Michael Beer302016.6652000
0.4 to RJ Quiney, beats him with an arm-ball! Quiney comes forward in an attempt to defend it and the ball spins across him. He has dragged his backfoot too far and Ronchi whips the bails off. 8/1
Nathan Rimmington4045111.2551300
19.2 to MS Wade, full-toss on the leg stump. Wade slogs it straight into the hands of Marsh at long-on. The final will be in Perth even if Rimmington endures a horror over from here on. 154/8
Nathan Coulter-Nile302809.3373110
Ben Edmondson413228.00126100
10.2 to LJ Wright, slower ball outside the off stump. Wright slogs it straight into the hands of North at midwicket. 88/3
10.3 to DJ Hussey, the best bat of the Stars is gone, first ball. He is looking to drive a fuller ball and gets an outside edge. Ronchi puts in a sprawling dive to his right and takes the catch. 88/4
Brad Hogg401724.25100000
7.6 to JP Faulkner, fuller ball outside the off stump. Faulkner goes for the slog sweep and holes out to deep midwicket. Marsh takes the catch and signals to the crowd. He wants them all keyed up. 75/2
15.5 to GJ Bailey, fuller ball on the off stump. Bailey makes room and looks to slice it. He misses the ball and Hogg goes up in celebration. Ronchi blocks his celebratory run. 113/7
Mitchell Marsh201728.5041110
12.5 to AC Voges, short ball on the leg stump. Voges can't get the pull going and edges it to short fine-leg. Rimmington takes the catch and Stars would need a miracle to win it from here. 95/5
14.4 to CL White, ok, Marsh will give ten runs to take the wicket of White, any day. Fuller ball on the middle stump. White lofts it to long-on where Katich takes the catch. 108/6
