It is the second time Roy has been out from the first ball of an Invincibles innings this season. South Africa’s Heinrich Klaasen smashed a brilliant 46 off 22 balls including six sixes. He hit Adil Rashid for successive sixes before the England leg-spinner had him caught at long-on. Cox is now the second-highest run-scorer in the men’s competition this year with 163, two less than Manchester Originals’ Jos Buttler. Banton hit seven fours and five sixes in his 43-ball innings and demonstrated his power down the ground and his innovation with flicks and ramps. Superchargers were in charge of the chase with Adam Hose hitting 41 off 19 balls, including two ramped sixes. Invincibles bowler Gus Atkinson again impressed, taking 3-24 from his 20 balls, while Sam Curran took 2-31, including the wicket of Banton. You can watch Hundred matches on BBC Two and BBC iPlayer every Wednesday and Saturday throughout the competition, alongside both finals on Sunday, 27 August. More details.
