Ball by Ball Live Score Commentary

The Stars win by 44 runs. That was a clinical display of defensive bowling. The Strikers were building at 3 for 97 but the Stars used the conditions very well, bowling loads of slower ball cutters into the slow surface and it led to a collapse. The Strikers lost 7 for 26 to be all out for 123. Stoinis, Plunkett and Bravo bagged three wickets each. The Stars are on a roll. They move up into 4th on the BBL table. The Strikers have lost three in a row and slump to 6th on the table. Ben Dunk is named Player of the Match for his 72 not out. Thanks for your company this afternoon. Up next, the Sixers host the Hurricanes at the SCG. Goodbye for now.
