Nic Maddinson to Jhye Richardson. Stock ball back of a length, outside off stump down the track driving, mis-timed to short extra cover for 1 run, fielded by Maddinson. The Stars win another one! They hit the Scorchers with as much spin as possible, and the tactic paid off. After the first six overs passed, the Perth batsmen never looked comfortable. A mixture of poor running, terrible strokeplay, and good bowling meant they ended up 10 runs short. That victory means the Stars extend their lead at the top. The Scorchers remain in fourth on ten points.Stay with us for more BBL, as the Sydney smash is just moments away.

Nic Maddinson to Jhye Richardson. Stock ball back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, bottom edge to wicketkeeper for 1 run, dropped catch by Gotch, fielded by Morris.

19.1
W
OUT! Run Out. Chris Jordan to Hilton Cartwright. Yorker, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to silly mid off, direct hit by Jordan. In the blockhole from Jordan, and Cartwright squeezes it back to the bowler. Gotch was backing up a long way, and took too much time in getting back. Jordan collects, and underarms it into the stumps at the non-striker's.

18.5
W
OUT! Bowled. Jhye Richardson to Nick Larkin. Yorker, middle stump on the front foot pushing, bottom edge to. That's more like it from Richardson. The perfect yorker executed, and Larkin cannot dig it out. A slight under edge into the off stump to give the Scorchers their fifth wicket.

Runs : 0 Bowler: Matthew Kelly Wickets : 1
13.5
W
OUT! Caught. Matthew Kelly to Glenn Maxwell. Off cutter back of a length, outside off stump no foot movement Scoop, to wicketkeeper, by Inglis. Maxwell helps it into the keeper's gloves! Clever bowling from Kelly. He was one step ahead of the Stars captain here. He takes the pace off it, Maxwell still goes for the ramp, but can only flick it into Inglis' hands. Huge wicket for the Scorchers.

SIX! Fawad Ahmed to Glenn Maxwell. Googly half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control over long on for 6 runs. Maxwell just gets it over the head of the long on fielder! The front leg is cleared, the Stars skipper swings hard, and blasts it away for six.

W
OUT! L.B.W. Fawad Ahmed to Nic Maddinson. Leg spinner length ball, off stump on the back foot working, hit pad to. Big turn on show, and Maddinson is trapped in front! The left hander went deep in the crease, looking to turn it into the legside, but he got beaten on the inside edge. A very tight decision, but HawkEye says the ball would've clipped the top of leg stump.

W
OUT! Caught. Matthew Kelly to Nathan Coulter-Nile. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep mid wicket, by Bancroft. A big mow across the line from Coulter-Nile, and he doesn't connect well. Off the inner half of the blade, it turns in the hands, and the ball lobs down the throat of deep mid wicket.

W
OUT! Caught. Matthew Kelly to Marcus Stoinis. Yorker, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to short extra cover, by David. Chipped into the hands of short extra cover! Most think this is a bump ball, as only a few celebrate. The replays are clear, though. Right off the toe end, and it loops up into the fielder's hands. Important wicket for the Scorchers to take.

SIX! Matthew Kelly to Marcus Stoinis. Off cutter length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. Stoinis takes on the biggest boundary in the ground, and it just creeps over the rope! Swiped across the line, and it flew away for the first max of the day.

OUT! Caught & Bowled. Nic Maddinson to Cameron Bancroft. Stock ball full toss, off stump down the track driving, back to bowler, by Maddinson. Sensational grab from Maddinson off his own bowling. Bancroft cracks this back to the part-timer, who reacts brilliantly. He puts the hands up, and the ball sticks in the left palm.

OUT! Run Out. Nic Maddinson to Cameron Bancroft. Stock ball back of a length, outside off stump down the track pushing, to short extra cover, by Hinchliffe, by Gotch. Bancroft stitches up his captain here. Poked straight to the fielder in the ring, and he sets off for the single. Massive hesitation from Marsh, and he isn't able to make his ground. Clean bit of fielding was all that was needed. Big scalp for the Stars.

W
OUT! Caught. Sandeep Lamichhane to Liam Livingstone. Leg spinner length ball, outside off stump down the track Slog, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep mid wicket, by Cartwright. Brainless shot from Livingstone. He advances down the pitch, maybe looking to go straighter than he ending up going, but he drags it into the hands of deep mid wicket. Poor timing of footwork and the shot. There was no need for that from Livingstone.

FREE HIT. SIX! Lance Morris to Liam Livingstone. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. Livingstone takes full advantage of the free hit. Bludgeoned over cow corner for a maximum.

W
OUT! Bowled. Daniel Worrall to Josh Inglis. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, bottom edge to. Chopped on. Inglis plays this as late as possible, but he ends up playing it into his own stumps. Blocked into the turf, then it bounces back up into the off pole.
