Nottingham's Trent Rockets have clinched victory in The Hundred men's cricket final - the first time the team have won the tournament.

The Rockets won by 2 wickets with just 2 balls remaining in a nail-biting finale.

Manchester Originals were put in to bat first and posted a reasonably low score of 120/9, largely thanks to the bowling of Rockets' Sam Cook, who took four wickets for just 18 runs.

Samit Patel also had a big say on Originals' low total, taking three wickets.

But there was still work to be done and the final could have gone either way.

Rockets' chase wasn't straight forward, in fact it looked like they would fall just short. Dawid Malan hit 19 off 18 balls with Kohler-Cadmore getting 18 from 18.

But with five balls to go, Rockets needed 11 runs and it looked like the chance had gone - but Captain Lewis Gregory would have the final say.

A wonderful six, four and a single sealed victory for the delighted Rockets. 

It's just rewards for a side who missed out on the final in last year's first edition, losing in the eliminator to Southern Brave and finished top of this year's group stage.
