Quick delivery which slides onto the bat. Bounces off the bottom edge and cannons into the stumps. Stars complete a comprehensive victory by 44 runs and they move up to fourth spot. They had runs on the board and bowled superbly on this wicket. Changes of pace had the batsmen scrambling for runs while Plunkett and Stoinis skittled through the middle-order in quick fashion.
