1
Gurinder Sandhu to Nick Larkin. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to mid off for 1 run, fielded by Ferguson. An entertaining cameo from Larkin to finish this game off but sadly for the Stars it will not be enough. They've been comfortably beaten tonight by the Thunder who showed real strength today in areas people perhaps might not have expected. Sangha and Sams particularly impressed, the early wickets of the latter meant that the Stars just never got going. That's all from me for tonight, join us again soon.

FOUR! Gurinder Sandhu to Nick Larkin. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, thick edge in the air uncontrolled past third man for 4 runs. A big swing, a big thick edge and the ball loops over short third man and runs away for four. Just the five sixes required now.
