Nathan Ellis castles Jordan Cox for 39

The quicker one did the trick for Nathan Ellis as he bowled Jordan Cox for 39 in a high-scoring thriller in The Hundred. The delivery was bowled at 84mph, and Cox moved leg-side, probably expecting a slower ball. He got into an awkward position and swung wildly only to miss as the length ball crashed into the sticks. Thanks to Ellis’ 3/28, London Spirit sealed a three-run win over Oval Invincibles at the Oval.
