Cameron Valente403619.0053100
14.1 to GJ Maxwell, back of a length ball on fourth stump, Maxwell tries to muscle this over long-on, crowd groans as Renshaw takes a step back initially before charging in and then settling comfortably 10 meters in from the rope to take an easy catch at head height, palms facing out.. 102/2

6.5 to MP Stoinis, this shot sums up the Stonis innings. Absolute meatball of a full toss at thigh height on six stump, Stoinis tries to muscle this over long-off, but can't clear Worrall on the rope at long-off. Stoinis is begging for a no ball to be called on height but no mercy from the umpire, and none deserved. Lifeless knock is put to sleep.. 41/1

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Glenn Maxwell401223.00130000
2.4 to AT Carey, darts this in flat on middle stump, Carey clears the front leg trying to clear mid-on but fans on this. Middle and leg stump knocked back. Maxwell roars. Stars finally having things go their way tonight.. 8/2
10.4 to JW Wells, good length ball on the stumps, Wells charges down trying to make this a fuller delivery to launch over long off, he gets the elevation but not the distance and Maddinson takes his second catch in as many overs, this time on his haunches with his hands in front of his face, palms out.. 51/4
Zahir Khan401924.75131020
1.4 to PD Salt, tries to reverse sweep this good length ball on fourth stump and the pace does him in skidding on and induces a thin edge. Replays indicate it came off the glove rather than the bat face but either way it's out. Big appeal upheld.. 6/1
11.1 to RJ Gibson, from bad to worse for the Strikers. Knee high full toss on the stumps, could've landed in the seats but instead he swats this flat to deep midwicket, taken easily 10 yards in from the rope. Bad ball gets a wicket.. 53/5
Billy Stanlake201015.0081010
13.3 to C Valente, back of a length ball on off stump, shuffles way across his stumps trying to flick this over short fine leg, thin edge/glove goes through to the keeper. Straightforward appeal upheld.. 63/9
Adam Zampa3.201755.1092000
9.3 to MT Renshaw, flights this more on a good length on fourth stump, Renshaw struggles to keep his hands back and to make matters more difficult it's a googly spinning further outside off. Renshaw slaps this more off the toe of the bat high toward long-on, hangs in the air awhile to allow Maddinson to recover coming off the rope after initially misjudging it and he takes a catch sliding on his knees 15 yards in from the rope.. 44/3
12.1 to J Weatherald, stone dead! Zips this in flat and full on middle stump, way too full for the sweep shot and Weatherald misses, hit on the back leg just above the flexed knee in front of middle stump. Cursory appeal upheld immediately by the umpire. No doubt that pitched in line and was ripping out the stumps.. 59/6
12.4 to DJ Worrall, flighted full on middle, charges down the pitch and skies this over mid-off, Fletcher jogs in from the ring and takes a simple catch.. 59/7
12.6 to DR Briggs, Zampa with a BBL 4-for! another attempted paddle sweep, but after a close shave last ball, Briggs can't escape this time around. Flighted a touch more on fourth stump and spins in to beat the bat. Struck in line with off stump and a big appeal upheld. Looked in trouble the moment he played the shot.. 63/8
14.2 to LN O'Connor, Zampa ices the game before the rain really starts to pelt down. Flipped skids on from a good length on off stump, O'Connor can't read the fellow leggie and he plays around this as it smashes into off stump. Zampa picks up a BBL five-for!. 68/10
