1
Gurinder Sandhu to Nick Larkin. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to mid off for 1 run, fielded by Ferguson. An entertaining cameo from Larkin to finish this game off but sadly for the Stars it will not be enough. They've been comfortably beaten tonight by the Thunder who showed real strength today in areas people perhaps might not have expected. Sangha and Sams particularly impressed, the early wickets of the latter meant that the Stars just never got going. That's all from me for tonight, join us again soon.

.
Dwayne Bravo to Jason Sangha. Slower length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, missed to wicketkeeper for 2 runs, shy attempt by Dunk, overthrow by Dunk, fielded by Maxwell. They scamper back for two after Dunk misses the stumps and that takes the Thunder to 181 from their 20 overs. A fantastic knock from Sangha who was supported by Sams means that despite the big names in Thunder's top order not cashing in on their starts they were still able to set a challenging total. Can the Stars chase these down and get off to a winning start or will those dropped catches prove costly?

FREE HIT. SIX! Marcus Stoinis to Jason Sangha. Slower ball full toss, middle stump on the front foot Slog, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. The free hit is a slow full toss and it gets the treatment it deserves. Smashed into the stands by Sangha.

Dwayne Bravo to Jason Sangha. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to extra cover for 1 run, fielded by Lamichhane. Good over from Bravo. I feel like the Stars may have missed a trick here not bowling more fast bowlers and bowling the ball into the pitch. The spinners have been struggling with the moisture on the ball.

It was another googly, turning just enough to beat the inside edge. Again the Stars might be wishing they could review that decision.

Start of Sydney Thunder Innings. Good evening and welcome to the Manuka Oval in Australia's capital city of Canberra. Tonight it's Sydney Thunder and Melbourne Stars who get their BBL campaigns underway. There is a bit of an English theme in the Thunder camp, their squad includes Jos Buttler, Chris Jordan and for the first time in the BBL, Joe Root. The Stars have a number of BBL veterans in their ranks, the likes of Glenn Maxwell, Dwayne Bravo and Marcus Stoinis have plenty of T20 experience under their belts. Tonight's venue is not the biggest ground in Australia and with the explosive batting talent on show from both teams we could be in for an exciting spectacle this evening.

An entertaining cameo from Larkin to finish this game off but sadly for the Stars it will not be enough. They've been comfortably beaten tonight by the Thunder who showed real strength today in areas people perhaps might not have expected. Sangha and Sams particularly impressed, the early wickets of the latter meant that the Stars just never got going. That's all from me for tonight, join us again soon.

There was a pause for thought from the umpires but it really is coming down hard and the only option was to get the players off and get that pitch covered up. Some movement from the ground staff as the rain has eased here. It looks like the large sheet is coming off. Shane Watson is in discussion with the umpires, I believe there will be some sort of revised target when we do get a restart. Covers being unfurled again sadly as we're getting some more rain again now. We've lost five overs of the match so far. The latest news here is that the rain has stopped and the ground staff have begun the job of clearing up and getting the covers off. Play will resume shortly with the Stars needing 86 runs to win from 45 balls.
