    Chris Benjamin on Sky Sports: "I was very excited and a bit amazed that I got the call up, its been a whirlwind last couple of weeks. They are an incredible group of guys and it's an incredible learning opportunity. And to get a chance to play and get the team over the line was incredible.

    "I thought I'd get myself in and try and take on a bowler. Fortunately one or two shots came off and we got over the line."

    On his message to kids watching the game: "Youngsters, keep dreaming big and keep working hard."

    But the star of the show was the unknown Chris Benjamin who made his professional debut just FIVE days ago.

    The 22-year-old from South Africa smashed 24 from 15 balls just when his team needed him.

    Match Hero Zak Crawley: "I was pleased with how I played, it's always nice to get runs. But I could've done with a few more at the end to get us a higher total and then we could have won the game.

    "It was great to have a big crowd in but it was tough at times! But hopefully we can have something similar when we play our home games.

    "Adam Milne was excellent, I think he could be wearing this cap really. But all our bowlers did really well.

    "How can you not enjoy this cricket? I'm just trying to enjoy as much of it as I can."

    It's remarkable that Chris Benjamin has only played two first class games. To win a game like that in a high pressure situation, in front of an excited home crowd, is incredible.

    Phoenix 144-7

    Adam Milne is the new batter in and he drags it through leg side for four and Birmingham Phoenix win by three wickets with two balls remaining.

    What an enthralling game and let's take a moment to appreciate that spectacular innings by Chris Benjamin.

    That's some way to announce yourself on the big stage!

    Is there another twist in the tale?!

    Cooke c Bopara b Amir 5 (Phoenix 144-7)

    The scores are level but Cooke top edges the ball and Ravi Bopara takes a simple grab.

  16. Phoenix 143-6

    Four down the ground for Chris Benjamin! Two fielders dive despairingly but can't stop it.

    He made his professional debut five days ago for Warwickshire. Yes, you read that right.

  17. Phoenix 139-6

    Chris Cooke is in on the act as he slices Chris Wood for four!

    Phoenix are one shot away from victory - they need 6 from 7 balls.

    That's swung the game well back in Birmingham's favour.

  19. Phoenix 134-6

    Phoenix need 11 from 10 balls

    Swatted for six!!

    I didn't know who Chris Benjamin was a few hours ago. I most certainly do now, as do 12,137 fans at Edgbaston.
