Australia international Maxwell clinched the Stars' third straight win in the Big Bash League with 16 balls remaining by launching a huge six over deep midwicket that took them past the target of 136.

Melbourne now sit second in the table, while the Thunder slipped to fifth after a third loss in their last four outings.​

Sydney opener Jos Buttler reclaimed his place as this season's leading run-scorer from D'Arcy Short, but he fell for just 18 and Scott Boland (2-28) added the scalp of Callum Ferguson for a golden duck off the next ball.

BBL 08 : Sydney Thunder defeated Melbourne Stars by 15 runs (DLS). Live Updates. The Thunder ’s Jason Sangha and Daniel Sams starred , while the Stars ’ Sandeep Lamichhane With his second ball, he dismissed Shane Watson, caught by Nick Larkin on the boundary, sparking huge celebrations.

England Test captain Joe Root made 26 off 28 deliveries before being dislodged by Marcus Stoinis (2-29), who denied Daniel Sams a half-century after he stuck four sixes en route to a 25-ball 42.

Stoinis (34) also played an important role with the bat for the Stars, but it was Maxwell and Larkin who got them across the line in fine style.


Having been named in Australia's ODI squad for the forthcoming series against India, Stoinis showed just how useful he can be in the limited-overs formats.

He took the key wickets of Root and Sams as the Thunder were limited to an achievable total, while six fours - including three in succession off Jono Cook (0-22 from two overs) - displayed his game-changing ability.

BBL08: Cameron Bancroft's return to cricket lasts three balls It was the tentative shot of a man who hasn’t played professional cricket but, surely, it will be a relief to have it out of the way. © Provided by Perform Media Channels Limited Depending on if you find Phill Tufnell amusing or a relic of a mid-70s cultural cringe where we actively courted overseas stars to do their career death spiral on our TV screens, you may find the following funny. "I just hope his mother sewed his pockets up," the former off-spinner said as Bancroft walked out. A Mr. R. Ponting didn't seem that impressed in the commentary box.

Star performances from Wade, Short, and Archer ensure the Hurricanes make it two from two. The big moment: Maxwell was in fine touch for the Stars and with him and Nick Larkin set at the crease The next stop: The next test for the unbeaten Hurricanes is a clash against the Sydney Thunder at

The match between Sydney Thunder and Melbourne Stars at Manuka Oval in Canberra was Stars won the toss and elected to field first. The Thunder got off to a brilliant start as Jos Buttler and Even as Nick Larkin flayed his willow to good effect and scored 28 runs from 13 balls with three boundaries


Cook will no doubt have been disappointed with his performance, having met an embarrassing end in the first innings.

Gurinder Sandhu's (3) decision to squeeze two out of a dink to long off enabled Ben Dunk and Dwayne Bravo to combine to whip the bails off and remove Cook for zero runs and without facing a single delivery.

Bravo had removed Chris Green (14) two deliveries prior as the Stars stymied the Thunder late on.


Sydney's bowling attack was finding it difficult to break Maxwell and Larkin's union, and a blunder from Fawad Ahmed did little to help.

He may have claimed an important wicket in the shape of Stoinis, but when Sam Rainbird's delivery came off the thigh of Maxwell and headed for the boundary at fine leg, Fawad slid beyond the ball and let it through his grasp for four leg byes.

To add insult to injury, Maxwell pulled a short ball beyond Fawad off the very next delivery to add another four runs.
