18:42 Local Time, 07:42 GMT, 13:12 IST: The Thunder have outplayed the Stars. This performance will lift them. They got the momentum when Sams managed to effect 4 wickets in his final over to shut the scoring and then Hales and Bancroft set a great base for the rest of the batting line-up to play their cameos with no run rate pressure. Webster was the pick of the bowlers for the Stars and he tried to get his team back into the contest by removing both openers in the same over. Earlier, the Stars bulit on his excellent fifty to post a competitive total, but they easily left 15-20 runs in the final two overs, which could have made the difference.
