Melbourne Stars win by 10 wins in a brilliant defensive effort on a slow pitch. Nic Maddinson the story of the day with the ball, some brilliant captaincy from Glenn Maxwell, but the Perth Scorchers will need a long, hard look at themselves. They have had an awful travel schedule, but have produced two awful batting displays in the last few days. They need to pull it together to avoid slipping out of the finals. The Stars, meanwhile, are flying high.

James: "Every single over after the powerplay was spin. The Stars knew their strategy, and got it right."

Waseem: "This is brave captaincy. I mean how many times you have seen spinners and part-timers bowling during complete last 10 overs of T20 innings."

I'll wrap things up there for this match. You can head over and follow all the action from the second game of the day: the Sydney derby. I'll be back tomorrow, thanks for joining us. see you soon

Maddinson to Richardson, 1 run, a big swing, takes the toe end into the off side

Maddinson to Fawad Ahmed, 1 run, pulled down the ground, straight to long-on. That's the game

Fawad Ahmed has hit a few sixes this season...needs two to force a Super Over!

Maddinson to Kelly, OUT, that's another for Maddinson! Holds his nerve, fires it between the inside edge and the pads as he comes down the pitch. A little juggle from Gotch, but it's all good

Maddinson to Kelly, FOUR runs, finds the boundary! Clubbed from outside off and splits the gap perfectly between long-on and deep midwicket

Maddinson to Richardson, 1 run, short and very slow, almost dips under Richardson's bat, he swipes across the line

Maddinson to Kelly, 1 run, dragged down short, pulled to deep midwicket

So it's down to 19 needed off the last over. It's been a poor chase from the Scorchers, but superb stuff from the Stars. Who'd have thought Maddinson would be in this position?
