Melbourne Stars won by 11 runs. Duckworth Lewis came into play as the rain didn't stop. Thats it from all of us here and do join us for the Sydney Derby tomorrow

Ok thats it. the rain continue to play truant. The match has been called off by the umpires

Umpire Simon Fry says that the situation doesn't look too promising and he reckons that it will take at least 10 minutes to get the playing area ready after the rain stops. He says the players run the risk of getting injured if they continued to play. Stay glued for more from the ground

The rain has gotten heavier now. We can have a result if the game doesn't resume as five overs have been bowled. At this stage, Stars are the one's with the advantage
