Ball by Ball Live Score Commentary

Melbourne Stars win by eight wickets with 16 balls to spare. That was a clinic from Maxwell and Larkin. They did that on cruise control. Never took a risk. The Thunder had no answer at all. Marcus Stoinis got them off to a good start and the Stars never looked back. The Thunder will rue their batting display. Batting first may have been an error as well but they really lost their way in the middle overs. Marcus Stoinis is Player of the Match for his 2 for 29 and 34 off 22 balls. He will now leave for Australia ODI duty as will Glenn Maxwell and Adam Zampa. That concludes our coverage from the Gold Coast. But the BBL action continues tonight with Perth Scorchers hosting Brisbane Heat at Perth Stadium.

saiful-BD: “With all due respect, and coming from a Bangladeshi fan as well, why would you leave the BBL to play in the lesser-viewed BPL? Wouldn’t the BBL lead to better chances of being scouted by the IPL in the future, due to the quality of players? ” I don’t know the reason. I think he had committed to the BPL before he signed with the BBL. But I’m not 100 per cent sure.
