9.15pm: Right, that's yer lot from another night of the Hundred. Matt Roller's report will be in soon, and he's sharpening his pen for a summary of where London Spirit went wrong, too. Still time for you to brush up in time for the small matter of the Test starting at Trent Bridge tomorrow, as England and India go head to head - it should be a cracker. From myself and Himanshu, it's goodnight and good luck. Ta ra!

9.10pm: That was pretty woeful from Spirit, whose hopes in this tournament now hang by the slenderest of threads. They've lost four out of five (the other was a washout), and will need snookers to get anywhere near the knockouts. Big Willey style was the way to go for Superchargers, with the captain's brutal 81 from 45 followed up by bagging both openers in his initial ten-ball spell. Spirit only had two players score more than 12 in response, and were almost bowled out for less than 100 (which isn't why the competition is so named)

David Willey, as you'd expect, is the Hero of the hour: "Been coming, I've not contributed, so nice to do so tonight. [Captaincy] It's unfortunate circumstances with Faf unavailable, it's a great responsibility, really enjoying the Hundred and nice to contribute. First couple of games we made small mistakes but we're starting to come good and hopefully we can build some momentum. [Personal form] My goal was just to stay fit so a few performances along the way feels good. Every team has some fantastic cricketers, guys are tuning in to watch the Hundred."
