Haris Rauf to Chris Tremain. Off cutter back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Gotch.

Melbourne Stars are through to the BBL final. They were on top for the majority of this match, and fully deserve their place alongside the Sixers on Saturday. The partnership between Marcus Stoinis and Nick Larkin took the game away from the Thunder. They needed their top order to fire in the chase, but early wickets meant they were always behind the rate. Alex Ross made things interesting with a quickfire fifty, but Sydney ended up 28 runs short.

Join us again in a couple of days time, where the Stars and the Sixers will battle it out for the trophy this year. It should be a belter!

OUT! Caught. Nathan Coulter-Nile to Daniel Sams. Back of a length, outside off stump Deep in crease pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep mid wicket, by Larkin. Sams holes out in the deep now. The Thunder are crumbling to defeat. He steps back to create the length, but totally mis-hits it. Easily taken by Larkin on the boundary edge.
