Hobart Hurricanes win by 59 runs with a very convincing performance. It centered around D'Arcy Short's unbeaten 96 and then the Hurricanes impressive all-round attack was far too good for a Melbourne Stars side without a host of key names. The Hurricanes, a team that appears to have all bases covered, extend their lead at the top of the table while the Stars are heading south. That's all for today, we'll be back tomorrow for the ODI between Australia and India from Adelaide then the BBL resumes on Wednesday. For now, from Andrew McGlashan, it's goodnight.

Archer to Bowe, OUT, cleaned him up! At that's a good way to finish things. A yorker from Archer...well, actually, Bowes has smashed the stumps himself as he's gone so far back in his crease.

Meredith to Bird, OUT, caught at long leg...another for Meredith as he bangs in a short ball at 145kph, Bird hooks and gets a top edge, neatly taken coming in by Archer

Meredith to Merlo, OUT, direct hit from Rose! Superb piece of work. Was given into the covers, a sliding save and he throws while kneeling on the ground with one-and-a-half stumps to aim at
