So, that is it from this game. Melbourne Stars with this win solidify their place at the top of the table. Scorchers with this humiliating loss have gone down from 3rd to 4th. BBL action continues on Thursday as Sydney Sixers welcome the Hobart Hurricanes. That game will begin at 1910 local (0810 GMT). Join us for that one. Till then, goodbye!

For his excellent 3-fer, Jackson Coleman has been awarded the Man of the Match. Coleman says it was a fantastic game and everything went their way. Adds that he has been rehabilitating all this time and wants to make an impact as the team heads towards the business end of the tournament. Further says that it has been a long time since his last game and he is happy to make his comeback in such a positive manner. Ends by saying that Stoinis is hitting the ball really hard at the moment and that is really well for the side.

Earlier in the evening, after opting to bat, Scorchers never got going and only Josh Inglis did something with the bat. The hosts were bowled out for just 86. It was a very good team performance in the field by the Stars with Coleman starring with 3 wickets. Lamichhane had 2 while the trio of Maxwell, Haris Rauf and Coulter-Nile picked one each.

Nothing to talk about Perth Scorchers' bowling. They had nothing to bowl at and defending a super under-par total of 87, they needed more than a miracle which never came. Jhye Richardson was good with the ball as he bowled with pace. Fawad Ahmed and Mitchell Marsh were the two who got into the wickets column. The Scorchers will like to forget this horrible day and move on.

Easily done! Another evening and another easy win for the Stars. They decimated the no.2 side in the previous game and they have done the same with the no. 3 side as well. Chasing an under-par total of 87, Cartwright and Stoinis gave them the start they wanted. The former could not see off the game for his side and Ben Dunk too failed to do the same coming at number 3 but Stoinis stayed there till the end and saw off the game with ease along with Seb Gotch.

Mitchell Marsh to Seb Gotch

FIVE WIDES! And that will be it. The Stars have won the match by 8 wickets. Length ball down the leg side, Gotch looks to flick but misses. Inglis dives to pouch onto that ball but misses. The ball races away to the fine leg fence and five wides have been signalled by the umpire.

Jhye Richardson to Marcus Stoinis

FOUR! Misfield and a four results. Well, Morgan has undone all the good work that he did the last time out. On the pads of Stoinis, he flicks this straight to the man at square leg but Morgan there allows the ball to deflect off him and go to the fence which results in a boundary.

Jhye Richardson to Seb Gotch

Good fielding in the deep! Back of a length ball on middle, Gotch pulls this one towards the mid-wicket region. Jaron Morgan in the deep runs hard to his left and dives to save a run for his side. Spirited effort even though his side for are down and out.
