After his team’s defeat to Manchester Originals, Birmingham Phoenix captain Moin Ali admitted the result was a “bad result” for his team.

The two teams now have everything to play in their final games, Phoenix away at the London Spirit on Tuesday and the Originals facing the Indomitable Oval at home on Wednesday.

The originals chose to hit and only Phil Salt 56 (38 balls) made 30 against an attack led by Benny Howell (three for 18) and Ken Richardson (two for 27).

They started their innings strong, hitting 50 of 38 balls to lose only to Laurie Evans, who skated past Richardson.

Salt’s thrust to 33 balls in half a century alarmed Henry Brooks, who dropped him on a short leg in the eighth and then was raised for sixty on three balls as the batting progressed straight through the 1940s to 50s.

Consistent Howell kept the brakes on as Wayne Madsen, Tristan Stubbs and Paul Walter all fell for a mid-speed encounter.

He sent all the skaters out before Salt’s attack was over with a lbw decision for Richardson, a batsman who left in High Dejon after being told that his call for a review, which could have been upheld, arrived too late.

At 113 balls for five of 82 balls, the Originals needed a late run and Tom Lamonby supplied them with 12 meatballs 26 including four, four and six.

The Phoenix chase started poorly, with Tom Hartley grabbing two wickets for the first four balls, and never recovering.

Hartley finished 4 to 22 as the Phoenix Challenge failed after just 74 balls.

He struck two instant blows with a hammer on the pursuit of the Phoenix. From the second turn ball, Miles Hammond was caught under extra cover. His fourth bowling leader, Moeen Ali, through a hard sweep.

Snead and Chris Benjamin were partially rebuilt with a stand of 45 balls by 31 balls but both fell into the three ball space. Benjamin ran out of Madsen’s direct hit and Smead lifted Paul Walter into his deep square leg.

Hartley is back to remove Brett de Oliveira, trapped in the depths, and the Ben Dwarshwish pot that left Phoenix in a heap at 63 for seven, doomed to a humiliating defeat and needing to raise himself very quickly for the vital visit to Spirit on Tuesday. .

What did they say …

Champion of the match, Tom Hartley: “I just tried to use the pitch as much as I really could.

“We saw the Southern Braves do that last year, they lost the first two games. Obviously we lost the first three but we had a good rhythm and the boys are really collaborating so there is no reason why we can’t. [go all the way]. “

Manchester Originals captain Laurie Evans: “Big win. It’s matches to be won all the way since we lost three out of three. The boys made me look good there with all the changes I’ve made in bowling. It’s been great. We thought we were a little below par. Maybe at first but it turns out It is a very competitive result.

“[On Tom Hartley] He’s great at doing that and it was so nice to see him pick up on those exaggerated bowling bonuses.

“[On Phil Salt] He played fantastically. Once again he showed how good he was and was brilliant in this tournament.

“We’ve been enjoying ourselves throughout this tournament, we have a great group here. This 100 is fantastic.”

Captain Birmingham Phoenix, Moeen Ali: “Obviously if you’re going well you can keep going. But if you lose points early [you need] Just to sit in the game and almost stay there. In their turn, they finished the game [above] 150 is really out of nowhere, so it could happen. Sit back and you’ll never know what could happen. We have some good players and we can win matches.

“It was just one of those days when we were poor. But we played really well throughout the tournament.

“We have to reorganize a thing or two and hopefully we’ll come back strong on Tuesday.”
