Will Smeed hit the first ever hundred in The Hundred as last year's final was replayed at Edgbaston.
Smeed socked an unbeaten 101 (50 balls) to lift his side to 176 for four. The Brave replied with a paltry 123 all out as Henry Brookes enjoyed a dream debut on the ground he has always called home.
The Edgbaston product took five for 25 and two excellent catches as Phoenix banked their first victory of the campaign and handed James Vince’s side their first defeat in nine matches.
