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. Adam Zampa to Arjun Nair. Leg spinner length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long off, by Handscomb. Two in the over for Zampa. The risk of bowling the spinner at this stage has paid off for the Stars. Nair uses his feet and tries to clear long off, but he just doesn't get enough distance on it. A regulation take by the fielder in the deep.

Fifty for Alex Ross, which is his second of this campaign. He is keeping the Thunder in this chase. He needs to be there at the end for them to have a good chance.
