Tom Curran to Jonathan Merlo. Slower length ball, off stump on the front foot flick, to deep mid wicket for 2 runs, fielded by Silk. The Sixers take the win on the back a captains performance from Moises Henriques. 72 off just 31 balls, when the rain had reduced the game set what was always going to be a stiff target for the Stars to chase. The home side solidify themselves in the Top 3 and look set for a double chance in the playoffs.

OUT! Caught. Tom Curran to Nick Larkin. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to extra cover, by Hughes. The Stars aren't doing this from here. Larkin attempts to hit it out the ground, but completely miscues. Simple take for the man inside the ring.

OUT! Caught. Nathan Lyon to Marcus Stoinis. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep mid wicket, by Henriques.

OUT! Bowled. Ben Dwarshuis to Nic Maddinson. Slower length ball, outside off stump on the front foot slog sweeping, missed to. A scratchy knock from Maddinson finally comes to an end. He doesn't pick the change in pace from Dwarshuis, is through the shot too early, and it loops through to smash into middle stump. Maxwell needs a special knock to pull off this chase now.
