A half-century from opening batsman Will Jacks coupled with Sam Curran’s hat-trick of wickets helped the Oval Invincibles beat London Spirit in The Hundred.

A record crowd of 27,448 spectators flocked to Lord’s as a good all-round performance saw the Invincibles become the first visiting team to chase down a target at the home of cricket this season, allowing them to inflict the second defeat of the competition on London Spirit.

It pushes them into the top three as the men’s standings tighten up with competition to make it through to the latter stages intensifying.

After Jacks, who hit seven boundaries and a pair of sixes for 54 off of 38 balls, was caught by Jordan Thompson, Riley Roussouw (24) and Tom Curran (19*) helped see the Invincibles home.
