Big Bash League

Melbourne Stars v Melbourne Renegades

Melbourne Stars won by 11 runs (D/L method)

3.5

Harwood to Wright, OUT, Afridi makes up for the misfield in the Nannes over. Harwood bowls it short outside the off stump. Wright comes forward and drives it to cover. Afridi dives forward and takes the catch. As usual, the arms are aloft after taking the catch

LJ Wright c Shahid Afridi b Harwood 25 (20m 16b 5x4 0x6) SR: 156.25

Melbourne Stars 40/1   RJ Quiney 12* (7b 1x6)   SM Harwood 0.5-0-7-1

4.5

Tait to White, OUT, The bad luck combined with poor batting continues for White. Tait pitches it short on the leg stump and White looks to glance it away. He got a glove on it and the umpire doesn't give it. However on consultation with the third umpire, he changes the decision and sends White on his way. Poor tournament for him

CL White c †Manou b Tait 1 (6m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 20.00

Melbourne Stars 44/2   RJ Quiney 14* (9b 1x6)   SW Tait 1.5-0-13-1

5.4

Nannes to Quiney, OUT, short ball on the leg stump. Nannes cut some pace off it as he bowled it. Quiney doesn't pick it and goes for the pull. He top edges it to deep square-leg where Finch takes the catch easily. Not a shot to play when your team is two down for forty four

RJ Quiney c Finch b Nannes 14 (31m 13b 0x4 1x6) SR: 107.69

Melbourne Stars 44/3   DJ Hussey 0* (1b)   DP Nannes 1.4-0-12-1

Shahid Afridi to Bailey, OUT, and the partnership is broken. Afridi bowls a quicker one on the middle stump. Bailey looks to cut and is beaten. The ball hits the flap of the front pad and Manou fumbles with his take. Bailey's momentum carries him forward and Manou is quick to whip the bails off. He is out either way and is adjudged LBW

GJ Bailey lbw b Shahid Afridi 24 (38m 21b 2x4 0x6) SR: 114.28

Melbourne Stars 124/4   DJ Hussey 51* (40b 4x4 1x6)   Shahid Afridi 3.2-0-19-1

Shahid Afridi to Hussey, OUT, Hussey goes! Afridi pitches it short and Hussey goes for the cut shot. McDonald dives to his left and takes the catch. Stars are slipping at a crucial moment

DJ Hussey c McDonald b Shahid Afridi 51 (45m 42b 4x4 1x6) SR: 121.42

Melbourne Stars 125/5   MS Wade 1* (1b)   Shahid Afridi 3.5-0-20-2
