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.

OUT! Caught. Riley Meredith to Marcus Stoinis. Short, outside off stump Deep in crease pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long on, by Miller. 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.
