Delray Rawlins’s Southern Brave will face Birmingham Phoenix in the final of the inaugural The Hundred at Lord’s tomorrow.

The Brave advanced to the final after thrashing Trent Rockets by seven wickets in today’s men's Hundred eliminator at Kia Oval, in which Rawlins did not feature in.

Tymal Mills and George Garton claimed three for eight and three for 18 as the Rockets were skittled out for 96 in 91 balls after being sent in.

Top order batsman Paul Stirling (31) and captain James Vince (45 not out), then led the chase as the Brave reached their target off 68 balls to avenge a nine-wicket defeat against their opponents in their opening match of the competition last month.

The Phoenix topped the table in the group stage.

However, the Brave are on a six-match winning streak and arguably go in tomorrow’s final as favourites.

The Brave can potentially achieve a remarkable double as their women's side face Oval Invincibles in the final.

Rawlins, the Bermuda and Sussex all-rounder, has not played since the second of two straight losses to open the tournament.

However, he still would be eligible for an equal share of the £150,000 prize money to the winners or £75,000 for the runners-up.
