The Hundred 2021: Sunday August 8th

 

The Hundred Women’s Competition


Oval Invincibles (Women) vs Trent Rockets (Women), 22nd Match 3:30PM

Match Abandoned without a ball bowled

Oval Invincibles and Trent Rockets moved level on points with Northern Superchargers in The Hundred table after their clash at the Kia Oval was rained off without a ball bowled.

Rockets' captain Nat Sciver had won the toss and elected to bat first before rain hammered down 10 minutes before the scheduled start.

That left a large puddle at the Vauxhall End of the ground which created a lengthy delay to mop up, and then further short sharp showers, just as the ground looked ready for action, forced more waiting.

A tentative 5.30pm start time was mooted but another burst of rain put an end to that pipedream as the match was officially abandoned at 5.10pm by umpires Rob Bailey and Sarah Bartlett.

Both sides now move to seven points alongside the Superchargers as the race for the Eliminator hots up – with Southern Brave three points clear of the trio at the top.

The match was just the second women’s Hundred game which has been abandoned without a ball bowled after Superchargers vs Manchester Originals earlier in the competition.


 

The Hundred Men’s Competition


Oval Invincibles (Men) vs Trent Rockets (Men), 22nd Match 7:00PM

 

Oval Invincibles 125/6 beat Trent Rockets 116/8 by nine runs

Jason Roy cracked his best Hundred score as Oval Invincibles put themselves back on track for the knockout stage in a 65-ball bonanza victory over Trent Rockets.

England star Roy whacked an unbeaten 56 in 29 balls as Invincibles scored an impressive 125 in their reduced allocation.

The Rockets’ chase faltered from the off as Sunil Narine claimed a wicket with the third ball to eventually take three for 11 to set up a nine-run win at the Kia Oval.

Invincibles, unbeaten at home, leapt up the table from sixth to second, just a point behind the Rockets.

Rockets won the toss and quickly chose to bowl after a frustrating mixture of blue skies and a wet outfield – which eventually saw the boundary brought in around 10 metres and the match restricted to 65 balls per side.

The 19,382 inside the Kia Oval turned from ire to frenzied excitement when the action started, helped by Jason Roy and Will Jacks powering Rashid Khan for sixes in the second five.

Rockets needed three attempts to take the first Invincibles wicket; Timm van der Gugten put down Jacks after a long hang time and Rashid shelled Roy before Dawid Malan finally held onto one at long-on to see of Jacks.

Narine chipped back to Matt Carter, Colin Ingram dealt with a full toss but was brilliantly pouched by Lewis Gregory while chasing wide outside off stump and Sam Billings was stumped of Samit Patel – who returned two for 21.

Roy went doolally by flinging Carter twice into the Peter May Stand while at the other end Alex Blake was bowled and Tom Curran deposited Rashid over the short boundary.

Curran sliced a catch up to third man to hand debutant Sam Cook his maiden Hundred wicket – his 10 balls miraculously only going for 10 runs.

Roy brought up his 27-ball fifty with a sweep four, his innings seeing four sixes and four fours, amid Laurie Evans closing out the 65 with a maximum over long-on.

Rockets hesitated at the imposing response – only reaching 116.

D’Arcy Short swept straight to fine leg for a three-ball duck but Hales got the chase going with a pair of tracer bullet-esque cut shots, before getting struck in the unmentionables twice in consecutive balls.

Malan picked out deep midwicket, Narine bowled Hales and found Tom Moores skying straight down the ground before Samit Patel cut to point and Steven Mullaney holed out to the leg side boundary.

Rashid and Gregory took the game deep but couldn’t get the required 17 off the last five – with Rashid caught and Carter run out.
