    Video caption: The Hundred: Sam Curran hit a 'blinder' six

    Brothers Sam Curran and Tom Curran both starred with the bat as Oval Invincibles fought back from a poor start to successfully chase 158 against Northern Superchargers.

    Invincibles were struggling at 21-3 and 88-4 before Sam Curran smashed a brilliant 39-ball 60, including five massive sixes. He was dropped on 46 by Adam Lyth, though.

    He was bowled by Dwayne Bravo to leave Invincibles still needing 21 to win from 11 balls, but Tom Curran smashed David Wiese for successive sixes as they Invincibles claimed their second win from three games.

    "It was great. We needed one of those games to play in and The Hundred needed it as well," Sam Curran told BBC Sport.

    "You can get confidence and energy for wins like that and we needed it.

    "I feel like an experienced player and with Sam Billings and Will Jacks missing with England Lions I did feel a little bit of extra pressure."

    Earlier, Superchargers, who have now lost two of their three games, made 157-7, with Adam Lyth smashing 79 off 33 balls, including the fastest half-century in The Hundred, from just 17 balls.

    Here's what also happened:

    • England and Invincibles opener Jason Roy saw his summer of poor form continue as he was dismissed without scoring from his second ball.
    • Invincibles spinner Sunil Narine had a hat-trick opportunity having dismissed Adam Hose and David Wiese in successive balls.
    • A brilliant Roelof van der Merwe caught Jack Haynes to leave Invincibles needing six runs from six balls and they got over the line when Faf du Plessis dropped Tom Curran and Invincibles got back for two to win with three balls to spare.

    Two awful drops, from Lyth and Faf, have cost the Superchargers. If want drama in The Hundred, The Oval is the place to be.

    Great game and well played for the Oval Invincibles. You thought they were out of it at the start of the innings but they bowled beautifully and now batted beautifully too.

  5. Invincibles win by three wickets

    The Curran brothers have combined to drag Invincibles over the line there.

    Tom Curran has a huge smile on his face as he shakes hands with his batting partner Danny Briggs.

    The Invincibles squeeze home with three balls to spare!

  6. Tom Curran dropped on 16!

    Oh my! Tom Curran skews a shot into the air but Faf du Plessis of all people spills a routine catch.

    That is an absolute speccy! Take a bow! What a catch that is from van der Merwe

  12. WICKET

    Haynes c van der Merwe b Wiese 2 (Invincibles 152-7)


    Jack Haynes thinks he has powered this away for four but Roelof van der Merwe has dived full stretch to his right and plucked the ball out of mid-air!

    That was special.

  13. Invincibles 151-6

    And again! Tom Curran makes it back-to-back sixes and the Invincibles need just seven runs to win!

  14. Invincibles 145-6

    Hold on there, the Invincibles are not done yet. Tom Curran has just launched David Wiese back over his head for six!

  16. WICKET

    Sam Curran b Bravo 60 (Invincibles 137-6)

    Bowled him! The Superchargers turn to Dwayne Bravo and he gets the crucial wicket of Sam Curran.

    It is a slower ball that deceives Curran and the ball clips the top of his stumps as he attempts another slog, with Bravo doing a little jog in celebration.

    The game just keeps swinging from one way to the other!

  17. Invincibles 135-5

    Tom Curran joins his brother in the middle and takes a single to bring Sam on strike - and this is a fantastic shot!

    Rashid is a touch short but Sam Curran is on it in a flash and almost dismissively pulls the ball away for four.

    23 runs needed from 15 balls!

  18. WICKET

    Cartwright c van de Merwe b Rashid 5 (Invincibles 130-5)

    The game turns yet again!

    Hilton Cartwright tries to do a 'Sam Curran' and launch the ball away for six but he doesn't get enough on it and Roelof van der Merwe takes a really smart catch on the straight boundary.

  19. 50 for Sam Curran

    Salt, meet wounds.

    Sam Curran smashes the next delivery away for another massive six to bring up his half-century!

    He is almost single-handedly dragging the Invincibles to victory here.

  20. Curran dropped on 46

    Oh no, Adam Lyth!

    Sam Curran should be out as he launches the ball high into the air, but Lyth makes an absolute hash of the catch as the ball spills out of his hands and he can't claim at the second attempt despite a desperate dive.
