8.55pm: Well, we've seen a Hundred classic, a full fat serving with cream to end double double-header day. And we're going to do it all over again tomorrow! Time for me to enter the decompression chamber, but stick around for Valkerie Baynes' report, and join us for more 100-balls madness in the morning, starting with the women in the London derby at Lord's. Until then, thanks for your comments, ta ra for now!

8.47pm: Yeesh, that was some chase! The Superchargers just kept coming, even after Harry Brook's sparkling knock came to an end with 37 needed from 17. In the end, Welsh Fire's winning margin came down to the six Jimmy Neesham slotted off the final ball of their innings. Qais Ahmad was the main man on a bad night for bowlers and his four-for helped get Fire over the line even as the boundaries rained at a heaving Headingley

And Qais Ahmad is a fitting Hero of the Match, having gone at 0.65 runs per ball on a night when everyone else got carted: "Very enjoyable. Pitch was good for spin, not too much turn, but the captain and coach had faith in me. The crowd supported both teams."

1
Ball to Carse, 1 run, pitched up and slogged leg side, but he sends it to deep square on the bounce! After a breathless chase, Fire hold on to win by five runs!

One ball, six needed for a tie

Here's Matt: "Jake Ball has used this round-the-wicket, hit the heel yorker tactic for both Notts and Sydney Sixers over the last year with Dan Christian the main influence behind it"

"So, now they've missed the cut-off and have a man inside the circle, but now they can take they now take as long as they like to make decisions? Shouldn't there be a second time limit before a run penalty or am I being too old-skool and not down with the kids?" Yes, probably, Stuart

1
Ball to Potts, 1 run, full and smashed back, Ball takes the blow! Arguably a catchable chance, he got a hand in the way, but perhaps as importantly kept them to a single

Eight needed, two boundaries

19.3
1lb
Ball to Carse, 1 leg bye, length ball, 82mph outside leg stump, Carse wipes across the line... but it hits the pads and trickles for one
19.2
1
Ball to Potts, 1 run, superbly bowled, 84mph yorker on the pads, Potts can't do anything other then dig it out to leg
19.1
1
Ball to Carse, 1 run, round the wicket to Carse, full on leg stump and he hacks it to mid-on backing away

Last five, 11 runs needed, this is going all the way... Jake Ball the man to bowl. Fire can only have four men out, remember

END OF OVER:
19 | 12 Runs | NS-M: 163/7 (11 runs required from 5 balls, RR: 8.57, RRR: 11.00)

Payne to Potts, 1 run, fired in and cracked down to long-off, just a single

One more ball for Payne, can he get out?
