Summary

Melbourne Stars lost six wickets in 3.1 overs but got over the line for a narrow win against Sydney Thunder (1:59)Melbourne Stars 7 for 143 (Larkin 65, Stoinis 58, Sams 3-25) beat Sydney Thunder 7 for 142 (Ross 40, Rauf 3-24) by three wicketsMelbourne Stars survived an almighty scare that rivalled their BBL final collapse last season to beat Sydney Thunder by three wickets and move to the top of the BBL table.Half-centuries by player of the match Nick Larkin and Marcus Stoinis put the Stars on the brink of a comfortable win as they needed just 20 from 23 balls with nine wickets in hand. Chris Morris, Daniel Sams, and Nathan McAndrew bagged two wickets each in four overs of mayhem before Adam Zampa calmly hit the winning run with two balls to spare.Earlier, Haris Rauf made an incredible return to the BBL, taking 3 for 24 in another rapid spell to help restrict the Thunder to just 7 for 142. The Stars were sloppy in the field, dropping two catches and missing three run-out chances.Larkin learns the lessonNic Maddinson failed to learn from the mistakes of Hales and Khawaja, and was bowled trying to pull a length ball from Sams in the opening over, a wicket-maiden.
