Runs : 4 Bowler: Riley Meredith Wickets : 1
Over 8. 4 runs. Bowler: Riley Meredith. Melbourne Stars: 3-55(rr 6.88)
7.3
.
Riley Meredith to Peter Handscomb. Short, outside off stump on the back foot defending, to silly point for no runs, fielded by Meredith. Back comes the rain. As it stands the Stars are ahead of the DLS par score, which is 51. They need to get back out there in 15 minutes or so, otherwise it could be game over.Handshakes all around, so that will be it. The Stars win by four runs. A terrific bowling display, and they just did enough with the bat to get over the line. The Hurricanes struggled with the bat, but fought hard to keep things tight. That means the Stars jump up to second, and Hobart remain in fifth on four points. Tomorrow's BBL action sees the Strikers against the Thunder, so join us again for that.

Attempts a similar shot, but drags it into the hands of long on. A flat-batted smash, but Stoinis didn't get enough behind it, and Miller gobbles it up on the boundary edge.

10.6
.
Nathan Coulter-Nile to George Bailey. Off cutter length ball, outside off stump backing away Slog, missed to wicketkeeper for 2 runs, overthrow by Handscomb, fielded by Dunk. Very difficult for the Hurricanes to set a decent total there. The reduction in overs and rain delays has massively helped out the Stars. However, they still bowled extremely well. The seamers picked up the wickets, and the spinners kept it tight. Melbourne will be chasing 80 for the win. Very doable. Hobart will have to bowl superbly if they are to come out on top.

FOUR! Nathan Coulter-Nile to George Bailey. Short, outside off stump backing away pulling, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Nicely struck by Bailey. He jumps outside leg, and shovels it over cow corner for a one bounce four.

OUT! Caught. Nathan Coulter-Nile to Caleb Jewell. Short, down leg side on the back foot pulling, Spliced in the air uncontrolled to first slip, by Handscomb. Another one goes straight up. Jewell tries to take on the bumper now, it comes off the top end of the blade, and Handscomb doesn't have to move again. Tough for the Hurricanes to come out and hit from the off.

OUT! Caught. Dale Steyn to David Miller. Short, down leg side on the back foot pulling, Gloved to leg slip, by Handscomb. Superb from Steyn. An awkward bouncer in at the armpit, and Miller doesn't know what to do with it. The ball spoons up off the glove, and Handscomb takes another.

Start of Hobart Hurricanes Innings. Welcome to Match 16 of the BBL. Melbourne Stars have won the toss and elected to bowl first. It is a mid-table clash this evening. These two teams have identical records so far, winning two of their three games. A victory today would see one of the sides jump up to joint second. Hopefully it should be a good contest and a close game.

.
Riley Meredith to Peter Handscomb. Short, outside off stump on the back foot defending, to silly point for no runs, fielded by Meredith. Back comes the rain. As it stands the Stars are ahead of the DLS par score, which is 51. They need to get back out there in 15 minutes or so, otherwise it could be game over.Handshakes all around, so that will be it. The Stars win by four runs. A terrific bowling display, and they just did enough with the bat to get over the line. The Hurricanes struggled with the bat, but fought hard to keep things tight. That means the Stars jump up to second, and Hobart remain in fifth on four points. Tomorrow's BBL action sees the Strikers against the Thunder, so join us again for that.
