Scorecard summary
London Spirit (Women)93/10(96 balls)
Southern Brave (Women)97/3(92 balls)

5.21pm Right, that's your lot. Alan Gardner is all set to launch the men's game shortly. Don't stray too far!

5.17pm Stafanie Taylor sees Brave to their fourth win out of four. They are the form team, with power players in so many areas. London Spirit, however, have issues aplenty. They beat Phoenix in their opening game, but have had no joy since then. Decent cameos from Wyatt and Dunkley, but a target of 94 was never enough - thanks largely to Amanda-Jade Wellington, whose four wickets wrecked the contest, in spite of Tammy Beaumont's loitering, and the small matter of 25 wides!

Amanda-Jade Wellington is the Hero of the Match: "We came back really well to restrict them to under 100 and I couldn't be prouder of the girls. Hopefully I can continue my good form for the team. I'm focussing on consistently performing... Warne, I'm a big fan, who doesn't love Warney. If we keep going the way we are going, hopefully we can make it to the end."

85
Sharma to Taylor, no run

another sweep, struck outside the line, not out... but Spirit review. A touch optimistic if you ask me. In fact, there's a spike too on the glove. Nothing doing for that one

Sharma to Taylor, no run

low full-toss, can't capitalise

Abhijato: "A meltdown at the back end of the innings is the only way this match can turn from 'slow' to a 'slow burn' ... But I suspect that's as far as my optimism will allow me to go tonight." We'll put this down to experience. Not the most riveting sport of the day!

back of a length, nudged down into the leg side, and Taylor seizes on the misfield

73

Munro to Taylor, 1 run

hoicked off the back foot, good power but mid-on sprawls well to intercept
