Over 20. 18 runs. Bowler: Haris Rauf. Sydney Sixers: 7-175(rr 8.75)
19.6
.
Haris Rauf to Ben Dwarshuis. Off cutter short, down leg side on the back foot pulling, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Gotch. A massive win for the Stars, and an important one too. Marcus Stoinis grabs all the headlines with his incredible unbeaten 147 off 79 balls. He was the big difference between the two sides tonight. Hilton Cartwright struck a nice fifty alongside him, and Clint Hinchliffe nipped in with three wickets with the ball. The Sixers fought hard with the bat, but were pretty dreadful with the ball. That win for the Stars means they go four points clear at the top. The Sixers remain in second on 12 points.Tomorrow's BBL action sees the Hurricanes take on the Scorchers, so join us again for that.

SIX! Tom Curran to Marcus Stoinis. Full toss, down leg side on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control over fine leg for 6 runs. Stoinis wants another no-ball for over waist height, but it might just be ok. He still takes full advantage of it, carting it over fine leg for one last six.Well, what a knock that was from Marcus Stoinis. The highest ever individual score in BBL history. Hilton Cartwright chipped in with a handy fifty of his own, as the Stars blast their way to a mammoth 219. The Sixers bowlers were all over the place, and had no clue how to handle the Stars openers. This is going to be one hell of a task for their batsmen in the chase. They need a miracle to get the win from here.

Cartwright gets a low full toss, looks it pump it out the ground, but doesn't quite get all of it. Off the bottom end of the bat, and pouched in the deep by Silk. What a partnership for the Stars.

Start of Melbourne Stars Innings. Welcome to Match 34 of the BBL. Sydney Sixers have won the toss at the MCG and elected to bowl first. This should be an absolute cracker this evening, as the top two teams will be battling it out. The Stars are two points clear of the Sixers at the moment, so a win for either side would be very important for them. Both are very likely to qualify for the next stage, but they will want to carry on the momentum that they currently have. Whatever the result, it should be a thrilling few hours of cricket.

Haris Rauf to Ben Dwarshuis. Off cutter short, down leg side on the back foot pulling, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Gotch. A massive win for the Stars, and an important one too. Marcus Stoinis grabs all the headlines with his incredible unbeaten 147 off 79 balls. He was the big difference between the two sides tonight. Hilton Cartwright struck a nice fifty alongside him, and Clint Hinchliffe nipped in with three wickets with the ball. The Sixers fought hard with the bat, but were pretty dreadful with the ball. That win for the Stars means they go four points clear at the top. The Sixers remain in second on 12 points.Tomorrow's BBL action sees the Hurricanes take on the Scorchers, so join us again for that.

OUT! Caught. Clint Hinchliffe to Moises Henriques. Left-Arm Leg Spin length ball, middle stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long off, by Larkin. Four down, and it is looking increasingly difficult for the Sixers now. Henriques was going well, but had to keep that tempo going, and just miscued this one. Wanted to go legside, but sliced it down to long off for a regulation catch.
