Freya Davies2082711.353020
2b to GL Adams, bowled 'er! Slower ball, full, outside off stump, and Adams throws her bat at it, looking to drive through the covers without getting her feet moving. All she manages is to drag it back onto the stumps off the inside edge. Looks like the ball hit the inside edge on the full. 0/1
Naomi Dattani1592321.533110
87b to A Capsey, that drop won't cost the Spirit. Angles this length ball in towards the stumps, and Capsey clears her front leg to swipe over the leg side. Hits it very well, but picks out the fielder at deep square leg. The end of a terrific innings. She's really announced herself here. 109/4
90b to MK Villiers, gone. Full now, angling into leg stump to deny Villiers swinging room. Tries to create some by clearing her front leg, and whips it high in the air, straight down the throat of deep midwicket. 117/5
Deandra Dottin2092711.354011
94b to D van Niekerk, length ball, angling into leg stump. van Niekerk looks to step across and sweep, and she can't get enough power to clear the fielder at deep backward square leg. The Spirit are pulling things back here after that big Capsey-van Niekerk stand. 119/6
Deepti Sharma1542211.463020
22b to GJ Gibbs, given, and that's a brave decision from the umpire! Gibbs steps out, doesn't get to the pitch of this dipping offbreak, and looks to flick it away. Pitches outside off, spins past the inside edge and hits front pad. We'll have to see where the impact was, and what Hawkeye makes of where it was headed. Hitting the stumps for sure, and the impact was just in line with off stump. Wise decision not to review. 24/2
Charlie Dean1031311.302000
29b to FC Wilson, gone, the Invincibles are three down. Looks to make a bit of room to - I think - punch through the off side, but the ball turns back in from a fuller length than Wilson would prefer, and cramps her. Punches it straight back, at comfortable catching height, straight into Dean's lap. 29/3

Shabnim Ismail20141500.752020
Tash Farrant20102221.103000
76b to CL Tryon, slower ball, Tryon completely foxed - and given! Was that lbw, or a stumping? Might have been close to impact outside the line, but she asks umpire Lloyd on the way off and there's no review. She heaved a cross-batted shot that failed to connect, Invincibles went up for the lbw; Tryon then appeared to leave her ground, so Bryce smashed the stumps for good measure. 75/4
77b to FR Davies, bowled her, golden duck for Davies! Another slowie and it's right on target as Davies swipes across the line! No doubt about the method of dismissal here. Two in two for the cock-a-hoop Farrant, and Spirit are fading badly. 75/5
Mady Villiers2082411.202110
26b to DJS Dottin, sweeps and gets a top edge, taken by Grace Gibbs! This wasn't easy, running back from backward square, took it coming down over her right shoulder... and then explodes in celebration, eyes popping, "C'mon!" the roar. Villiers, having hit her first ball at Lord's for six, adds a wicket with her first delivery. 19/1
Dane van Niekerk2073031.504100
33b to ND Dattani, steepling chance to long-on... brilliantly held! Eva Gray is the sub fielder who's on for Ismail, and she's grabbed her moment here! Sprinting in, she was struggling to get there but threw herself full length and came up with the goods! Wicket for van Niekerk, Spirit lose their second. 27/2
85b to HC Knight, Knight goes for the slog-sweep, but is taken in the deep! That's the game, you'd think... van Niekerk gets her opposite number, Knight attempting to hit to the longest part of the ground but she couldn't get enough on it. Gibbs plunges to take a safe catch, and the Invincibles erupt. They know they're nearly home. 83/6
86b to SE Rowe, Rowe castled first ball! Tossed up, BIG air on the ball, Rowe made the move but was nowhere near it, skidding through to rattle the stumps and leave van Niekerk on a hat-trick. 83/7
