Tom Curran

Tom Curran was the hero for Oval Invincibles as they won the Men’s Hundred final against Manchester Originals at Lord’s on Sunday. The all-rounder smashed an unbeaten 67 off 34 balls to help his team post a total of 161 for 5 and then took 1 for 25 with the ball to restrict the Originals to 147 for 6.

Invincibles were in trouble at 34 for 5 after being put into bat, but Curran and Jimmy Neesham put on an unbeaten partnership of 127 to turn the tide. Curran hit five sixes and four fours in his innings, and Neesham also contributed 57 not out.

In reply, the Originals got off to a good start, but they lost wickets at regular intervals and were never able to get close to the target. Will Jacks’ bowling was particularly impressive, and he dismissed Laurie Evans and Paul Walter to generate pressure.

The win is Invincibles’ first title in the Men’s Hundred, and it is a fitting reward for a team that has been the most consistent throughout the tournament. Curran was named Player of the Match for his all-round performance, and he will be hoping to continue his fine form in the upcoming T20 Blast.

Curran’s unbeaten 67 off 34 balls: This was a truly destructive innings, and it helped Invincibles to post a competitive total. Curran hit five sixes and four fours, and he took the game away from the Originals.
