In London, the Oval Invincibles had a decisive victory over the Southern Brave, and Will Jacks had the highest Hundred score of any player. In a chase for 138, Jacks, the opener for the Invincibles, remained unbroken on 108 after only 48 balls, becoming only the second player in this competition to reach the century mark. Meanwhile, the Brave suffered their third consecutive loss.
Due to the fact that there weren’t enough runs on the board to begin with, the quest for the Invincibles turned out to be very uncomplicated in the end. Rilee Rossouw and Jacks combined for 57 runs during a partnership that eventually won the game for their team.
Of those runs, Jacks was responsible for scoring 47 of them thanks to his early strike that led to the early dismissal of Jason Roy without scoring a run. George Garton had struck early to send Jason Roy back to the dugout without scoring a run. Tim David ran out Rossouw for 10, but there was no stopping Jacks, who blasted 10 fours and 8 sixes in his superb knock. This continued Jacks’ fine form after he scored 81 in the game before this one. As the Invincibles strolled to a seven-wicket victory, finishing the chase in 82 balls, and continuing their winning streak with three wins in a row, he was unrelenting against both pace and spin.
Earlier, Reece Topley’s 3-for-24 had made a hole in the Brave’s innings, as he was responsible for accounting for the top order. Marcus Stoinis’s 37 runs off of 27 balls brought them back from being reduced to 14/2 and injected some energy into their game.
James Vince, who was batting at the other end, was having trouble getting going during their 55-run stand off of 43 deliveries. It turned out that the two sixes that Stoinis hit off of Sam Curran were the only two sixes that the Braves scored in their innings. Before James Fuller hit two fours to finish the game, David made a useful contribution by scoring 22 runs during his cameo. The final score was 137. The bowlers for the Invincibles were a little bit undisciplined, as seen by the fact that they gave up as much as 22 extra runs and 8 no-balls.
