Southern Brave defeated Trent Rockets by seven wickets to set up a final at Lord's against Birmingham Phoenix on Saturday.

The Brave's formidable attack bowled out the Rockets for 96 in just over 91 balls.

George Garton was able to remove the Rockets' top three, while Tymal Mills took three wickets, Chris Jordan and Craig Overton had two each.

This total was not enough. Brave won with 32 balls, even though Quinton de Kock lost for six.

The Brave have won six consecutive matches and will now be in the final. It starts at 18:30 BST.

They could complete the double, with their women's team facing Oval Invincibles at 15:00.

Garton too good to Rockets' Big Three

Although the entire Brave bowling performance was outstanding, it was Garton from Brighton, aged 24, who made the most impact.

Although the Rockets were convincing winners when the teams met at the beginning of the competition they could have won if Garton had removed the top three, but that was not likely.

The top three are arguably the most talented in the competition. They include Alex Hales and Dawid Malan, as well as D'Arcy short - three international players. Malan is the number one Twenty20 batsman.

Garton, left-arm pacebower, was able to bowl at a lively pace with the new ball in his hand. He also found some movement and was precise. Malan, Hales, and Short didn't have an answer.

Ball 11: 15-1. Malan left-handed batter has a good pace and accuracy. Malan also finds the edge of his bat with a little extra bounce. De Kock is the wicketkeeper.

Ball 15: 18-2. This time, the ball is slower. Hales attempts to force it away aggressively, but only gets a thin edge. Garton celebrates the victory.

Ball 25: 31-4. This time, the gap is shorter from Garton and Australian Short.

Garton stated to Sky Sports that "we had something to prove after the first game against them," he said.

"That's my job, get up high and be aggressive, then put them on their back foot."

Are Brave the favorite against Phoenix?

After being released from England, Garton, Mills and Jordan returned to the side. They are an international bowling attack of high quality. Only Garton has yet to represent England, but he has played in white-ball teams.

Mills was able to finish with impressive figures of 3-8 out of 16 balls, thanks to his combination of speed and slower balls.

De Kock was unsuccessful, but James Vince, captain, finished with 45 runs and Paul Stirling, opener hit 31.

Now, the focus turns to Saturday's showpiece final against Birmingham Phoenix.

Although the Phoenix won the group stage, the Phoenix was the top table finisher, but the Brave are likely to be favourites due to their form.

Carlos Brathwaite, Manchester Originals' captain, said on BBC Sounds that "batter wins you games and bowling win you tournaments."

They have a bowling team that is capable of winning this tournament. Tymal Mills, Chris Jordan and James Vince are the bankers. Southern Brave is my favorite.
