flayed over point for the winning boundary! Tossed up and Dottin steps down imposingly, thrashes it up and over to the rope... That means London Spirit win by seven wickets, and break a run of three defeats
5.35pm: Relief for Knight and co, they've got themselves back in touch with a second win of the tournament. Dottin hadn't fired with the bat until now, but that was a classy, calculated knock to seal a low chase. First defeat for Northern Superchargers, but they scrapped hard throughout and are still well placed, with seven points from five. Spirit join a cluster of teams below them on four points.
Deandra Dottin is the Hero of the Match: "It's good to get it home for the team, been a bit of a struggle but I had to dig in and find a way. We play with a never-say-die determination, so I didn't think there was much pressure. Just stick to the basics. [Target?] We pulled it back a bit, they were a couple of runs short. [Feeling pressure?] I was a bit nervous, had to find a way to adapt, I'm in the groove now so you'll see a lot more."
Right, no rest for the wicket, the men are already getting ready. Toss in around 30 mins. Bye!
brutally swiped through cover, that could be it! All bottom hand as she leans back and clubs it past the infield for a boundary that elicits a gentle cheer from the home crowd!
round the wicket, lobbed up and Gibson reverse-sweeps, tight single to short third but they scamper through
Smith has finished, over to 18-year-old Kalea Moore
You'd fancy the chasing team, right? But they'll probably need to find the rope
lobbed up and jabbed into the covers, they take the single... so Gibson has the strike back with 7 needed from 5
Dottin clears mid-off for a vital boundary! Just saunters out and lofts her drive, well above the leaping Kimmince! One-legged flamingo flourish from Dottin as she watches it go... Is that the decisive blow?
gives this plenty of loop, 47mph on middle and leg, Gibson punches to long-on
tossed up and slashed towards short third, Graham is wrong-footed by the spin and they get a second!
flighted, skidding on outside off, cut into the covers but she won't get one
This is so tight, it really could go either way. Smith back to finish her allocation. Can she bowl a tight penultimate five?
continues with the dobblies, Gibson muscles a flat pull out to deep midwicket for one
pace off, 52mph outside off, not quite so much room to free the arms and she slaps to cover
pings her first ball to the rope! Slower delivery in the channel and Gibson waits for it, carves the hands through and four to deep point
Danielle Gibson heads out at No. 5. She can give it a biff
goes for the big hit but picks out deep square leg! Slower ball, Beaumont jumped across her stumps and attempted to fetch this into the Mound Stand... but sent it straight down the throat of Rodrigues! Big wicket for Superchargers, and the pressure cranks up on Dottin
slower ball, swatted away through the leg side
Cool stuff from Beaumont and Dottin, but 21 still needed from 15. ADR again, she helped close out a tight one at Headingley at the weekend
Here's DaWolf again: "You're absolutely right, I'd have bowled Smith straight after the break and hoped for that 3rd wicket. I'm an absolute believer in the kiwi captains method, taking wickets is the best way to slow a run chase. Use the best bowlers on the day against their best batters. Instead now the run rate has come way down. It'll be tough to defend now."
fired flatter and Dottin punches it back to Smith. First dot in 19 balls
looped up full, Beaumont skips out and dinks another single through mid-off
drags this down, 50mph wide of off stump, swiped for one to long-off
floated up and drilled back, Smith gets a touch on it in her follow through
lobbed up on off stump, Dottin leans back and pumps one to long-on
Here is Linsey Smith, 2 for 3 from 10 balls so far
Still just above a run a ball needed. But Superchargers have 10 balls from Smith to bowl
flighted, drifting leg side, Beaumont sweeps for a couple towards fine leg
flighted, 49mph on the stumps, nudged to leg and they scamper through as the throw comes in - 100 up for London Spirit
