Ball by Ball Live Score Commentary

End of Over No.20 136/7 Last Over (9 runs)

9.25pm: Whoosh. The Hundred has landed its alien spacecraft on the lawn of English cricket, lasers set to stun. It's slick, it's noisy, and it's going to dominate the stage in high summer. Get strapped in, folks. Anyway, that's enough waffling for tonight - Miller is ballin' his way through the report, which will be up soon, and we'll be back for the first double-header, between the men's and women's teams of Birmingham Phoenix and Trent Rockets at Edgbaston tomorrow. Bye!

9.15pm: Not quite the same drama at the end, but the same result for the Oval Invincibles. The choons are belting out, the crowd sounds truly sozzled, and the Men's Hundred has also got off without a hitch. I thought they might struggle to defend 145 on a ground that's usually high-scoring, but all the bowlers did their bit - only Reece Topley went at more than 1.60 a ball - and Originals couldn't get any of the top order to bat through. Carlos Brathwaite attempted to roll back the years, but eventually plinked one to long-on rather than over the ropes.

Here's winning skip, and Player Hero of the Match, Sam Billings: "Unbelievable atmosphere, one of the best grounds in the world. Great to get first win on the board and follow the ladies' example. Very partisan here at the Oval, the support was phenomenal, local lads closed the game out brilliantly at the end. [Pitch?] Bit slow, we saw spin throughout. Used pitch been in the sun, what we expected. But it's about adapting, and thankfully we got enough on the board tonight. [Par score?] Definitely 150-160 on a good pitch. But on that pitch we were there or thereabouts. [Narine] He's phenomenal, done it all around the world, to have him on your side - batsmen coming in and facing that is as difficult as anything."

Originals captain Jos Buttler: [First thoughts?] "As the tournament goes on more things will unravel. Thought it was a great game, atmosphere, loved the product and had a great night. [Oval support] Lots of city rivalries, hope the cities back their franchise, nice to have a partisan side and we hope to have great support in Manchester. Bit of a challenge with our squad, guys pulling out but that has presented chances. They'll take an enormous amount from that, playing in the opening night of the Men's Hundred. [Compare to T20] Felt quicker, two balls into the five-ball over you have to make a decision. I like the opportunity to carry on [for ten], will create some great match-ups. Been great to see families, looks like they had a great nice tonight."

19.52 SM Curran to Hartley pitched up and Hartley can only shovel it down to long-on, meaning Invincibles win by nine runs - the Oval outfit remains appropriately named, after the men emulate the women by claiming the opening-night spoils! 2 runs

Flake time. One ball to come

19.42 SM Curran to Hartley fullish length outside off, Hartley slaps it through point for a couple, this won't be enough 2 runs
19.31 SM Curran to Klaassen fires in the full-pace yorker as a follow-up, Klaassen can't do anything with that 1 run

Klaassen can't get out. But can he nail a boundary?

19.32 SM Curran to Klaassen oh no, slower ball gone wrong! Big Sam gives up a no-ball and a free hit with one that misses the cut strip down the leg side! 2 no balls
19.22 SM Curran to Klaassen full, Klaassen ramps it leg side, Mahmood has to turn and run... but he does well, keeps them to two 2 runs

Fred Klaassen on strike, four to go

19.1W SM Curran to Brathwaite pitched up and smashed downtown... but it doesn't have the legs, pouched at long-on! You thought that was right in the slot for Brathwaite, but he hung his head in frustration as Roy ran around the boundary and held it safely at chest-height OUT
CR Brathwaite c Roy b SM Curran 37 (29b 2x4 1x6) SR: 127.58

Sam Curran to bowl 'em

Originals need 19 from the last six five. Carlos only needed four in Kolkata five years ago...

