wins it with an impudent reverse-slap! One-bounce four, a fourth consecutive boundary for Capsey, the birthday girl icing the cake and blowing out Supers' candles in the process. Invincibles coast to victory by nine wickets with 16 balls to spare!
8.55pm: Clinical from the champions. It looked like Superchargers had put up a decent total, asking the home side to pull off a record chase for the women's Hundred, but in the end they stood no chance of defending that target in the face of an international-quality top three. Lauren Winfield-Hill, on Invincibles debut and against her old side, led the way with an unbeaten 74, while Suzie Bates was typically inventive and composed; Alice Capsey then produced the teenage kicks to finish things in style. That's a wrap for the first night of the women's Hundred, but stick around for more from those at the ground, and we'll be back for more double-header action tomorrow. Bye!
Lauren Winfield-Hill is the Match Hero: "It was great fun. I had to work quite hard, the Superchargers girls know me quite well and closed down my strengths. Great fun batting with Suze and nice to get a win. Came to a new team, the staff and girls have been awesome and made me feel welcome. Trying to take the game on, powerplay batting sets the tone. Have some fun out there, enjoying this team environment, and there's worse places to bat than here at the Oval. We've got some good senior players and some exciting youth, we cover all bases and are hungry to do the double."
smashed through square leg! Capsey is rattling them off without a care in the world
pumped down the ground, could be a catching chance to long-on... but it bounces short, and then spins past the fielder! Only going one way now
reverse-swept with a vengeance! Tossed up outside off and Capsey sends it skimming away to the fence at backward point
And that set has almost sealed it for Invincibles. Smith back
down the pitch again, slapped at cover and a misfield brings them one more
creamed for a straight six! Capsey on the charge now, skips out and melts a full delivery all the way over the rope
nudged down the ground
full, straight and paddled for four more! Lovely touch and she gets it past the dive of short fine leg
goes back and plays a late cut straight to short third
Requirement down to 26 from 25
opens the face and runs it fine, deft touch from Winfield-Hill to beat short third and ease Invincibles' path further
cracked back over the bowler! LW-H clears the front leg and ab-so-lute-ly mullers a straight four!
full and straight, 72mph, LW-H swings across the line and thick-edges to fine leg
pitched up and bashed through the covers
swipes across the line, mistimed towards long-on but Gunn can't get to it running in
Davidson-Richards on, 38 needed from 30
cut off the back foot through cover point
dropped at square leg! Fantastic effort from Heath, who leaps and gets a hand up at full stretch, then nearly has a go at catching the rebound. But the ball ends up going to ground
Alice Capsey, England's teen tyro - on her 18th birthday - is next in
tempts the big shot, but Bates has holed out! Slog-swept in the leg side, but Wolvaardt is quickly across to hold a sliding effort. Can Supers produce a squeeze from here?
dabbed towards short third
slow and loopy, Gunn's moon ball is jabbed away into the point region
Gunn back from the Pavilion End
paddled away fine! Flighted delivery and LW-H follows her partner's lead in utilising the crease and angling the ball for four
