Nathan McAndrew402716.75122011
2.6 to JM Clarke, bizarre way to go! Looks to pull but Clarke gets a thick inside edge onto the thigh pad as the ball lobs to the fielder running in from backward point. 18/1
Tanveer Sangha402927.2591200
9.3 to GJ Maxwell, attempts the switch hit but is done in by sharp turn! Sangha bowled this a touch short as well, Maxwell was in position attempting a full ball that he could swat, went through early and missed it altogether.. 61/3
17.4 to HWR Cartwright, this time Cutting at long-on makes no mistake. Sliced strraight up in the air and Cutting moves to his left to take it near the sightscreen. Cartwright did not get it off the middle as it was bowled on the stumps. 141/4

Nathan Coulter-Nile412726.75102010
3.1 to SM Whiteman, he's scooped that onto the stumps! Went across, got down on one knee to scoop it over the keeper's head but the fine deflection smashed the stumps instead.. 29/2
17.2 to M Gilkes, this game is turning. The short ball and hurries Gilkes with the angle from round the wicket, he gloves the pull and Joe Clarke nearly makes a mess of a simple catch. Snaffles it and goes to ground - not sure whether he lost balance at the last moment there, but manages to hang on. Another big wicket for The Stars. 135/5
Adam Zampa403117.7563000
1.6 to AD Hales, got him! Hales has paid the price for being too inventive! Goes a long way across to sweep, but Zampa fires this full and fast, he misses it completely and is trapped plumb in front.. 20/1
Glenn Maxwell10909.0032000
Qais Ahmad302317.6661110
14.1 to SW Billings, Qais is back on for a wicket and he delivers. Such a good outfield catch by Maxi at long-off. Billings slices the lofted hit after stepping out, Maxi judged it well and ran to his left to tumble and take it two-handed even as it went away from him a little in the end. A wicket The Stars desperately needed.. 118/3
Andre Russell4040010.0063140
Brody Couch302317.6682100
15.5 to DR Sams, pace does it for Couch. Sams hurried on the short ball, takes the top-edge on the pull and a simple catch for Joe Clarke. Stars fighting back with another wicket. The chase isn't as straightforward anymore. 123/4
