Till Faulkner was around, Melbourne Stars seemed to be in with a fair chance. The wickets of Luke Wright and David Hussey off successive balls by Edmondson tightened the grip of Perth Scorchers on the match. Perth Scorchers have booked themselves a spot in the Champions League with the win. If Wade was sent in at a position higher than his eventual eighth, things might have been different for the Stars
