Scorecard summary
Southern Brave (Women) 101/7(100 balls)
Oval Invincibles (Women) 105/5(94 balls)

5.48pm: Oval Invincibles are up on the stage, lifting the ginormous Hundred H once again. They have produced in the clutch moments, this time topping the group and then sweeping aside Brave, pumped up after winning yesterday's eliminator, despite having lost the toss. And they've also managed one of the more unusual selection issues, with regular captain Dane van Niekerk, their star player last season, playing just three games this time around, with Bates preferred for the balance of their side. Anyway, on we go, as always with the Fundred - the men's final between Trent Rockets and Manchester Originals is coming up shortly (they've pushed the toss and start time back by 15 mins due to some technical issues at the ground). So head over for the build-up with Andrew Miller, and stick around for more reaction from our team at the ground. Bye!

5.35pm: For the second year running, Invincibles have prevailed against Brave on the Hundred's big stage. For the second year running, Marizanne Kapp is the start performer for the women in teal. Though worth a mention for Emily Windsor, playing her first innings of this year's competition, who ensured there would be no further wobbles from 78 for 5. Charlotte Edwards will have to go back to the drawing board, after seeing her all-star side come unglued at the final hurdle once again

Here's Invincibles captain Suzie Bates: "Sort of a little bit overwhelmed. The way we've responded, with four overseas players we had to leave one out. Everyone turns up on game day, the way Kapp batted was awesome. To go back to back and be a part of it is amazing. [Kapp] 100%, she's one of the best allrounders in the world and she showed why. She shows up for those tough moments. Our bowling group was outstanding, it got pretty tense there, with our middle order having not batted much, it was always going to be a nervy chase. Really pleased the whole squad performed and nice to get the win. [Capsey] She's a big-moment player, I felt I could give her the strike and stand and watch. Under pressure you need to be brave and she's done that all season. [Recipe for success] It's my first season, but the South Africans are tough. We've got some young players and a nice balance. Train hard and enjoy their cricket."

Marizanne Kapp is once again Match Hero in the final: "It's been an amazing journey. I have to credit to my team, they've all been amazing. You're always nervous in finals, especially with low scores. It was really tough out there but luckily we got across the line. [Conditions?] It was difficult, I probably should have been out a few times. But credit to Emily at the end, she took a lot of pressure off myself. [Capsey] Every single person has contributed, Caps is a talent and she'll go far. Loved the tournament, it's my favourite. the crowds have been amazing throughout. Thanks guys for coming out and supporting women's cricket."
