WICKET

Zampa gets Wells with a stumping. He came down to drive and missed it. Handscomb missed at first attempt but not the second.

Wells st Handscomb b Zampa 22 (29)

5/98

Melbourne Stars vs Hobart Hurricanes highlights: Big Bash League scores, blog

15 overs

Stoinis’ over goes for eight, but no boundaries. That’s 18 consecutive balls that Hobart have scored from, but just one boundary from those 18.

HH 4/98

Melbourne Stars vs Hobart Hurricanes highlights: Big Bash League scores, blog

FIFTY

Marcus Stoinis comes in and starts with a short-ball. Bailey pulls it for two to bring up 50.

Bailey 50* (36)

HH 4/92

Melbourne Stars vs Hobart Hurricanes highlights: Big Bash League scores, blog

14 overs

Beer gets taken for six singles. Whilst the consistency is to be admired, they’re in desperate need of some boundaries now.

HH 4/90

Melbourne Stars vs Hobart Hurricanes highlights: Big Bash League scores, blog

13 overs

Bailey starting to tee off now! Boland comes back into the attack. Bailey gets two off an inside edge that just goes over cover. He then belts a six off a full, slower delivery over Pietersen’s head.

HH 4/84

Melbourne Stars vs Hobart Hurricanes highlights: Big Bash League scores, blog

12 overs

Zampa continues, and is driven brilliantly by Bailey through the covers for four. Hurricanes need plenty more of those. Both teams wearing black armbands tonight to remember George Bailey and Luke Wright’s late teammate from Sussex 22-year old Matthew Hobden.

HH 4/70

Melbourne Stars vs Hobart Hurricanes highlights: Big Bash League scores, blog

11 overs

Hastings returns for his 2nd over. He gets one ball to seam a mile nearly confusing Handscomb who just manages to stop the byes. Wells scampers through for a quick single off the last ball of the over.

HH 4/62

Melbourne Stars vs Hobart Hurricanes highlights: Big Bash League scores, blog

10 overs

Bailey looks on song with a well timed cover-drive but could only get a single. Pietersen does well in the field to limit a Wells cut shot to no run.

HH 4/58

Melbourne Stars vs Hobart Hurricanes highlights: Big Bash League scores, blog

9 overs

Faulkner makes it six bowlers for the Stars. Bailey breaks the shackles with a smooth six over the top of Faulkner’s head with a straight bat.

HH 4/54

Melbourne Stars vs Hobart Hurricanes highlights: Big Bash League scores, blog

8 overs

Zampa the new man, as the Stars love of spin continues. He’s taken for four runs off his first over, as Hobart remain below six an over.

HH 4/43

Melbourne Stars vs Hobart Hurricanes highlights: Big Bash League scores, blog

7 overs

Maxwell comes back in. Bailey hits him over the top for four as Pietersen makes a meal of fielding it on the boundary rope.

HH 4/39

Melbourne Stars vs Hobart Hurricanes highlights: Big Bash League scores, blog

6 overs

Bailey defends Boland’s last ball. Wells the new batsman.

HH 4/31

Melbourne Stars vs Hobart Hurricanes highlights: Big Bash League scores, blog

WICKET

New member of the national ODI squad Scott Boland comes into the attack. Just over 30,000 in the crowd at the moment according to Network Ten. Christian tries to nick a single as he hits toward mid-on but Luke Wright pounces on it and does superbly to throw down the stumps.

Christian Run Out (Wright) 4 (11)

5 overs

Hastings comes into the attack and goes for five runs. Bailey and Christian just happy to stay in for now.

HH 3/29

Melbourne Stars vs Hobart Hurricanes highlights: Big Bash League scores, blog

4 overs

Hobart in tatters at 3/20 odd again. They take three off Beer’s 2nd over.

HH 3/24

Melbourne Stars vs Hobart Hurricanes highlights: Big Bash League scores, blog

3 overs

WICKET

Maxwell resumes and is cut finely by Dunk for four runs. Horrible run out. Bailey hits it behind him straight to the fielder. Dunk calls him through for a single, but Bailey refuses to run, as its a terrible call, leaving both men at the keepers end. Hastings throws to the bowler’s end and Dunk will take the fall.

Dunk Run Out (Hastings) 11 (6)

HH 3/21

Melbourne Stars vs Hobart Hurricanes highlights: Big Bash League scores, blog

2 overs

Bailey comes in a lot earlier than he would’ve liked and hits a four off the final ball of the over, meaning Beer falls just shy of a wicket-maiden. George and Dunk will need a decent partnership here.

HH 2/14

Melbourne Stars vs Hobart Hurricanes highlights: Big Bash League scores, blog

WICKET

Stars opening with spins from both ends, as Michael Beer comes in and he immediately has a big lbw appeal on Sangakkara. Next ball he’s gone! He’s been given out caught down the leg side. Well taken from Handscomb, but did he he it?

Sangakkara c Handscomb b Beer 1 (4)

HH 2/10

Melbourne Stars vs Hobart Hurricanes highlights: Big Bash League scores, blog

1 Over

Finally the end of Maxwell’s nine-ball over, as Sangakkara gets off the mark with a single, and Dunk adds two more.

WICKET

Dunk works maxwell for three, before maxwell bowls another wide. Paine looks to take him over the top of mid-off but is caught by Faulkner at full stretch, great catch!

HOB 1/7
Paine 0 (2) c Faulkner b Maxwell

Melbourne Stars vs Hobart Hurricanes highlights: Big Bash League scores, blog

Maxwell starts with two wides, leaving the amusing scoreboard of 0/3 off 0.0

HH 0/3 (Paine 0, Dunk 0)

Melbourne Stars vs Hobart Hurricanes highlights: Big Bash League scores, blog

Hobart batting first with Tim Paine on strike and Ben Dunk at the other end. Glenn Maxwell will start with the new ball in the hope of replicating the spin success of the Renegades in Hobart’s last match.

The teams are as listed down the right-hand side of the page, except Rose comes in for Reed, giving the Canes an extra spinner.

Hello and welcome to live coverage of the Big Bash! Last time out the Melbourne Stars won the derby in front of over 80,000 people. Hobart are looking to get back on the winners list. Should be a cracker.

Stumps have officially been called. Play will start at 10:30am tomorrow. 98 overs are required to be bowled. Australia need 7 wickets, New Zealand need 362 runs. If the rain holds off we should be in for an exciting final day.

Thank you for joining me on The Roar.
