Fall of wickets: 1-5 (Georgia Adams, 4b), 2-15 (Dane van Niekerk, 17b), 3-36 (Fran Wilson, 37b), 4-90 (Marizanne Kapp, 81b), 5-100 (Alice Capsey, 91b), 6-100 (Mady Villiers, 92b), 7-106 (Joanne Gardner, 97b)
4b to GL Adams, bumper wide of off stump, Adams has a dabble at it, Wong appeals... no movement from the umpire, Anna Harris, Amy Jones doesn't look sure, either, but eventually reviews. And UltraEdge picks up a spike! Wong and her Phoenix team-mates are ecstatic. Top review, and Invincibles are one down early. 5/1
17b to D van Niekerk, skips out and wallops it... straight to mid-on! Phoenix get van Niekerk early in the end, as she clubs Arlott straight to the edge of the ring! Tied down by some tight lines, and she couldn't break free. Phoenix have made another big breakthrough in the Powerplay. 15/2
37b to FC Wilson, Gordon snags one off her own bowling! Makes room and slaps it back at the bowler, who stays low and pouches it, before throwing the ball up in delight! Wilson was looking in decent touch, but falls just one run shy of her highest score in the Hundred. 36/3
92b to MK Villiers, slogged high to deep midwicket! Tossed up by Gordon and Villiers looks for the big hit, only to pick out the reliable Mack in the deep. Invincibles finishing with a whimper here. 100/6
81b to M Kapp, tossed up and plopped to mid-on! Tried to come down but the shot was completely underdone, Arlott had plenty of time to scurry in from the deep and take a safe catch a few yards outside the circle. Vital inning for Invincibles but she's gone at a bad time. 90/4

3b to KM Mack, strikes with a full outswinger! Mack was struggling with the movement from ball one and again Kapp with an attacking length to suck Mack into a drive but it's on sixth stump groping well away from her body and gets a thin edge through.. 0/1
13b to E Jones, Kapp giving the Invincibles hope here! fullish length on fifth stump angled across Eve Jones from over the stumps, she pushes away from her body on the angle and another thin edge is well held behind.. 14/2
50b to EA Burns, Tash Farrant with a late nomination entry for catch of the tournament! Full on off from Kapp, Burns drives this inside out trying to go over extra cover but gets it a bit too straight. Farrant runs to her left on the ring at mid-off and flings herself full extension to her left to pull off a stunning grab. 10/10 on the judge's scorecards from Romania, Brazil, Cuba and Oman!. 66/3
75b to IECM Wong, what kind of shot was that?! Wong increases the pressure on Phoenix with a rash attempt at a scoop over fine leg, goes too far across her stumps and leaves them exposed while missing the audacious shot attempt as Ismail rips out leg stump halfway up.. 84/6
51b to AE Jones, Double-strike! Full and wide outside off to encourage a drive, laces it flat straight to extra cover on the ring! Simple catch at waist height.. 66/4
78b to GM Davies, slower ball on off at 49 mph, Davies tries to heave over the leg side but is thrown off by the change of pace, skies this over Bryce behind the stumps shuffling to her left towards fine leg and pouches a simple chance. She fluffed one earlier but with the pressure building, the Scottish international holds her nerve to claim this one.. 85/7
92b to EL Arlott, full on off, slogs this high toward Ismail at long-on, she charges in and settles for the chance taking it crouching on her right knee 10 yards inside the rope.. 93/9
94b to KL Gordon, how fitting for Kapp to take the final catch to seal Invincibles place in the final! Short and wide, slaps a fierce cut but at catching height to Kapp at cover on the ring, who takes this at rib height. Invincibles have produced a memorably stirring fightback to seal their place in the final at Lord's!. 94/10
68b to M Kelly, sharp return catch by the captain! Tosses it up on middle to invite another charge, firm straight bat strike back down the pitch but can't keep it down and it leaves the door ajar for van Niekerk to reach across her body moving right and take a fabulous catch at rib height.. 81/5
85b to GA Elwiss, Capsey one-ups Farrant and van Niekerk with a sensational return catch! Flighted full on off, Elwiss charges for a firmly struck lofted straight drive, but Capsey climbs a ladder to pluck this high over her head with a stupendous leaping effort to intercept it high above her head. Invincibles are living up to their name with some of the catching this innings.. 87/8
