Freya Kemp smashed 41 to win Southern Brave’s last home game of the season against The Oval Invincibles.

The Oval Invincibles were favourites to win with the Brave needing 42 from the final 20 balls.

A maximum each from Georgia Adams and Freya Kemp brought the hosts back into the game with 15 needed from the final 10. Kemp finished the game in style reaching the target of 131 with a six over cow corner. 

Adams ended with 50* as her side remained top of the table with one match to play. 

Anya Shrubsole, who will retire from cricket at the end of the season, captained the Brave in her final home match in the Hundred.  

Winning the toss and electing to bat the visitors lost the dangerous Alice Capsey as she pulled Lauren Bell’s fifth ball to Danni Wyatt for a two ball duck. 

Shrubsole added the wicket of Lauren Winfield-Hill five balls later when Maia Bouchier took an excellent low catch at mid-on. 

Oval Invincibles were restricted to just 25-2 from their powerplay. Suzie Bates and Marizanne Kapp steadied the ship with a 53 run partnership but failed to kick on as Kapp was caught at deep mid wicket to Maitlan Brown just past the halfway point of the innings.

Suzie Bates upped the visitors' scoring as she passed 50 on the 80th delivery of the innings. 

Adams continued her excellent form with the ball as she dismissed Paige Schofield for 30 to another excellent catch from Bouchier at long-on. The next delivery Adams ran Bates out for 55, throwing down the stumps as the batter set off for a risky single. 

Nadine De Klerk was victim to more excellent fielding from the Brave as Chloe Tryon, took a diving catch off the bowling of Kalea Moore from the penultimate delivery. 

In reply to 130-6 Smriti Mandhana skied a leading edge to mid-wicket as she was dismissed by Kapp for two.

Danni Wyatt was dismissed bowled by de Klerk 16 balls later. Brave were behind the rate as they scored 21 from the powerplay. 

The Oval Invincibles piled on the pressure to Bouchier and Adams as the required rate grew to 72 needed from 44. Bouchier was then dismissed by Schofield for 22, as she was caught at midwicket trying to break the shackles. 

Freya Kemp offered some relief as she hit her first ball for four. Kemp ended on 41*(21), with her six winning the match and eliminating the two times Hundred champions.
