The Stars win by 94 runs. How did that happen? The Stars get themselves into a semi-final against the Hurricanes on Thursday. The Sixers now have to travel to Melbourne to face the Renegades at Marvel Stadium on Friday because that 94-run defeat has dented their net run-rate so badly that they have finished third on the table behind the Renegades! That is the Sixers lowest score in BBL history. Just a stunning result for so many reasons. The Stars were 5 for 116 with 25 balls left in their batting innings and Glenn Maxwell changed the game with an innings of epic proportions. Glenn Maxwell is the Player of the Match for his 82 off 43 balls. He also took the key wicket of Moises Henriques and two excellent catches, one a stunner. The Stars head to Hobart with confidence. The Sixers must regroup after that. And they lose Tom Curran as he heads to the West Indies for England ODI duty. Thanks for your company from the MCG. Join us on Thursday from Hobart. Until then, goodbye.
Melwyn: "The Stars have not only got themselves into the final but they've also done their cross town rivals a bigger favour by denying the sixers a home semi final."
Can the Pope provide a miracle?
Jose Cyriac: "I was planning to book tickets for the Semi Final @ SCG, hope the Sixers score 108 at least from here, just hoping against the hope." It's all on the GOAT
Much for the GOAT to do
JP: "Can't give up on SS yet. The GOAT still in the shed."
Rob: "Does it help the stars in any way to win by a big margin? If not, why are they spoiling my best laid plans?" It only affects the Sixers
Stephen Burns: "With all teams being so inconsistent, and Hobart stumbling recently, you cannot rule out any of the 4 teams remaining to win the final."
