London Spirit continued their great run this season with the third victory on the trot. They sit at the top of the table with six points to their credit. Eoin Morgan’s men defeated the defending champions Southern Brave by 9 runs in their most recent fixture.
Glenn Maxwell smashed 34 off 21 while Daniel Bell-Drummond top scored for Spirit with 46 off 33. Kieron Pollard added 26 off 20 at the back end as they posted 147/6. Defending the target, they sent both the Brave openers back for 4 runs. Jordan Thompson claimed 2 for 32 and defended 19 runs off the final set of five.
