What a game of cricket. The low scoring ones are often the best. Lots of momentum swings, but in the end, the Stars sneak home by five runs. Marcus Stoinis producing the goods with bat and ball. A quick 43 to go along with his four wickets. He was the difference between the teams tonight. The Stars are now up to joint second with 12 points. The Heat basically have to win all their remaining games to stand a chance of qualification now. They remain in seventh with seven points.
19.6 - D Bravo to M Swepson
Off cutter length ball, down leg side on the front foot driving, in the air under control to long off for 2 runs, fielded by Dunk.
Skewed off the outer half of the bat, and the ball skims away between backward point and short third man. Won't be enough for the Heat, though.

Yorker, to leg backing away driving, thick edge past third man for 4 runs.
19.4 - D Bravo to J Lalor
Off cutter length ball, down leg side on the front foot Slog, hit pad to cover for 1 run, fielded by O'Connell.
Miscommunication in the running, and it is a simple run out for the Stars. Lalor misses, Handscomb collects behind the stumps, and flings it back to the keeper. Doggett wants to run through for the bye, but Lalor is unmoved. Bravo knocks off the bails with both batsmen at one end.
