TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 8.85, 81 Mins)177/6
Fall of wickets: 1-2 (Rob Quiney, 0.5 ov), 2-17 (Scott Henry, 3.3 ov), 3-135 (Brad Hodge, 14.6 ov), 4-148 (Glenn Maxwell, 16.3 ov), 5-153 (David Hussey, 17.6 ov), 6-165 (Cameron White, 18.6 ov)
0.5 to RJ Quiney, edged and gone! Quiney's form has been a tad up and down and he fails yet again, it was on a length and there seemed to be a bit of swing away, the batsman was playing across, gets an edge that travels to a rather deep first slipper. 2/1
17.6 to DJ Hussey, short, pulled and caught! it was not quick enough, it was a bouncer and he had to drag it from outside the off, gets it only up to the deep square-leg fielder and it is easily taken. 153/5
14.6 to BJ Hodge, gone, caught at backward point! finally a breakthrough, it was shorter and wider outside the off, which isn't the best of balls to deliver when you have a short third-man and point inside the circle but then it is also one that gets him a wicket, guided straight to the fielder!. 135/3
16.3 to GJ Maxwell, gone, caught, finally! it was full again and he was trying to smack it yet again, does not get the timing and it loops up straight to Steven Smith and he does not miss it this time!. 148/4
18.6 to CL White, short of length and pulled straight into the hands of fine-leg! White was on the front foot and did not go back to play that hook, he gets a top edge that goes high and almost handsome...not so this time, the fielder catches it well. 165/6

TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 7.80)156/5
Fall of wickets: 1-74 (Daniel Smith, 8.6 ov), 2-110 (Steve O'Keefe, 14.4 ov), 3-123 (Moises Henriques, 15.5 ov), 4-124 (Brad Haddin, 16.1 ov), 5-133 (Jeevan Mendis, 17.2 ov)
17.2 to BMAJ Mendis, slower one and caught at long-on! it was a slower one and he was looking to smack it across, but the lack of pace makes it difficult for him and he lost his bottom hand off the bat too, easy catch to White. 133/5
16.1 to BJ Haddin, bowled him, first up! tremendous yorker from Malinga, it was quick, it was straight and Haddin only wanted to get the bat down in time to keep it out, but does not get anywhere close, the stumps are rattled and Stars are on their way to a third win in the competition. 124/4
8.6 to DLR Smith, slogged away to mid-wicket for an easy catch! slowed it up and Smith was trying to smack it over the top, does not get it off the middle of the bat and easily caught by the deep fielder. 74/1
15.5 to MC Henriques, and again, and this time he gets some bat on that one, it scoops up for the fielder at extra-cover to take a simple catch! he threw the ball up again and gets it to turn away that beat his stroke. 123/3
14.4 to SNJ O'Keefe, goes down the track and is stumped off the second attempt! was going down the track to smash it, misses it and he is stranded far too away from the crease before the keeper used two attempts to dislodge the bails. 110/2
