That's all from us at ESPNcricinfo tonight. On behalf of Ranjith P and Shashank Kishore, this is Sreshth Shah signing off. See you tomorrow for more BBL action!

9.30pm Experience trumps flair tonight as Siddle keeps cool to finish the game magnificently for Strikers. They remain undefeated as they jump to first. This was also Stars' first defeat. Fireworks at the stadium - a beautiful sight with the night sky in the background. Maxwell, Stoinis and Handscomb kept Stars in the hunt all evening but Rashid and Siddle always kept Strikers ahead of the eight-ball. Don't forget Jono Wells' 68 in the first innings. He is the Man of the Match.. "I was nervous after dropping Maxi," he says, "but credit to Siddle for keeping calm at the death."

Amit Kumar: "Ifs and Buts - Steyn would have been a better swinger choice than Zampa, isnt it.."

Siddle to Zampa, no run, Strikers win by four runs Yorker on leg, and padded away to short fine leg.

Can the new man hit a six a win it for Stars? Coulter-Nile will be at the non-striker's for the final ball. Surely Siddle doesn't need a reminder about "no no-balls, no wides." Zampa will take strike

Jay: "B Dunk 16 balls for just 17 runs cost stars this match!!"
