Perth Scorchers v Melbourne Stars

Perth Scorchers won by 11 runs

0.4

Beer to Quiney, OUT, beats him with an arm-ball! Quiney comes forward in an attempt to defend it and the ball spins across him. He has dragged his backfoot too far and Ronchi whips the bails off

RJ Quiney st †Ronchi b Beer 8 (3m 4b 2x4 0x6) SR: 200.00

Melbourne Stars 8/1   LJ Wright 0* (0b)   MA Beer 0.4-0-8-1

7.6

Hogg to Faulkner, OUT, fuller ball outside the off stump. Faulkner goes for the slog sweep and holes out to deep midwicket. Marsh takes the catch and signals to the crowd. He wants them all keyed up

JP Faulkner c Marsh b Hogg 38 (32m 27b 5x4 0x6) SR: 140.74

Melbourne Stars 75/2   LJ Wright 28* (17b 3x4 1x6)   GB Hogg 1-0-6-1

Edmondson to Hussey, OUT, the best bat of the Stars is gone, first ball. He is looking to drive a fuller ball and gets an outside edge. Ronchi puts in a sprawling dive to his right and takes the catch

Marsh to Voges, OUT, short ball on the leg stump. Voges can't get the pull going and edges it to short fine-leg. Rimmington takes the catch and Stars would need a miracle to win it from here

Melbourne Stars 95/5   CL White 3* (6b)   MR Marsh 0.5-0-4-1

Marsh to White, OUT, ok, Marsh will give ten runs to take the wicket of White, any day. Fuller ball on the middle stump. White lofts it to long-on where Katich takes the catch

Melbourne Stars 108/6   GJ Bailey 2* (3b)   MR Marsh 1.4-0-15-2

GJ Bailey b Hogg 4 (12m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 57.14

Melbourne Stars 113/7   MS Wade 3* (3b)   GB Hogg 3.5-0-17-2
