Tom Banton was at his destructive best against Southern Brave, carting George Garton for two sixes in a row with utter truculence. For starters, he waltzed down the track to bludgeon a loft straight as an arrow. Then, the youngster waited for the bowler to yank his length short and latched onto the toothless drag-down, slaughtering it over backward square leg to raze Garton's economy to dust. Banton made his highest score of The Hundred with a 20-ball 36 before holing out to deep midwicket off Jake Lintott.
