Southern Brave team have secured their place in the playoffs after beating the Oval Invincibles in the T20 Hundred Match by 6 wickets. On August 16, 2021, this match took place in Southampton and was watched live at Fan code.
The 40 innings of Alex Davies and Colin de Grandhomme placed the Braves at this position with a daring chase of 135. The Braves’ win was then set up by Jake Lintott when he upstaged Invincibles’ overseas partnership of Sunil Narine and Tabraiz Shamsi. This pair had recorded 0 for 61 in 40 balls in the run chase, but then Lintott, the left-arm wrist-spinner, managed 3 for 14.
Even with the flying beginning where they were 46 for 0 after 16 balls, Lintott fixed Invincibles back. However, Alex Blake’s 44 is not out guaranteed they had something to bowl at. Brave lost three early wickets in the pursuit and battled to score freely; however, a quiet, whole remain of 67 among Davies and de Grandhomme fixed the success. Davies pulled Reece Topley for six to get them across the line with five balls to save and were named the Southern Brave vs. Oval Invincibles match-winner.
For this match, Brave lost two overseas openers inside 11 balls. Quinton de Kock sliced Toley directly to point, and Paul Stirling got a leading edge in the wake of neglecting to peruse a Curran more slow ball. Then they lost their captain, James Vince, who was speared by Davise and run-out scrambling to make his ground at the non-striker’s end. Davies was under pressure and even said it wasn’t helpful to run the captain out.
Brave had begun their season with defeats, just as their head coach Mahela Jayawardene’s time with the Mumbi Indians. However, they have won all five completed games from this time, where four of them were at home. They will be playing against Trent Rockets on August 19, 2021, if Birmingham Phoenix beat Northern Superchargers. If the Phoenix loses, Brave will go direct to the Hundred series finals.
Meanwhile, the women’s T20 Hundred Match continues, and there has been a match of Brave against Invincibles. Brave beat Invincibles by 30 runs.
Brave needed Sophia Dunkley’s 58 to give a competitive 115-3 on a slow pitch at the Ageas Bowl for this game. Luckily, Amanda-Jade Wellington, the Australian leg-spinner, gave terrific records of 4-12 making the Ovals to a dull 85 all out off 94 balls. Even with their win, the Brave batters had struggled to get on top of the seam and spin and gave 115-3. This is their lowest record of all the games they have played in the Hundred T20 match innings at this point. Sophia Dunkley shared a third-wicket stand of 75 Taylor, but Jo Gardner later dropped them.
The Invincibles had been sloppy during the match, but they have already guaranteed a second spot and a spot in the eliminator. However, they will need to improve on this to have a chance at winning the league. They will know who they are going to play against when Northern Superchargers face Birmingham Phoenix.
