London Spirit register a narrow win against Oval Invincibles

Nathan Ellis and Jordan Thompson's PowerPlay exploits helped London Spirit secure a three-run win over Oval Invincibles at the Kennington Oval on Thursday. Australian quick Ellis and Thompson blew the Invincibles' top-order to smithereens before Hilton Cartwright and Jordan Cox revived the home side with a stand of 74. Danny Briggs (29 off 11 balls) almost pulled off the unlikeliest of wins for Invincibles, but Thompson kept his cool to hand London Spirit victory.

London Spirit 171 for 6 (Morgan 47) beat Oval Invincibles 168 for 7 (Cartwright 42, Ellis 3-28) by four wickets
