W
OUT! L.B.W. Sean Abbott to Haris Rauf. Yorker, middle stump on the front foot defending, hit pad to. Rauf out for a golden! The Sixers win this one comfortably in the end, 43 runs the difference, they were different class, the Stars are on a four match losing streak now, they will find it tough to get to the final the way their batting is at the moment. Sydney in the final the first time of asking, they have a nice long rest whilst the other teams fight for their spot in the final. Great performances all round, especially the bowlers.

OUT! Run Out. Sean Abbott to Daniel Worrall. Back of a length, outside off stump backing away cutting, to third man for 1 run, fielded by Hazlewood, by Philippe. Worrall out, he's been run out trying to push for two, there wasn't two there but they needed the runs. Sydney need one more wicket to wrap this one up.

Haris Rauf to Jordan Silk. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, missed to wicketkeeper for 1 run, shy attempt by Gotch, shy attempt by Rauf. That bye concludes the Sixers innings as they slump to 142 for 7, not the best score and not what they were hoping for, the Stars are in the driving seat here, but with the likes of Lyon and Hazlewood bowling for the Sixers there could be a twist to this game. Advantage Melbourne in this one, lets see if they can get to the BBL final.

Start of Sydney Sixers Innings. Welcome to the game between Melbourne Stars and Sydney Sixes in this all important qualifier, the winner of this advances straight to the final of the BBL. Even though the Stars finished the season on top of the BBL they've suffered three losses in a row and are in the worst form they have been in all year. As for the Sixers, they have been consistent throughout the season, but with the loss of Tom Curran their success could change with the all-rounder joining the England team in South Africa. The Stars have improved their squad for today's game, Haris Rauf joins the side after his stint with Pakistan which should galvanize the Stars. We are minutes away from the biggest game in the BBL so far, lets see if both these sides can show their quality and produce an incredible match.

Back-foot punch for four, brilliant timing on this one, Handscomb off to a great start here, the Stars need some stability, they have Maxwell to come in, but if the Sixers get him in early they will really fancy this one.

Big wicket for the Sixers, he works one straight to the man at mid-on as he attempts to go through the on-side. The Sixers are in this game, the wicket looks to be troubling the batters, so maybe the Sixers got a decent score.

Lyon drops it too short which allows Maddinson to pull the ball away, he doesn't time it well, he nearly holes out to the man at mid-on but just gets it over him, on this fast out-field the ball runs away for four and the Stars get another boundary.
