Join us again tomorrow evening for live coverage of Match 9 of the KFC T20 Big Bash League with Sydney Sixes hosting the Perth Scorchers. Goodbye from the MCG!
Clinton McKay has been named KFC BBL man of the match after claiming 3/25 from his four overs in the first innings.
The Stars now join their cross town rivals, Melbourne Renegades, on 4 points, with the Renegades having a game in hand though over the Stars.
