90b to JA Thompson, pace on, full and straight. Thompson is pinned lbw and Spirit are out of reviews. Tailing in, thumped on the back pad right in front of the stumps. 122/7
70b to RS Bopara, hard length outside off, swung down towards long-on, where Sam Curran runs in, dives forward and takes a brilliant catch! Invincibles' outfielders have been excellent. 102/5
53b to DJ Mitchell, full and straight, stone dead! Mitchell reviews. Lunging forward to defend, no inside edge. Ball-tracking has it smashing into the top of middle, and Mitchell is already halfway off by the time the decision is confirmed. 86/4
73b to MJJ Critchley, smashed on the knee roll, Critchley goes lbw! This has been a brilliant spell from Narine. On a length, no real turn, Critchley is tentative as hits his pad with his pad as the ball thuds into his knee roll. 103/6
92b to MS Wade, width outside off, Wade skies one into the deep on the off side. Cox races in from long-off, running a good 20 yards in and around, and takes a phenomenal diving catch. 124/8
27b to DW Lawrence, bowled by the wrong 'un! Full and straight, spinning in. Lawrence looks to slog-sweep over the leg side but is castled, and Sowter roars in celebration. 46/1
29b to MS Pepper, reverses straight to point! Full outside off stump, nails the reverse... but straight at Atkinson. 50/2
48b to AM Rossington, fires through a 60mph googly, back of a length, which is swung away leg-side... Cox scampers in off the rope and takes an excellent catch, diving onto his front. Superb fielding. 81/3

TOTAL99 balls (RPB: 1.33)132/7
Fall of wickets: 1-12 (Jason Roy, 11b), 2-23 (Will Jacks, 18b), 3-24 (Heinrich Klaasen, 21b), 4-71 (Jordan Cox, 62b), 5-93 (Sam Curran, 74b), 6-111 (Tom Curran, 87b), 7-113 (Sam Billings, 91b) • DRS
11b to JJ Roy, outswinger, Roy steps out and swings for the hills... it comes down with snow on it, but Ellis settles under the catch at point. 12/1
21b to H Klaasen, edged to slip! Klaasen has been in fine form around the world but can only manage 1 on Hundred debut. Angling in, squares him up with the shape away, and his outside edge is straight to Critchley. Lawrence rewarded for aggressive captaincy. 24/3
18b to WG Jacks, half-volley spooned to mid-off! Simple catch for Lawrence as Jacks mistimes his drive. 23/2
91b to SW Billings, wide outside off stump, slower ball, Billings gets across to slog-sweep towards the short side... but it's straight down midwicket's throat! Good catch by Pepper diving forwards. Billings smashes his pad with his bat in frustration. 113/7
62b to JM Cox, back of a length, Cox jumps into position for the reverse-pull... and gloves it through to Rossington! Lawrence had just brought third man up into the ring so Cox looked to flick this away fine, but couldn't get a clean connection. Ellis breaks the partnership. 71/4
87b to TK Curran, cleaned him up! Middle stump is pegged back. Pace on, full and straight. Curran looks to punch it down the ground but is done for pace. 111/6
74b to SM Curran, smashed on the pad and triggered! Curran reviews, looking to swing across the line and target the short side. Pitches in line, smashed on the knee roll and hitting the top of leg stump. Curran goes after a useful hand. 93/5
