He used his variations to great effect, and his flipper was particularly difficult to pick.

Batting first, Oval Invicibles’ batters put on a mammoth total of 186 at the loss of 6 wickets off the 100-ball inning. Heinrich Klaasen blasted a whopping 60 runs off 27 balls to help his team post the gigantic total.
The Originals were never in the chase as they were bowled out at just 92 with 11 balls to spare.

The win moves the Invincibles to the top of the Hundred men’s standings. They have won two of their three matches so far, and they look like the team to beat this year.

Johnson and Narine’s performances were particularly impressive. Johnson has been a revelation in The Hundred so far, and he is now one of the leading wicket-takers for Invincible in the competition. Narine is a world-class bowler, and he showed his class once again with his 3 wickets.

Spencer Johnson: The star of the show

Spencer Johnson was the star of the show for the Invincibles with his brilliant bowling performance. He was very impressive in the bowling department when he broke the waist of Invincible’s batting line-up and went on to take three crucial wickets for just 1 run.

He bowled with great control and variation, using his pace to good effect against the Originals’ left-handers. He also showed a lot of maturity for a young bowler, bowling with great composure under pressure.

Sunil Narine: The mystery spinner

Sunil Narine was also impressive with the ball, taking three wickets for 17 runs. He used his mystery spin to great effect, bowling several googlies and sliders that the Original’s batsmen simply could not pick. He also showed great control with his line and length, making it very difficult for the Originals’ batsmen to score runs.
