FOUR! Chris Morris to Glenn Maxwell. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control past deep extra cover for 4 runs. There is it! Maxwell lofts it over the top, and it skips away into the rope to finish things off.The Stars cruise home to win with 13 balls to spare. Marcus Stoinis played the anchor role at the top of the order, and Glenn Maxwell blasted a quickfire fifty of his own to seal things with ease. The Thunder would've thought they were still in with a shout heading into the last 10 overs, but the Stars captain just took it away from them. That victory means that the Stars jump back up to the top, and level on points with the Sixers. The Thunder remain in fourth on seven points.The BBL action continues tomorrow, so join us again as the Heat take on the Hurricanes.
