Melbourne Stars innings
  • Rain stopped play: 29/0 off 2 overs, 15 overs lost
  • After the rain delay the umpires deemed that the conditions were fit for a resumption of play to allow for the minimum duration for a definite result of five overs for the second innings. The revised target was 20 in 5 overs and because Melbourne Stars had already passed that score the match was over. The match referee incorrectly sent the players out to face one more ball (a dot ball bowled by Cartwright to Quiney). Cricket Australia later admitted the error and the extra ball was expunged as it affected the net run rate.
  • Par score of 6 off 2 overs used to calculate the result margin
