SIX! Daniel Sams to Glenn Maxwell. Off cutter length ball, to leg on the front foot Slog, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. Finished in style with a six. Maxwell has had enough of picking up the singles and decided to get the game over with. Melbourne dominated the run-chase from ball one and took advantage of the powerplay. Not enough change of pace deliveries from the Thunder bowlers which they found hard to play so Melbourne were able to comfortably knock the ball around and take advantage of anything loose. Big win for the Stars as they move into second spot.

1
Dwayne Bravo to Gurinder Sandhu. Off cutter length ball, outside off stump backing away Slog, missed to wicketkeeper for 1 run, mis-fielded by Gotch. Thunder finish on 135-8 from their 20 overs. It was a struggle throughout the innings with the pitch helping the bowler's slower balls. Early wickets fell and it was down to the big hitting Sams to put a score on the board that the Thunder bowlers can defend. Stars would have hoped to be chasing a smaller total after the good start they made.
19.5
W
OUT! Run Out. Dwayne Bravo to Gurinder Sandhu. Off cutter back of a length, wide outside off stump backing away driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to mid off for 1 run, fielded by Dunk, by Bravo. Suicidal running trying to get Sandhu on strike and pick up the extra run. Way out of the crease and an easy decision for the on-field umpire.

OUT! Caught. Dwayne Bravo to Chris Green. Off cutter length ball, down leg side backing away Slog, top edge in the air uncontrolled to wicketkeeper, by Gotch. Straight up into the night sky. Deceived by the slower ball and cramped for room as Bravo followed Chris Green. Very good work behind the stumps from Gotch as the ball was swirling as it came down.

OUT! Caught. Marcus Stoinis to Daniel Sams. Slower ball full toss, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep backward point, by Zampa. Sliced out to deep point. Once more Sams has struck it pretty well but instead of using the full face it comes as more of a slice so the placement is not there. Good catch from Zampa in the deep.

Start of Sydney Thunder Innings. Hello and welcome to Match 20 which will see the Melbourne Stars taking on Sydney Thunder. We are back on the Gold Coast at the Metricon Stadium where the pitch has turned out to be superb for batting on. That might be why Sydney have won the toss and decided to bat first. Currently the Thunder are in a tie for 2nd place but if the Stars were to win all of their games in hand they would jump above them. Liam Plunkett will make his first appearance of the season for the Stars while Sandeep Lamichanne has gone off to the BPL and will be a huge loss to the side. For the Thunder it's the same XI who won a tight game against the Scorchers the other day.

Maxwell has had enough of picking up the singles and decided to get the game over with. Melbourne dominated the run-chase from ball one and took advantage of the powerplay. Not enough change of pace deliveries from the Thunder bowlers which they found hard to play so Melbourne were able to comfortably knock the ball around and take advantage of anything loose. Big win for the Stars as they move into second spot.

APPEAL! Jono Cook to Nick Larkin. Leg spinner length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad to point for no runs, fielded by Sangha, appeal made for L.B.W. Huge shout and this looks very close. Larkin wasn't confident which way the ball was turning and prodded forward very tentatively with the front pad. Not out given.

OUT! Caught. Daniel Sams to Ben Dunk. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air under control to short extra cover, by Root. Very good catch from the England captain. Driving on the up and Dunk isn't able to get the elbow high enough to keep it down. Only just carries to Root diving forward at cover.
