.
Haris Rauf to Ben Dwarshuis. Off cutter short, down leg side on the back foot pulling, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Gotch. A massive win for the Stars, and an important one too. Marcus Stoinis grabs all the headlines with his incredible unbeaten 147 off 79 balls. He was the big difference between the two sides tonight. Hilton Cartwright struck a nice fifty alongside him, and Clint Hinchliffe nipped in with three wickets with the ball. The Sixers fought hard with the bat, but were pretty dreadful with the ball. That win for the Stars means they go four points clear at the top. The Sixers remain in second on 12 points.Tomorrow's BBL action sees the Hurricanes take on the Scorchers, so join us again for that.
