Oval Invincibles 142 times 3 (Jacks 108*) time brave south 137 for 6 (Stoinis 37, Topley 3-24) for seven wickets

Will Jacks posted the highest score ever seen in the Hundred to guide the Oval Invincibles to their third straight victory as they crushed Southern Brave by seven wickets.

Jacks, who scored 81 in his previous game against the Welsh Fire, enhanced that effort with a brutal assault on the Brave bowlers at The Oval, posting an undefeated 48-ball 108 to top Will Smeed’s 101 for Birmingham Phoenix four days later. before. The 23-year-old’s innings included eight sixes and 10 fours as the Invincibles came home with 18 unused deliveries.

It meant a third straight loss for the inaugural Hundred champions, who went 137 for 6 against some tight Invincibles bowling, a total that never seemed like enough to defend.

With the skies over South London beginning to turn cloudy, the Invincibles opted to pitch first and rely on Reece Topley’s ability to generate swing. That faith was rewarded when Topley struck an early double whammy, with Quinton de Kock superbly caught by Rilee Roussouw rushing in from the rim and Alex Davies playing the next set from the left arm.

Marcus Stoinis picked up the pace hitting Sam Curran in what turned out to be the only two sixes of the innings as he went 37-for-27, but the all-rounder succumbed to the return of Mohammad Hasnain, beating at mid-off hands.

Captain James Vince, who shared a 55-for-43 partnership with Stoinis, looked unusually subdued on his 15-for-22 and, despite some destructive shooting from Tim David (22-for-17), Brave’s innings never gained momentum.

Topley caught David again missing a forehand, but it was Sunil Narine and Tom Curran who really stifled the batsmen, conceding just 35 between them, though both went wicketless.

There was no relief for Jason Roy as the Invincibles launched their chase: the starter’s slump extended to a third duck in four innings when George Garton castled him on the second ball.

By contrast, Jacks has been in a terrific situation and started off by hitting Michael Hogan with two huge sixes, one of which rocketed off the ground, before subjecting Stoinis to a similar fate.

Roussouw was required to do little more than admire from the non-forward side as the pair went 56-for-37, a position that was ultimately ended by a brilliant field play from David, severing the stumps with a direct strike from the middle. run out of the left.

That wicket made little difference over the course of the game and, although Sam Billings fell to an excellent diving catch from Vince in the middle of the game, Jacks added to his hundred by crushing Rehan Ahmed for six, and gave the next ball the same treatment to seal. victory.
