Big Bash League

Sydney Sixers v Melbourne Stars

Sydney Sixers won by 2 runs

1.6

Thornely to Wade, OUT, Wade continues to confound a lot of people with his form. He gets, what can be called as a tracker and he pulls it straight into the hands of Smith at midwicket

MS Wade c Smith b Thornely 1 (7m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Melbourne Stars 12/1   RJ Quiney 10* (10b 2x4)   DJ Thornely 1-0-5-1

2.6

Lee to Quiney, OUT, short on the middle stump. Invitation enough for Quiney to go for the pull shot. Go, he does, but doesn't get as much bat on the ball as he wants and holes out to Henriques at deep midwicket. Lee has his arms up in celebration

RJ Quiney c Henriques b Lee 14 (11m 15b 3x4 0x6) SR: 93.33

Melbourne Stars 18/2   GJ Bailey 1* (1b)   B Lee 2-0-11-1

10.3

Smith to Bailey, OUT, flighted ball on the middle stump. Bailey goes for the lofted but doesn't clear the fielder at long-on. Instead Lumb takes a simple catch to send Bailey on his way

GJ Bailey c Lumb b Smith 33 (33m 25b 3x4 0x6) SR: 132.00

Melbourne Stars 77/3   DJ Hussey 27* (21b 2x4 1x6)   SPD Smith 0.3-0-2-1

11.2

MacGill to White, OUT, fuller ball on the middle stump. White goes for his release stroke, the loft over long-off. He seems to have misjudged the length of the ball as he doesn't get enough distance. Lee running in from long-off pulls off a corker and sets off to congratulate MacGill

CL White c Lee b MacGill 3 (3m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 75.00

Melbourne Stars 81/4   DJ Hussey 27* (22b 2x4 1x6)   SCG MacGill 2.2-0-15-1

14.6

Smith to Voges, 1 run, OUT, fuller on the off stump. Voges lofts it over the bowler's head and wants a couple. Hussey seemed to be in danger from the moment he turned for the second and he is out by at least a couple of feet

DJ Hussey run out 42 (45m 30b 5x4 1x6) SR: 140.00

Melbourne Stars 114/4   AC Voges 18* (14b 2x4)   SPD Smith 3-0-18-1

16.2

Smith to Wright, OUT, fuller ball outside the off stump. Wright drag flicks it straight into the hands of Lumb at wide long-on. Sixers are surely ahead in the race to get two points from this game

LJ Wright c Lumb b Smith 9 (7m 6b 1x4 0x6) SR: 150.00

Melbourne Stars 128/6   AC Voges 22* (16b 2x4)   SPD Smith 3.2-0-20-2

17.5

Thornely to Voges, 1 run, OUT, fuller ball on the middle stump. Voges turns it to deep square-leg and wants a couple. He slips at the bowlers end and is well short of the throw by Maddinson

AC Voges run out 31 (26m 22b 3x4 0x6) SR: 140.90

Melbourne Stars 140/7   JP Faulkner 3* (3b)   DJ Thornely 3.5-0-28-1

18.6

Starc to Faulkner, OUT, not quite so. Faulkner lofts a fuller ball to Smith at long-on. Stars need 15 runs off the final over to pull off a heist here

JP Faulkner c Smith b Starc 13 (11m 8b 2x4 0x6) SR: 162.50

Melbourne Stars 152/8   CP Simpson 2* (2b)   MA Starc 3-0-28-1
