Fall of wickets: 1-5 (William Bosisto, 0.4 ov), 2-9 (Michael Klinger, 2.6 ov), 3-10 (Ashton Turner, 3.5 ov), 4-93 (Adam Voges, 14.4 ov), 5-111 (Hilton Cartwright, 17.2 ov), 6-125 (David Willey, 18.3 ov)
0.4 to WG Bosisto, Faulkner responds with a wicket. Full outswinger, starts outside off, angling away, moving away as opposed to swinging in. Bosisto throws his hands at a drive and sends an edge behind to Dunk at first slip. 5/1
2.6 to M Klinger, Quiney marks his return to the Stars side with an excellent catch. He dives full-length to his right from mid-on and pouches this mis-hit with both hands. Klinger steps out and hacks at it, but only drags it off the inside half to Quiney. 9/2
3.5 to AJ Turner, Three wickets in four overs! Turner shimmies down the track and plays all around a full, straight ball. He is nowhere close to the pitch of this, plays across the line, and misses it, before turning back to survey the damage. Low-percentage shot from Turner. 10/3
18.3 to DJ Willey, Stoinis bounces out Willey and gives him a little send-off. Head-hunting short ball on middle, Willey dares to hook but only loops a top edge behind to Handscomb. 125/6
17.2 to HWR Cartwright, Another terrific catch from Quiney, this time he runs back from short cover and tracks down this leading edge. Short on off, flipper from Zampa, foils Cartwright's attempt to muscle it over midwicket. 111/5
14.4 to AC Voges, The hit-the-deck bustle of captain Hastings finds the outside edge! Length ball, kicks up just a shade outside off, no room for Voges to free his arms. He can only feather it behind to Handscomb. 93/4

Fall of wickets: 1-14 (Ben Dunk, 2.1 ov), 2-30 (Peter Handscomb, 4.2 ov), 3-36 (Luke Wright, 4.6 ov), 4-40 (Glenn Maxwell, 5.6 ov), 5-59 (Marcus Stoinis, 9.5 ov), 6-97 (Rob Quiney, 15.4 ov), 7-128 (John Hastings, 19.3 ov), 8-129 (Adam Zampa, 19.6 ov)
2.1 to BR Dunk, After four plays and misses, Johnson draws the outside edge. Caught at second slip. Speared full and wide outside off, Dunk is nowhere close to the pitch of this wide ball. He simply thrusts his hands out in the corridor for a booming cover drive and snicks it behind to Turner at second slip. 14/1
5.6 to GJ Maxwell, Maxwell backs away outside leg and looks to open up the off side. But loses his shape and inside-edges this full-toss back onto the stumps. Stars 4 for 40. They need another special from Stoinis if they are to get anywhere near 142. 40/4
4.2 to PSP Handscomb, Terrific catch from Bosisto at deep midwicket. This was short and wide outside off, ripe for the pull shot. Handscomb belts it in the air. Bosisto plucks it out at the edge of the boundary but the momentum pushes him over it. So he coolly scoops the ball into the field of play, then jumps in to complete the catch with the sun squinting into his eyes. Bosisto made that look ridiculously easy. 30/2
4.6 to LJ Wright, 118ks knuckle ball outside off, full, Wright scoops a drive straight to mid-off. AJ Tye continues to peel off the wickets in the Big Bash. 36/3
9.5 to MP Stoinis, Cartwright's day gets better! He tears in from deep midwicket, attacks the ball, and dives forward to take it. The soft signal from umpire Fry is out. And it is out. The ball dropped on the fielder, but he did well to stretch out and wrap his fingers around the ball, ensuring it did not burst out. This was short and outside off, Stoinis swats it away in the air, but Cartwright's effort was simply stunning. 59/5
19.3 to JW Hastings, Wicket no.4 for AJ Tye. Back-to-back four-wicket hauls for the Scorchers seamer. Banged in short on middle, cramps up the batsman for room. He hooks late and skies it behind. Inglis, the keeper, tracks down the big top edge. 128/7
19.6 to A Zampa, AJ Tye seals Scorcher's second win with a five-wicket haul! Very full and straight - not quite the perfect yorker but good enough to breach Zampa's weak defences and rattle the stumps. 129/8
