So that is it from this game. Don't go far away as we switch tabs. The second game of the double header between Brisbane Heat and Sydney Sixers is not far away.

Haris Rauf has been adjudged Man of the Match for his brilliant effort with the ball. He starts by thanking the almighty. He says that for the last two years he has been playing grade cricket for Sydney and it was his dream to play in Big Bash. This year he got the chance to bowl with Melbourne stars. He is happy with his performance and says that he has been training well. He dedicates his award to his family. He also adds that he idolizes Dale Steyn and that it is an honour to share the dressing room with him.

Coming onto Hurricanes. They did not have the best of the starts with the ball as their opening bowlers were taken for runs. Though they manage to crawl their way back in the middle overs of the Stars innings but were let down by their sloppy fielding. When their chance came for batting they were blown away by the Stars attack. Neither of their batsmen looked to be in the game. Apart from Clive Rose and Caleb Jewell none looked confident.

Melbourne win by 52 runs. What a victory this has been for them. A superb day for the men in Green. Every thing was right for them from the word go. Maddinson and Stoinis gave them a brisk start. Though Maddinson departed, Stoinis continued to play his game and took his side to a competitive total. For them Haris Rauf was a surprise that they unleashed on the Hurricanes' batsmen. His fiery pace terrorized the batsmen. In the end he ended with match figures of 4-0-27-5.

Adam Zampa to Riley Meredith

OUT! STUMPED! That's over. Meredith is the last man out. Zampa finishes the things off. He tosses one on off, Meredith takes a few steps down and looks to go over the cow corner. He misses his wild hoick and the ball goes towards the keeper. Handscomb takes it and whips the bails off in a flash. The umpire goes upstairs to check for the stumping and the replays show that Mederith was well outside his crease when Handscomb whipped the bails off.

Stumping appeal taken upstairs! Looks close.
