    3.6 Wright makes swinging room outside leg and slashes a catch to deep third man. He backs away, the bowler digs it shorter and wider outside off. Wright is forced to reach out for the ball. He only ends up sending a thick outside edge straight down the throat of Dwarshuis 20/1
    5.3 Lyon is on a hat-trick! Length-ball offbreak, starts outside off from wide of the crease and breaks away. A crease-bound Dunk wafts at it and nicks behind to the keeper 31/3
    5.2 Nice Garry! KP slowly drags himself off the field. Just before this ball, deep midwicket had been moved straighter, and KP picks him out with a pull. Lyon shortens his length on middle, KP rocks back and middles a pull. But he hits it straight to the fielder. Credit to Lyon for holding his own after being smashed for a first-ball boundary 31/2
    10.4 short and bounces outside off, Maxwell tries to ramp it over the keeper. He can't get on top of the bounce. He only tickles a catch to the keeper. Maxwell exits for a breezy 28. The Stars needed a bigger score from him 76/4
    11.2 Lyon returns and strikes for a third time! Handscomb steps out, gets too close to the pitch, checks his shot and chips a catch to Silk at wide long-on 78/5
    19.5 Faulker has been dismissed for the first time this BBL season. He can't clear the big boundary on the leg side. #MCGissobig. Faulkner swings across the line and holes out to Abbott at deep midwicket 128/6
    19.6 Terrific finish from Brathwaite and he celebrates the run-out with the dab celebration. Off-stump yorker, dug out, the batsmen aim to pinch a quick single. Brathwaite runs in and throws the stumps down at the non-striker's end with an accurate over-arm throw 128/7
