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.

OUT! Stumped. Nic Maddinson to Matthew Kelly. Stock length ball, outside off stump down the track Slog, missed to wicketkeeper, by Gotch. Maddinson gets a third! Kelly dances out the crease, and it goes on with the arm past the inside edge. Good keeping again from Gotch, collecting cleanly and whipping off the bails.

FOUR! Nic Maddinson to Matthew Kelly. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, well timed in the air under control past long on for 4 runs. The Scorchers are still alive. Kelly muscles it over cow corner for a one bounce four.

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. Harsh to call this a drop. A big deflection off the under edge, and Gotch doesn't get low enough to make the catch stick.

OUT! Caught. Clint Hinchliffe to Chris Jordan. Left-Arm Leg Spin length ball, off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long on, by Maxwell. Jordan had to go for the big shot, but doesn't quite get enough on it to clear Maxwell at long on. He steadies himself on the boundary edge, and swallows up the catch. The Stars should be winning this from here.

OUT! Run Out. Nic Maddinson to Chris Jordan. Stock ball back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, to extra cover, fielded by Coulter-Nile, by Gotch. Suicidal running from the Scorchers. Driven firmly to the man on the edge of the ring, and they try and take him on. Green is miles short of his ground. Sharp bit of work from the keeper.

OUT! Stumped. Nic Maddinson to Tim David. Stock length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, missed to wicketkeeper, by Gotch. Maddinson gets a second! David skips out the crease, and ends up just running past it. Nowhere near the pitch, went through with a wild shot, and it skidded past the outside edge. Gotch has all the time in the world to whip the bails off.
