That's it from this game. The second game of the day is already underway. Hop tabs to get all the action. See you there!

21:26 Local Time, 10:26 GMT, 15:56 IST: Cartwright didn't realise for a moment that he's finished the game. Lovely chase this. First time this season the Stars have held their nerve and they have done it where the Sixers are pretty strong. It was the bowlers who set it up in the first 10 overs with the ball, reducing the Sixers to 4 down for under 6 RPO. James Vince then played a brilliant innings to inject life into the dressing room. When the Stars lost 4 wickets for 66 runs, fears of another poor batting display surfaced but Webster and Cartwright stitched a fifty partnership. The Sixers tried to pull things back towards the end but Cartwright held one end tight and batted sensibly to get his team over the line.


Dwarshuis to Cartwright, FOUR, oh short slower delivery that never arrived, Cartwright waited and pulled it over fine leg and that's it. First win of the season for the Stars


Dwarshuis to Cartwright, FOUR, the bat flies off his hands as he makes contact but he did well to slice it perfectly in the gap to the right of backward point and middled it pretty well to take the deep fielder out off equation

8 off 5 now!


Dwarshuis to Cartwright, no run, oh full toss outside off stump, Cartwright swings and misses! How did he miss that

Ben Dwarshuis [3.0-0-18-0] is back into the attack


Abbott to Cartwright, 1 run, excellent yorker outside off stump, Cartwright digs it out to mid-on and Cartwright will keep strike


Abbott to Cartwright, 2 runs, full delivery, smacked wide of long-on, oh the fielder runs all the way to the right and dives to push the ball back and he does so well to do this before his back was touching the rope. Brilliant save


Abbott to Merlo, 1 run, short of length delivery, Merlo dabs to backward point

Jonathan Merlo, right handed bat, comes to the crease


Abbott to Imad Wasim, out Caught by Daniel Hughes!! This is a slower delivery that is completely mishit. Imad thought he could have a boundary of mid-off, but toe-ended it so high, mid-off judges the high catch nicely into his hands. Still the Stars are the favourties! Imad Wasim c Daniel Hughes b Abbott 14(10) [4s-2]

Abbott to Imad Wasim, THATS OUT!! Caught!!

Just 12 needed off 10


Abbott to Imad Wasim, 2 runs, slower delivery, Imad lofts this slower delivery over mid-off, another two


Abbott to Imad Wasim, FOUR, who need Power Surge when you have the range of shots! Shortish slower delivery, Imad pulls, didn't middle that but the timing was still good enough, long-on slides to stop but loses the battle


Bird to Imad Wasim, 1 run, low full toss, Imad flicks to mid-wicket


Bird to Imad Wasim, 2 runs, slower delivery, Imad mistimes the loft, sliced it over mid-off


Bird to Imad Wasim, FOUR, Bird misses the yorker, bowls a full toss and Imad manages to lift this over mid-off. Pressure released


Bird to Imad Wasim, no run, low full toss, Imad slices it straight to point, three dots
