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)

Bollinger to Quiney, SIX, short ball on the off stump line. A slower ball. Quiney spots it and immediately shifts the weight onto the backfoot and pulls it away behind square for a maximum. A guy probably supporting the Sixers, wearing magenta, grabs the catch with both the hands

Melbourne Stars 10/0   RJ Quiney 7* (5b 1x6)   DE Bollinger 0.2-0-7-0

Abbott to Hussey, SIX, and this is the sort of thing that David Hussey is popular for. He comes down the track and lofts it over long-off for a six

Melbourne Stars 72/2   DJ Hussey 23* (14b 2x4 1x6)   SA Abbott 1-0-12-0

Bollinger to Hussey, SIX, short ball on the middle stump. Hussey makes room and lofts it over square-leg for another six. He is getting into that sort of mode now

Melbourne Stars 79/2   DJ Hussey 29* (15b 2x4 2x6)   DE Bollinger 2.2-0-19-1

Abbott to Hussey, SIX, fuller ball outside the off stump. Hussey lofts it over long-off for a six his third

Melbourne Stars 98/4   DJ Hussey 46* (23b 3x4 3x6)   SA Abbott 1.3-0-24-0

Edwards to Wright, SIX, short ball outside the off stump. Wright shows the touch artistry he has got as he moves across and slices it ten rows into the lower tier at third-man boundary. Delicate shot that

Melbourne Stars 131/6   LJ Wright 16* (13b 1x4 1x6)   FH Edwards 2.3-0-20-0
