Bowlers push London Spirit to top of the table

A well-oiled bowling effort led by Jordan Thompson (2/32) helped London Spirit pocket their third win, while defending champions Southern Brave were consigned to their second defeat on the trot. Vital batting contributions from Glenn Maxwell, Daniel Bell-Drummond and Kieron Pollard dragged Spirit to 147 for 6, after which the bowlers operated nicely in tandem to plot a successful defence of the total.