End of Over No.19 127/6 Last Over (7 runs)
18.52 TK Curran to Brathwaite fired in full and straight, not quite yorker-length again... but Brathwaite can only pound it flat to long-off, solid finish to Curran's allocation 2 runs
18.42 TK Curran to Brathwaite goes for the blockhole, Brathwaite tries to get under it, can only flip a couple into the leg side 2 runs
18.31 TK Curran to Hartley full on the stumps and tickled to leg 1 run

"Interesting one here for the new playing conditions," says Matt Roller, "think they crossed by the time Curran took the catch but the new bat Hartley has to be on strike." Yep, Brathwaite wanted to go down, but he'll have to stand and watch for now

18.2W TK Curran to Harrison full toss, taken at mid-off! Harrison's hard-scrabble knock comes to an end in the dying embers... TeeCee missed his yorker by a distance but it was miscued to the edge of the ring, SCurran taking a good low catch OUT
CG Harrison c SM Curran b TK Curran 23 (16b 3x4 0x6) SR: 143.75
18.12 TK Curran to Harrison back of a length, pace off at 73mph and Harrison has to wait for it, swung leg side... tight at the bowler's end as Curran flicks on to the stumps but Brathwaite was home 2 runs

"Don't take me home!" is the boozy cry from the crowd. Last ten, from the Vauxhall End, Tom Curran for his final set

End of Over No.18 120/5 Last Over (8 runs)

And the Invincibles call for their strategic timeout, with 26 needed off ten. Right in Carlos' wheelhouse, you'd have to say, although he's not connected with many so far tonight

17.51 SM Curran to Harrison nicely bowled, dipping slower ball outside leg stump, deflects off the pads as Harrison swings across the line 1 leg bye
17.44 SM Curran to Harrison smashed through the leg side! Just slightly overpitched and he crunches it off his toes past deep midwicket FOUR
17.31 SM Curran to Brathwaite pitched up, decent yorker and Brathwaite digs it out 1 run

Sounds like Billings is chivvying his players on. They will lose players outside the ring if they go over time (although the umpires will make some allowances)

17.21 SM Curran to Harrison pitched up, Harrison clips one more off his legs 1 run

"I thought this had to be finished by 9pm?" Yeeeaaahh, that's the idea, Jonny

17.11 SM Curran to Brathwaite over the wicket, full on the stumps and nudged through midwicket 1 run

Sam Curran takes over for the next set

End of Over No.17 112/5 Last Over (13 runs)
16.51 TK Curran to Harrison full and wide and slapped to backward point, they hurry through 1 run
16.44 TK Curran to Harrison thick-edges four to third! Back-of-the-hander, I think, and Harrison swung wildly, gladly accepted the boundary FOUR
16.31 TK Curran to Brathwaite shortish at the body tis time, shovelled through the leg side 1 run
16.26 TK Curran to Brathwaite hold the pose! Brathwaite slams six over long-off! Just a length ball, right where Carlos likes it, right elbow coming through high as he nails the ball hard and flat SIX
16.11 TK Curran to Harrison fullish length, maybe pace off, punched into the covers 1 run

Into the, ahem, death balls. Tom Curran back from the Pavilion End

End of Over No.16 99/5 Last Over (6 runs)

Billings is happy enough with singles. "Easy, easy!" is the call to the fielder

15.51 Narine to Harrison non-turner, skidding on towards off stump, Harrison bunts into the covers and they scramble one 1 run
15.41 Narine to Brathwaite lobbed up on the stumps, Brathwaite tucks through square leg 1 run
15.32 Narine to Brathwaite full on the pads, paddled away towards fine leg... Mahmood does a great bit of fielding on the rope 2 runs
15.22 Narine to Brathwaite more crafty, flighty fiendishness and Brathwaite does managed to clip this for a couple 2 runs
15.10 Narine to Brathwaite floated up on middle and leg, can't get it away no run

Sunil Narine is back on

Official attendance tonight is 18,126, by the way

End of Over No.15 93/5 Last Over (5 runs)
14.51 Sowter to Harrison flat legbreak, no room to work with, another single through midwicket - very good set from Sowter 1 run
14.41 Sowter to Brathwaite tossed up on the stumps and Brathwaite works to leg 1 run
14.31 Sowter to Harrison attempts the ramp, not a clean connection but they pick up one 1 run
14.21 Sowter to Brathwaite fired in flat and Brathwaite nurdles leg side 1 run
