Fall of wickets: 1-2 (Sam Harper, 0.3 ov), 2-10 (Beau Webster, 1.4 ov), 3-38 (Thomas Rogers, 6.2 ov), 4-49 (Marcus Stoinis, 8.3 ov), 5-49 (Nick Larkin, 8.6 ov), 6-66 (Jonathan Merlo, 11.1 ov), 7-79 (Hilton Cartwright, 13.3 ov), 8-79 (Usama Mir, 13.4 ov), 9-80 (Joel Paris, 14.3 ov), 10-101 (Haris Rauf, 19.1 ov)
0.3 to SB Harper, edged and gone! Early success for Richardson! Fullish outside off, and it entices Harper into the booming drive. Does so without much foot movement, though, and the deviation away means that he can only feather it through to Inglis. Just the start the Scorchers would have wanted; the last thing the Stars needed!. 2/1
11.1 to J Merlo, soft dismissal! Length delivery angled into middle and off stump. Merlo, slightly ambitiously, looks for the reverse lap but the ball gets too big on him. The ball comes off the higher part of the bat and loops up for Inglis to take the easiest of catches. The Stars slide further!. 66/6
1.4 to BJ Webster, two in two overs for the Scorchers! Length delivery pushed across the batter outside off. Webster comes down the track, looking to go inside out. Loses his shape, though, and has to reach out because of how wide the ball is. It flies off the outside edge and Hardie does the rest at third man!. 10/2
8.3 to MP Stoinis, Stoinis bites the dust! Slower bumper outside off and it has the beating of Stoinis. He is unsure of how he wants to play it, and in the end, tries to just help it into the leg side. The extra bounce, though, means that Stoinis cannot get on top of it and he feathers it through to Inglis!. 49/4
8.6 to NCR Larkin, oh yes, he can! Length delivery slanted across the batter just outside off. Larkin's feet go nowhere and he fishes at it. Gets a thick outside edge that flies towards Connolly at second slip, who, like Eskinazi, parries the ball into the air but then snares it! The Stars in all sorts of trouble now!. 49/5
6.2 to TF Rogers, taken, finally! Floated up full just outside off. Rogers gives himself room and drills it straight to Eskinazi at short extra cover, who juggles multiple times before finally holding onto it. Was a fairly straightforward chance that was made difficult, but in the end, the Scorchers have their third wicket!. 38/3
13.3 to HWR Cartwright, Cartwright perishes now! Slightly quicker and shorter at the stumps. Cartwright thinks he can thump this over deep mid wicket but the ball is not short enough to get the elevation he wants. Makes decent contact but also picks out deep mid wicket, stationed well inside the fence, to perfection!. 79/7
13.4 to Usama Mir, cleaned up first ball! Leg-spinner on a back of a length on middle and off. Seems to gather pace off the surface and Usama Mir, trying to work it into the leg side, is beaten by the pace and perhaps the slight turn into him. Breezes past the bat and he hears the death rattle soon after!. 79/8
14.3 to JS Paris, chops it on! Stars are nine down! Hard length outside off. Paris tries to hack it away over mid wicket but is rushed into his stroke. The ball skims off the inside edge and thuds into the stumps. Nothing going right for the Stars; everything going to plan for the Scorchers!. 80/9
19.1 to Haris Rauf, Rauf falls, and the Stars have been bundled out for 101! Hard length on leg stump, and this skids through. Rauf, making room to go over cow corner, is hurried into his stroke and can only cloth it straight to the sweeper at deep mid wicket!. 101/10

Fall of wickets: 1-35 (Cooper Connolly, 3.2 ov), 2-60 (Stephen Eskinazi, 7.4 ov), 3-66 (Aaron Hardie, 8.3 ov)
3.2 to C Connolly, superb catch by Cartwright! Banged into the track on middle and leg, and this seems to zip off the surface. Connolly, looking for the pull, is slightly late on the stroke and splices it. Loops up and Cartwright dashes in from the deep square leg fence, completing the catch with a full-length dive forward. Has this wicket already come a little too late, though?. 35/1
7.4 to SS Eskinazi, holes out to deep backward square leg! Length on middle and off. Seems to hold in the surface and bounces a little more than Eskinazi anticipates. He cannot control his sweep and the ball lobs up tamely off the top edge, straight into the palms of Larkin!. 60/2
8.3 to AM Hardie, six and out! Fizzed through shorter and quicker on middle stump. Hardie tries to manufacture a cut stroke but giving room. The extra pace and bounce, however, means he cannot keep it down and Dawson at backward point snaps up a fairly regulation chance!. 66/3
