Over 20. 6 runs. Bowler: Peter Siddle. Melbourne Stars: 6-170(rr 8.50)

.
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.

FOUR! Nathan Coulter-Nile to Jonathan Wells. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control past long off for 4 runs. Now the perfect hitting length. Wells strikes it nicely over mid off, and it lands just inside for four more.

FOUR! Nathan Coulter-Nile to Jonathan Wells. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control past long on for 4 runs. Same again. Not good bowling at all. Wells sits back, and hammers it away a touch straighter this time.

FOUR! Nathan Coulter-Nile to Jonathan Wells. Off cutter short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Slow, short, and it sits up nicely for Wells. Slapped away to cow corner for a one bounce four.

FOUR! Adam Zampa to Jonathan Wells. Leg spinner short, outside off stump down the track pulling, in the air uncontrolled past deep mid wicket for 4 runs, dropped catch by Cartwright. Oh dear, that is a dolly. How costly will that be? Smoked straight down the throat of deep mid wicket, and it bursts straight through the hands of Hilton Cartwright. To make matters worst, the ball rolls into the rope.

FOUR! Daniel Worrall to Philip Salt. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs. Gorgeous from Salt. He stands tall, gets on top of the bounce, and crunches a back foot drive through extra cover for four. Lovely placement on that.

FOUR! Dale Steyn to Jake Weatherald. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past long off for 4 runs. Carnage. Weatherald crushes another one, this time along the deck, and it fizzes away past mid off for four more.

FOUR! Dale Steyn to Jake Weatherald. Off cutter length ball, middle stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control past long off for 4 runs. The connection isn't quite as sweet, and the ball lands inside the rope this time before trickling into the boundary. Steyn keeps bowling that same length, and is getting punished.
