Birmingham Phoenix made light work of a humongous 173-run target set by Oval Invincibles, knocking it down with six balls to spare to post back-to-back wins and climb atop the points table. A run-fest in the true sense of the word, the euphoric affair bore witness to nine maximums springing off the Phoenix willows. Besides Chris Benjamin, dashers Will Smeed and Moeen Ali were the enablers-in-chief, launching four and three sixes to respectively to help their franchise execute a Goliath of a task.
