Big Bash League, Melbourne Stars v Sydney Sixers at Melbourne, Dec 21, 2012
Melbourne Stars won by 21 runs
21 December 2012 - night match (20-over match)

Lee to Quiney, OUT, edged and gone! Quiney's form has been a tad up and down and he fails yet again, it was on a length and there seemed to be a bit of swing away, the batsman was playing across, gets an edge that travels to a rather deep first slipper

RJ Quiney c DLR Smith b Lee 0 (3m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Melbourne Stars 2/1   SO Henry 1* (2b)   B Lee 0.5-0-1-1

O'Keefe to Henry, OUT, appeal for a run-out here and gone! gone, run-out, the batsman pulls it away to the leg-side and wants to take a single, Hodge does not and sends him back, Henriques sends a quick, flat throw back to the keeper who whips the bails off before the debutant can get back...two down!

SO Henry run out 6 (14m 11b 0x4 0x6) SR: 54.54

Melbourne Stars 17/2   BJ Hodge 8* (7b 1x4)   SNJ O'Keefe 1.3-0-4-0

Moran to Hodge, OUT, gone, caught at backward point! finally a breakthrough, it was shorter and wider outside the off, which isn't the best of balls to deliver when you have a short third-man and point inside the circle but then it is also one that gets him a wicket, guided straight to the fielder!

BJ Hodge c Narine b Moran 51 (53m 33b 4x4 1x6) SR: 154.54

Melbourne Stars 135/3   GJ Maxwell 72* (44b 6x4 2x6)   IA Moran 1-0-8-1

Moran to Maxwell, OUT, gone, caught, finally! it was full again and he was trying to smack it yet again, does not get the timing and it loops up straight to Steven Smith and he does not miss it this time!

GJ Maxwell c SPD Smith b Moran 82 (49m 50b 6x4 3x6) SR: 164.00

Melbourne Stars 148/4   DJ Hussey 3* (3b)   IA Moran 1.3-0-15-2

Lee to Hussey, OUT, short, pulled and caught! it was not quick enough, it was a bouncer and he had to drag it from outside the off, gets it only up to the deep square-leg fielder and it is easily taken

DJ Hussey c Thornely b Lee 7 (13m 10b 0x4 0x6) SR: 70.00

Melbourne Stars 153/5   CL White 1* (2b)   B Lee 3-0-13-2

Moran to White, OUT, short of length and pulled straight into the hands of fine-leg! White was on the front foot and did not go back to play that hook, he gets a top edge that goes high and almost handsome...not so this time, the fielder catches it well

CL White c Feldman b Moran 10 (12m 6b 0x4 1x6) SR: 166.66

Melbourne Stars 165/6   JP Faulkner 2* (2b)   IA Moran 3-0-30-3
