8.34pm That will be it for this match, but there's more BBL action on at the Sydney Showground Stadium where the Adelaide Strikers are taking on Sydney Thunder. This is Abhimanyu signing off on behalf of Alex Malcolm, Ranjith P and Chandan Duorah. Goodnight!

8.31pm Well, that was a comprehensive performance from the Melbourne Stars. Joe Clarke's brilliant unbeaten 101 set them up with a big total before the bowlers ensured the Hurricanes never got into the game. They bowled well in the Powerplay and then struck in regular intervals to keep pegging Hobart back. Stars skipper Zampa led the way with a three-wicket haul, while left-arm pacer Luke Wood also picked up three. Nathan Coulter-Nile also grabbed a couple and Trent Boult got one right at the end. The Stars will be happy to have won on a day that they honoured the late Shane Warne at the MCG. They lost their first game of the season by just one wicket in a last-ball thriller, but have bounced back very well with a commanding victory here.

Boult to Paris, OUT

What a stunning catch! Banged in short and he looked to back away and cut it but gets a thick edge behind point. Hinchcliffe, on as a sub, runs to his left from short third and takes a brilliant diving effort

18.4
Zampa to Dooley, no run

Length ball on middle, can't connect with the pull

18.3
Zampa to Dooley, no run

Zampa almost has a fourth! Dooley goes across to try and paddle it fine but misses as Zampa loops this up on middle. Hit on the back leg and umpire gives it immediately. Dooley reviews and there was clearly no bat on that but it's umpire's call on impact and missing wickets!

18.2
W
Zampa to Ellis, OUT

Good catch by Boult! Ellis can't get this cleanly as he looks to go aerial off a length ball on middle and Trent Boult does well to run to his left from midwicket and takes it with ease in the end

Wood to David, SIX runs

Muscled over long-off! Full delivery just outside off and David just uses his long levers to power it down the ground. There was no fielder there in the deep, but would not have mattered even if there had been one
