Tom Curran starred with bat and ball as Invincibles beat Brave to clinch their place in the men's knockout stages of The Hundred
Tom Curran produced a superb all-round performance as Oval Invincibles beat Southern Brave by eight runs to clinch their place in the men's knockout stages of The Hundred.
The Invincibles all-rounder hit 43 from 28 balls to lift the visitors from 90-7 to 139-7 before taking three wickets for 20 at the Ageas Bowl.
Jason Roy (28) had got Invincibles off to a good start before he was bowled by Chris Jordan, who took 3-20. Tim David's big-hitting came too late for the Brave, who finished on 131-7.
The win means that Invincibles have restored their four-point lead at the top of the table, and their place in the Lord's final will be confirmed if Manchester Originals fail to beat Northern Superchargers on Sunday.
Meanwhile, the Brave stay third and face the Originals in their final group game as they battle to qualify for the Eliminator.
