Peter Siddle to Adam Zampa. Full toss, down leg side Deep in crease flick, hit pad to short fine leg for no runs, fielded by Stanlake. High class death bowling from Peter Siddle, which means the Strikers sneak home by five runs. The game was over until Glenn Maxwell came to the crease. A rapid 43 from the Stars skipper meant the game turned into a last over thriller, but it was the Strikers who held their nerve for the victory. Siddle certainly stood out with the ball, but Rashid Khan was as impressive as always, too.The win means the Strikers go joint top with the Thunder, and the Stars slide down to third with four points. More BBL action tomorrow, it is the Sydney derby, so one that cannot be missed.

OUT! Bowled. Peter Siddle to Ben Dunk. Yorker, to leg on the front foot flick, missed to. That's superb from Peter Siddle under pressure. He produces the perfect leg stump yorker, which cramps Dunk for room, and sneaks through to hit the base of the pole. Zampa needs a six off the last to win it for the Stars.
