They are having a good time as they are unbeaten after the two games and currently at the 2nd position on the points table. In the last match, batting first, Stars started their innings pretty good. They scored 80 runs in the first 10 overs without losing any wickets. But later, they began to lose wickets in regular intervals and were restricted to a total of 163 runs in 20 overs. Nic Maddison played a decent inning of 40 runs from 39 balls. The star of the innings was Marcus Stoinis, who scored 81* runs from 54 balls and helped Stars in posting that total.
Melbourne Stars bowlers bowled exceptionally well. They started up picking up wickets from the 3rd over and got the opposition all out for 111 runs in 16 overs. They never allowed the opposition to gain momentum. Haris Rauf was just brilliant in that match and picked up a fifer for 27 runs in his four overs, Glenn Maxwell and Adam Zampa picked up two wickets each, Sandeep Lamichane picked up one wicket. They won that match by a significant margin of 52 runs. Melbourne Stars would be hoping to continue their winning momentum against Adelaide Strikers.
The first match played by Adelaide Strikers was abandoned due to the visibility factor because smog had covered the ground as the second innings was in progress. In the second match, Batting first, Strikers lost an early wicket of Philip Salt in the 1st over. But Jake Weatherald and Matthew Short played brilliantly and steadied the innings. Short got out in the 9th over after scoring34 runs from 22 balls. Later, Alex Carey and Weatherald smashed the bowlers all over the park by scoring 55 runs from 24 balls and 83 runs from 47 balls, respectively. In the end, Jonathan Wells scored 18 runs from 9 balls, and Strikers posted a massive total of 198 runs in 18 overs (Match was reduced to 18 overs due to rain).
While bowling, Strikers gave away 124 runs for the first wicket that too in just eight overs. It looked like Strikers would lose the match even after scoring a massive total of 198 runs. But they picked up two wickets of set batsmen back to back and picked up other wickets in regular intervals and restricted the opponents to 183 runs and won the match by 15 runs. Rashid Khan picked up 3 wickets, Harry Conway and Wes Agar picked up 2 wickets each. They would want to better their performance against Melbourne Stars and hopefully win the game.
