Despite late fireworks for Tim David, Southern Brave slipped to an eight run defeat to Oval invincibles. 

Tim David scored 44*(18) including five maximums, but proved to be too little too late for the hosts who struggled to get close to the Invincibles score throughout their chase. 

Oval Invincibles won the toss and elected to bat. A bizarre start to the innings saw Tymal Mills duck underneath a tame catch which rolled away for four, as he lost the ball in the sun.

Craig Overton dismissed Will Jacks for 13 with the 16th ball of the innings. Upon review the LBW decision was upheld as the ball was hitting the top of leg stump on hawk eye.

Chris Jordan uprooted Jason Roy's off stump for 28 as the batter danced down the wicket on the 39th ball.  

Rehan Ahmed added a third wicket as he trapped Tawanda Muyeye LBW on the 44th ball.

Jordan picked up a second with the innings in the balance as he sent Heinrich Klaasen’s middle stump cartwheeling for 18. Jordan castled his third, two balls later as he bowled Sam Billings for a two ball duck. 

Mills rectified his previous drop with a stunning catch to dismiss Sam Curran. The left arm bowler displayed a lightning fast reaction to take the catch off his own bowling with a full extension of his right arm above his head. 

The wickets continued to tumble as James Vince ran out his Hampshire teammate Ross Whiteley with a rapid arm from mid-off.

Tom Curran and Nathan Sowter, saw out the remaining 22 balls bringing to total 139-7, with Curran contributing 43*(28) to post a competitive 139-7.

In reply Tom Curran removed Devon Conway for 16 caught behind on the 22nd ball. Sowter and Adam Zampa frustrated the Brave as Vince and Finn Allen struggled to score. 

Roy juggled a catch running in at full tilt to dismiss Allen who skied a Tom Curran delivery to mid off. 

Will Jacks bowled Leus du Plooy with a big turning off break to start an excellent first set of five which conceded just one run.

Southern Brave were in trouble when Vince holed out to long-on off the bowling of Zampa for a laboured 11(15) with the hosts needing 70 from the final 35 balls.

Colin Akermann was caught pulling Sam Curran with 67 left to get in 30 balls as hope of a Brave victory faded away. 

A pair of well taken high catches off the bowling of Zampa and Sam Curran dismissed Chris Jordan and George Garton respectively to all but seal the win for the Invincibles.

Some late Tim David power hitting dragged brave to within 8 runs of the total but it was too little too late as the Brave were mathematically out of the contest with six balls remaining.
