Ball by Ball Live Score Commentary

The Scorchers win by six wickets with 14 balls to spare. That was a clinical chase. Ashton Turner closed that out magnificently after an excellent half-century from Cameron Bancroft. Turner has been exceptional in this season and he keeps his team alive in the tournament. But the game was set up with the ball. Andrew Tye is Player of the Match for his 4 for 18 from four overs. Usman Qadir was excellent with the ball as well. The Scorchers now head home to face the Sydney Sixers on Sunday. The Stars need to regroup ahead of a clash with the Adelaide Strikers on Friday. Thanks for your company tonight from the MCG. Until next time, goodbye.

17.5 1 Plunkett to Bosisto 126kph, bouncer, called no-ball for the second bouncer for the over! Game over. But no one knew. The keeper took it, threw the stumps down, Bosisto was in, but then took off to run as it ricocheted away, Gotch ran in picked it up and broke the stumps and he would have been out but the game was over! Crazy finish 1 no ball
17.4 1 Plunkett to Turner 130kph, bunting to midwicket and running, Bravo has all the time to line up the stumps and run him out and misses! 1 run
17.3 2 Plunkett to Turner 120kph, short ball over off, he backs away and upper cuts this over backward point, doesn’t time it but gets a couple 2 runs
17.3 1 Plunkett to Turner 113kph, slower ball, drifting down leg, he tries to glance and misses, it was close to leg but called wide 1 wide
17.2 4 Plunkett to Turner 108kph, slower ball short and wide and he cuts this easily through backward point and there’s no one there protecting that ball! Easy boundary FOUR
17.1 1 Plunkett to Bosisto full outside off, he pushes in the air on the front foot through a vacant cover-point 1 run

Plunkett on

End of Over No.17 137/4 This Over (2 runs)

Matt: “Said during the Stars innings that Turner would chase them down on his own – low and behold! One of the top T20 finishers around, hope he gets a chance in the IPL with RR” Good call Matt. He’s a gun

16.6 1 Bravo to Bosisto 105kph, length slower ball, outside off, he pushes this with an open face through backward point 1 run
16.5 0 Bravo to Bosisto 105kph, slower ball, full toss that dips again, Bosisto sits back and watches it and defends late no run

Cartwright in

16.3 W Bravo to Agar Bowled him! 105kph change up slower ball completely deceives him! Like a change up in baseball, it was a full toss, Agar skipped down to smash it and it just dipped violently and did him cold, it hit the base of middle. That is exceptional skill from Bravo OUT
AC Agar b Bravo 7 (8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 87.50
16.2 0 Bravo to Agar slower ball, 98kph way down leg, he gets a little glove on it and it bounces to Gotch so it’s not called wide no run

Around the wicket

16.1 1 Bravo to Turner 124kph, full outside off, he drives easily down to long off 1 run

15.5 1 Boland to Turner slower ball, back of a length, he tries to work to leg, but it comes off the inside edge onto thigh and drops down and Agar calls him through 1 run
15.4 6 Boland to Turner 134kph, short ball, he steps inside the line and pulls off the top edge that flies over short fine and again over the fence and down the race in the bowels of the MCG! SIX
15.3 2 Boland to Turner 117kph, leg cutter slower ball, into leg stump, he just pushes to the circle at wide mid on and they run an easy two. This pair is lightning between the stumps 2 runs
15.2 2 Boland to Turner 117kph, pulled hard to deep midwicket, they take on Bravo’s throw and beat him! What great running 2 runs

Huzefa: “@Stiaan – Smith’s team is not playing any match today at the BPL.”

Beer back around the wicket

Agar in at No.4

13.3 W Bowe to Bancroft appeal for a stumping! It goes upstairs. He’s OUT! He tried to sweep from outside off, missed it, he dragged his back foot out, Gotch whipped the bails off in a flash and knew he had his man. The replay shows he didn’t get his back foot back in OUT
CT Bancroft st †Gotch b Bowe 59 (42b 4×4 2×6) SR: 140.47
