6pm: That's your lot, Originals win by 17 runs on DLS, a first victory of the women's tournament for the Manchester outfit. Lizelle Lee is Hero of the Match for her unbeaten 43 in the chase: "It's a brilliant wicket, it came on to the bat quite nicely, but I have to credit to the bowlers. I thought we were going to chase 140-150 but they brought it back for us. [Lamb?] The way she batted today was amazing, she took the pressure off me, I wish she could do that every single game. [du Preez?] She's very experienced, I love batting with her and she did amazing. If it's in the slot it has to go and this game it paid off. [DLS calculations] That takes care of itself, we have to play our own game."

Have to say the weather doesn't look encouraging for the men's game in an hour, but head over there in a bit and Matt Roller will keep you up to speed with our Manchester rain watch. Ta ra, la!

5.55pm: Covers are firmly in place at Old Trafford, weather filling in. Why don't you pop over to Trent Bridge and see how the Test is goin... D'oh!

5.45pm: They won't hang around long here before declaring a result - another feature of the playing conditions for double-headers is that each match has its own timeslot, so it can't run into the later game. The start time for the men is 7pm, so won't be long before they are looking to start their preparations (should the weather allow)

Alex Wharf now signals for the groundstaff, they are going off here, rain beginning to come down steadily. Originals are well ahead on of the DLS par score of 80, and given there isn't much time to play with, look set to pocket their first win points of the tournament

"Is DLS applicable in 100?" It is, Ashish. Been tweaked especially

hang time... but gusted over the head of Bouchier at long-on! It seemed to be carrying straight to the fielder but, with the wind up, at the last moment cleared the fingertips for six!

no hesitation this time, tossed up full, Lee cracks it up and over mid-off! More humpty, no one out there, and it bounces away

63
Wellington to Lee, no run

flighted, spinning a touch outside off, defended cautiously

Still looking pretty dark around Manchester. On we go

And Southern Brave call for their strategic timeout, something about the arrival of Lee on strike making up Shrubsole's mind. Not out of the question they can drag it back from here, but they need to take a wicket or two with Lee looking in the mood

more skiffling in the crease from du Preez, jabbed through mid-on

Bell is back from the Statham End

DaWolf: "Hi - A request please. When you post the DLS score could you please says something like @DLS par score is 54/1 after 45 balls' or similar. At the moment it's a bit unclear for which over the DLS score applies to. Thank you." Sorry, old sport, but I can only post it when I see it on the scoreboards (or someone mentions it). I don't have the tables
