Match Centre

Luke Wright is the Man of the match for his all round effort. Thanks from all of us for joining us today and have a good night. Do join us for the game on fourteenth.

A record crowd of 32,456 was treated to a good game today. It wasn't the result that they were hoping for, but they got their money's worth. Melbourne Stars escaped by the skin of their teeth. Quiney turned the game decisively in that Mcdermott over.

Art: "Don't think I have ever seen a team approach a T20 run-chase with more arrogance, selfishness and disrespect to an opponent that the Stars tonight. They must think that the Championship is theirs and all they need to do is show up." Well, they got themselves their sixth win. Will law of averages catch up with them?

Steketee to Hastings, SIX runs, where did this come from? Under pressure, with everything to lose, he proceeds to play a pull shot over cow corner for a six and seal the win for Stars
Steketee to Hastings, 2 runs, on the leg stump, Hastings turns it to fine-leg for a couple
Steketee to Quiney, OUT, there seems to be no denouement in the game as Quiney slices this high in the air and Lynn takes the catch at deep point. Amazing four ball coming up
Steketee to Quiney, 2 runs, comes forward and drives it to sweeper cover for a couple

Steketee to bowl the final over. This is going to be a real test for him. Either ways, he will be a wise man after the over
