Thank you for joining us at the live coverage for the 23rd game of The Hundred between Oval Invincibles and Birmingham Phoenix, this was Vatsal Negandhi alongside Nikhil Kalla and our scorer/analyst Paras Yadav. Stay tuned as we join you with other fixtures across the globe until then take care and stay safe!
Moeen Ali (Winning Captain): "We were a bit under par. We couldn't go hard at them. We were struggling a little. The seamers were fantastic. We could have been a little smarter with the batting. We could have used the dimensions better. You feel you could always go harder. I just told Livingstone not to lose his shape. I didn't bowl because I didn't want to get smashed (laughs). A lot of the time it is about your gut feeling. You will get the odd one wrong. When you defend once or twice or three times, the bowers get a lot of confidence. Helm had a brilliant game today. He has been outstanding in the last three-four games. We have tried to get guys who can stay the entire length of the competition. We have Manchester next and then the Spirits."
Kane Richardson(Hero of the Match): "Always nice to win. It is a tough ground to defend. The way we closed it out when they were coming hard at us was good. Tom Helm bowled a class over. He should have been standing here I feel. I just used the dimensions of the field. It is always challenging with a left-hander and a right-hander. I think we know we will be hard to beat at home. We have two more to go. There are teams ahead of us on the table."
VATSAL: An excellent win for Birmingham Phoenix here as they beat the Oval Invincibles by 10 runs at the Kia Oval in London.

The Birmingham Phoenix putting into Bat 1st started off nicely with Smeed (23 off 13) and Hammond (17 off 11). Moeen Ali and Livingstone batted well through the middle, Ali, in particular, timing the ball really well. Ali eventually departed for 42 off 25 and Livingstone scored 45 off 32.

Wade chipped in with 21 off 12 and got them to 166 for 6 in 100 balls.

The Invincibles bowling was decent with Milnes getting 3 for 32 in his 20 balls. Hasnain got a wicket. Narine was the most economical bowler for them as he got 2 for 21 in his 20 balls to keep the Phoenix to 166.

 Chasing 167, the Invincibles got off to a poor start losing Jacks for 4 and Rossouw for 5. Roy was struggling in the middle and got some chances. He eventually departed for 21. Cox (32) and S Curran(30) played some really good shots to keep them in the game. Billings went for a golden duck. T Curran in the end smashed 30 off just 12 to keep the Invincibles in the hunt. S Narine could not do the job in his last game and Oval Invincibles ended with 156 for 8 in 100 balls.

The Phoenix bowling was outstanding throughout as they picked wickets at regular intervals. K Richardson picked up 3 for 22 in his 20 and was supported by Helm who bowled exceptionally to get 3 for 11 in his 20-ball spell. Brookes and Howell got a wicket a piece to round off an excellent bowling effort.
