Melbourne Stars are having a great time this season as they are currently at the 1st position on the points table with nine wins and a loss and total of 18 points and have almost qualified for the playoffs.
In the last match, bowling first, Stars bowled well in the power play and picked up three wickets for 53 runs. But after that, they just bowled magnificently and didn’t allow the opposition to score runs and picked up seven wickets for only 38 runs and got the debate all out for 86 runs in 14 overs. Jackson Coleman bowled brilliantly and picked up three wickets for just 16 runs in 3 overs. Sandeep Lamichane also bowled well and picked up two wickets for only seven runs in his three overs. Nathan Coulter-Nile, Haris Rauf, and Glenn Maxwell picked up one wicket each.
With 87 runs to chase and with the batting line up of Stars, it was very easy for them. They lost only two wickets, one in the 9th over and others in the 9th over and comfortably won the match by eight wickets. Stoinis scored 39* runs and was the top scorer in the game.
Stars have won 7 matches in a row and are in their best form, and they would once again want to show their domination on the Perth Scorchers and continue their winning streak.
Perth Scorchers are also looking good as they are currently at the 4th position on the points table with five wins and five losses and a total of 10 points.
In the last match, batting first Scorchers started well but lost three wickets in the power play for 53 runs. After that, they just fell apart, losing wickets one after the other. Josh Inglis 37 runs and Cameron Bancroft 10 runs were the only two players to score in double digits, all the other players couldn’t even score even ten runs, and thus, they go all out for 86 runs in 14 overs.
With 86 runs to defend, it was an impossible task for the bowlers. They weren’t able to pick up wickets in the beginning and also gave away runs. Scorchers picked up their 1st wicket in the 8th over, and it was pretty late by then, and thus, the opposition chased the target very comfortably in 12 overs, and Scorchers lost the match by eight wickets. Fawad Ahmad and Mitchell Marsh managed to pick up one wicket each.
They would want to win their next match against Melbourne Stars and take the revenge of a humiliating defeat in the previous game.
