Birmingham Phoenix (Playing XI): Will Smeed, Miles Hammond, Moeen Ali(c), Liam Livingstone, Chris Benjamin(w), Dan Mousley, Benny Howell, Graeme van Buuren, Tom Helm, Kane Richardson, Imran Tahir

Trent Rockets (Playing XI): Alex Hales, Dawid Malan, Colin Munro, Joe Root, Tom Kohler-Cadmore(w), Lewis Gregory(c), Samit Patel, Daniel Sams, Rashid Khan, Luke Wood, Matthew Carter

Trent Rockets bowling first

Welsh Fire need 159 off 100 balls to beat the Invincibles in Game 5

Change of innings odds:

Invincibles 1.39 v 3.25 Welsh FIre

direct hit and Clarke was gone there

Game 5 of the The Hundred

Welsh Fire Need 93 off 50 Balls [9 Wickets In Hand] to beat The Oval Invincibles

pretty interesting game here.

Clarke needs to hit out or get out now

32 off 24 a bit too circumspect for me

London Spirit look the real deal to me.

Going to be challenging for the title with that solid batting lineup

Phoenix: 1 Will Smeed, 2 Matthew Wade, 3 Moeen Ali (capt), 4 Liam Livingstone, 5 Chris Benjamin (wk), 6 Miles Hammond, 7 Benny Howell, 8 Tom Helm, 9 Henry Brookes, 10 Kane Richardson, 11 Imran Tahir

Brave: 1 Quinton de Kock (wk), 2 James Vince (capt), 3 Marcus Stoinis, 4 Alex Davies, 5 Tim David, 6 Ross Whiteley, 7 James Fuller, 8 George Garton, 9 Chris Jordan, 10 Jake Lintott, 11 Tymal Mills

Brave won the toss and elected to bowl first

Runs line for Phoenix is around the Under/Over 155.5 runs verse the Brave

Southern Brave need 177 Runs off 100 balls to beat the Birmingham Phoenix to win game 8

Well played Will Smeed on your 100

Will Smeed is getting an IPL contract next year. Wouldn’t be massively surprised if he’s a wildcard pick for England in the World Cup. On this form there’s every chance he get in.

Surprise to hear that

dont know if its just me but de Kock has never really striked me as someone that can bat deep under pressure. Gets out with a rash short there

Can the man from Singapore save the Southern Brave here? Mighty Tim David

Henry Brookes with a 5fer!

Teams:

Northern Superchargers (Playing XI): Adam Lyth, Faf du Plessis(c), Michael-Kyle Pepper, Dwayne Bravo, John Simpson(w), Adam Hose, David Wiese, Craig Miles, Roelof van der Merwe, Ben Raine, Adil Rashid

Previous scores batting at The Oval 1st in the Hundred: 145, 121, 125, 146, 96, 171 (in order of most recent)

Sam Curran gets the first wicket of the innings, next batter Michael Pepper

Lyth 50 up in 17 balls, some clean hitting here

Lyth goes for 79 off 32 delivers

Fair innings that one
