So the Stars have done it, they've earned themselves a finals' spot on the back of three consecutive wins to finish the regular season.

The match was set up by man of the match Clint McKay, who took 3 for 17 off his four overs, and backed up well by fellow seamers Jackson Bird and James Faulkner. The Strikers really batted themselves out of the tournament with a poor showing tonight.

The Stars will head west to face the Scorchers on Saturday night, while the Hurricanes will host the Sixers on Sunday night in Hobart. Thanks for your company tonight, good night.
