Big Bash League, Melbourne Stars v Sydney Thunder at Melbourne, Dec 17, 2011
Sydney Thunder won by 6 wickets (with 6 balls remaining)
17 December 2011 - night match (20-over match)

Edwards to Bailey, FOUR, fuller ball on the off stump. Bailey falls across and flicks it over square-leg to get off the mark with a boundary

Melbourne Stars 16/1   GJ Bailey 4* (1b 1x4)   FH Edwards 0.2-0-6-0

Edwards to Wade, FOUR, fuller ball and width outside the off stump. Wade just needs to get the meat of his on it. He does exactly that as he plays a lofted cover drive for his first boundary

Melbourne Stars 21/1   MS Wade 7* (5b 1x4)   FH Edwards 0.5-0-10-0

Bollinger to Bailey, FOUR, short ball again. This time Bailey gets it right as he pulls the ball to deep midwicket for a boundary

Melbourne Stars 25/1   GJ Bailey 8* (7b 2x4)   DE Bollinger 1.4-0-11-1

Coyte to Bailey, FOUR, short ball outside the off stump. Bailey widens the gap between his legs and lofts it over mid-off for a boundary. Double-handed forehand shot it looked like. A wild card to Bailey for the Australian Open?

Melbourne Stars 37/1   GJ Bailey 14* (14b 3x4)   SJ Coyte 0.5-0-7-0

Coyte to Hussey, FOUR, boundary off the outside edge. It was a catch to Smith if he had gone for it with both the hands. He goes for it with his left hand. It looked like wipers on the windshield of a car as he was going for the catch

Melbourne Stars 52/2   DJ Hussey 5* (4b 1x4)   SJ Coyte 1.4-0-14-0

Coyte to Hussey, FOUR, another boundary off the outside edge to third-man for a boundary

Melbourne Stars 56/2   DJ Hussey 9* (6b 2x4)   SJ Coyte 2-0-18-0

Abbott to Hussey, FOUR, fuller ball outside the off stump. Hussey looks for the lofted shot and gets an outside edge to third-man for a boundary

Melbourne Stars 90/4   DJ Hussey 38* (21b 3x4 2x6)   SA Abbott 1.1-0-16-0

Coyte to Wright, FOUR, fuller ball outside the off stump. Wright's region this as he slices it over the backward point fielder for what is the first boundary in four overs

Melbourne Stars 124/6   LJ Wright 10* (9b 1x4)   SJ Coyte 3.4-0-26-2

Edwards to Wright, FOUR, full-toss on the leg stump. Wright was waiting for it as he makes rooms and smashes it to deep midwicket for a boundary. Deals with me and Sushant in two strokes then

Melbourne Stars 137/6   LJ Wright 21* (15b 2x4 1x6)   FH Edwards 3-0-26-0

Edwards to Wright, FOUR, slower ball on the middle stump. Wright comes down the track and creams the ball past covers for a boundary

Melbourne Stars 152/7   LJ Wright 27* (19b 3x4 1x6)   FH Edwards 3.5-0-34-0
