The Oval Invincibles were crowned the inaugural winners of the Women’s Hundred following a desperate Southern Brave collapse at Lord’s.

The Invincibles triumphed by 48 runs, with Brave slumping to 14 for six before being bowled out for 73, the lowest score of the competition, as they chased 122 for victory.

Marizanne Kapp, who starred with bat and ball in Friday’s eliminator victory over Birmingham Phoenix, took centre stage again, striking 26 off 14 balls before taking four wickets for nine runs to sink the pre-match favourites.

Anya Shrubsole’s Brave topped the league stage with seven wins and just one defeat, but the loss of early wickets proved too much to come back from. It was an occasion to forget for England internationals Danni Wyatt and Sophia Dunkley, with South African Kapp removing both for ducks.
