Daniel Worrall412827.00163200
17.1 to SE Gotch, yes he can! Low full toss on the stumps, Gotch tries to give himself room to hit over the off side but loses his shape and chips it up to Rashid Khan, who takes a simple chance at cover. The Stars lose their sixth and are limping towards the finish line. 111/6
17.6 to A Zampa, cutter on a length, Zampa is beaten all ends up and is knocked over! In fact, looked like the back-of-the-hand slower ball. Zampa didn't pick it, and saw his middle stump pegged back.. 121/7
Harry Conway402917.25110310
13.2 to HWR Cartwright, edged, and gone! The Stars are in all sorts of trouble. Test match dismissal. Length ball, angling in towards off stump, Cartwright didn't move his feet, presented a defensive prod, and nicked it through to Carey. 88/5
Wes Agar411924.75141110
3.1 to ADS Fletcher, low full toss, hacked to mid-on! Fletcher's horror run continues. Loosener from Agar to start with, failing to land it, but Fletcher loses his shape and picks out mid-on looking to carve over the leg side. The Stars lose their first. 17/1
11.6 to MP Stoinis, back of a length, skews up off the edge, and Weatherald takes the catch! Stoinis is furious, smacking his pads with his bat repeatedly. Agar roars in celebration, and Wells breathes a deep sigh of relief. Checked his shot, looking to punch through mid-off, and it squirted up off the outside edge. Simple catch. 80/4
Rashid Khan402927.2584000
8.5 to NCR Larkin, got 'im! Wicked googly, full of a length, and Larkin never really stood a chance. He couldn't read it out the hand, cleared the front leg and swung wildly, and loses his middle stump. King Khan strikes. 52/2
8.6 to GJ Maxwell, another first-baller for Maxwell! Rashid has two in two and that is a huge moment! Wide half-volley outside the off stump, not the best ball he'll bowl tonight by any means. Maxwell almost paid it too must respect, shaping to steer over the off side with an open face. He mistimed it, and Briggs took a simple chance at backward point. 52/3

Adam Zampa402025.00131100
9.6 to AT Carey, gets down to reverse looking for a boundary to secure the point, but the connection isn't good and Maddinson dives to take a beauty in tight at short third man! Incredible stuff. Maxwell had a backward point and a short third man inside the ring, telling Zampa he was happy for Carey to take on the reverse if he wanted with three needed for the bonus point. That's exactly what he did, switching his stance looking to flip it over the infield, but Maddinson scrambled back to take a great catch! High drama and the Stars are back in this!. 65/3
14.3 to J Weatherald, drops short as Weatherald brings out the reverse, and he chips a straightforward catch to Maddinson at point! Second dismissal on the reverse-sweep in a row, and Zampa gives Weatherald a bit of a send-off, gesturing towards the dressing room. It's getting heated out there and the Stars are right in the game.. 97/4
Sam Rainbird403318.2584100
3.6 to MT Renshaw, picks out the man at deep square leg! Renshaw's frenetic innings comes to an end. Rainbird went fullish outside the off stump, and Renshaw shuffled over looking to whip this over the leg side. Good catch from Nick Larkin running in off the rope, and the Stars make the breakthrough with the final ball of the powerplay. 27/1
Glenn Maxwell401914.7570000
8.1 to PD Salt, skied up to Hatcher at long-off who swallows the catch and the Stars are buzzing! Big celebrations from both fielder and bowler. Salt didn't need to play the big shot but decided he would look for a straight six. He miscued it, with Maxwell sliding it across him from wide on the crease, and Hatcher pounched the chance. Crucial breakthrough!. 58/2
Haris Rauf3033111.0044110
17.5 to JW Wells, great catch from Larkin coming in off the rope! Another twist! Rauf hangs it outside the off stump and Wells tries to kill the game with another boundary. He slices it into the air, and Larkin runs in off the point boundary to take an excellent catch. 134/5
