9.15pm: At the sixth time of asking, London Spirit have chalked up a W. Brad Wheal headlined the defence with 4 for 17, as Colin Ackermann’s half-century went in vain – and defeat for Manchester Originals puts a dent in their knockout qualification hopes, too
Brad Wheal is Hero of the Match: “Amazing, we had a great atmosphere here, good to get over the line been a tough tournament so far. [Crowd] It was good fun. That’s what we live for, the environment we love bowling in. Cutters were gripping, the odd one skidding on. Spinners did well, Mase bowled well, so a good game for us all round. [Warne as coach] Amazing, little bits of knowledge he drops in are just incredible, you just pinch yourself sometimes.”
Right, well that was a close-run thing, but a second win of the day for the visitors from London. Originals’ spin wasn’t quite the success we thought it would be at EOT… Anyway, we’re done for another night in the Hundred. Back for more tomorrow. Cheerio!
