Melbourne Stars Innings

The Melbourne Stars began their innings positively with Thomas Rodgers and Daniel Lawrence providing a decent start. Thomas Rodgers contributed 19 runs before being dismissed by Ben Dwarshuis. Glenn Maxwell, coming in after the first wicket, aggressively attacked the Sixers bowlers, scoring a quick 31 runs off just 14 balls with 2 sixes and 4 fours. However, Todd Murphy, with an inspired spell of 2/15, ended Maxwell’s innings. Despite Beau Webster’s good performance in the top order, he was dismissed for a golden duck by T Murphy.

This wicket affected the Stars’ scoring rate, particularly as Lawrence and Stoinis faced challenges against the spinners. Dwarshius, Abbott, and Tom Curran bowled tightly. The Stars managed to collect 30 runs off the last two overs, securing a reasonable total, despite late surges from Stoinis and Cartwright.

The Melbourne Stars concluded their innings with a somewhat modest total, and T Murphy claimed two wickets, while Tom Curran and Dwarshuis each managed to take one wicket.
