James Vince led the charge with 71 from 41 balls as defending champions Southern Brave registered a facile nine-wicket victory over Welsh Fire in the The Hundred opener of 2022. It was a lopsided affair as Brave limited Fire to 107-7 from their 100 balls in Southampton and then overhauled that total in just 69 balls as skipper Vince provided the star turn.

Welsh Fire 107-7 from 100 balls – Jordan (2-16 from 15 balls), C Overton (2-21 from 20 balls); Duckett (40 off 31 balls) lost to Southern Brave 109-1 from 69 balls – Vince (71* off 41 balls), Davies (26 off 21 balls); Ball (1-25 off 19 balls)
