
Fall of wickets: 1-94 (Zak Crawley, 50b), 2-95 (Michael Pepper, 53b), 3-96 (Adam Rossington, 55b), 4-142 (Matthew Wade, 77b), 5-147 (Daryl Mitchell, 82b), 6-148 (Dan Lawrence, 84b), 7-169 (Liam Dawson, 94b) • DRS
94b to LA Dawson, another slower ball, picks out deep square leg! Dawson has to go for broke but swings the ball straight to Sowter, who pouches it safely. 169/7
50b to Z Crawley, pace off again, and the stumps are disturbed! Crawley's scratchy knock comes to a close as he deflects the ball into his wicket. Done by the slower ball, he swung hard across the line and missed completely, a flick of the back leg then taking it into middle stump. 94/1
77b to MS Wade, floated up wide of the stumps, Wade chases after the big hit, plinks to extra cover! Googly from Sowter and he could barely reach it in the end, slicing a top edge that didn't get beyond the ring. Comfortable catch, Sowter roars in celebration. Invincibles edge back in front. 142/4
82b to DJ Mitchell, steps across his stumps, Zampa rolls it out quick and straight, pins him in front! Just grips and turns past the bat as Mitchell mows across the line. Hit on the back leg and Kettleborough's finger goes straight up. Mitchell walks off without a thought of reviewing. 147/5
84b to DW Lawrence, smashed down the ground, picks out long-on! Rocks back and almost connects too well with a cross-batted shot, it flew flat and hard, Roy winces after clinging on to his left. Lawrence covers his face but has to depart. 148/6
53b to MS Pepper, bowled off his pads, Invincibles burgle another! Pepper's second outing of the season is also a short one. He rolls his head back in frustration, stepping away outside leg stump but missing with a swipe, the ball ricocheting into the wicket. 95/2
55b to AM Rossington, speared on off, Rossington misses with a reverse-heave - given! Was the impact in line? Russell Warren thinks so, but Rossington reviews. No bat involved, and it's umpire's call, crashing into middle and leg! Jacks has got two in three balls and Spirit's fast start is quickly veering off course. 96/3
