For Melbourne Stars in particular, this edition of the league has been one the side would just be wanting to put behind them, such has been the appalling and abject brand of cricket the side have partaken in. With a mere two wins from nine matches, the side find themselves firmly planted in last position, a position which looks unmovable for them with the side needing to cover a massive deficit.

It was not just a win for them though with the side putting down their arch rivals, Melbourne Renegades in a stunning result, a performance which was completely opposing to the kind of cricket they have revelled us in till now.
Stepping out to chase 166, a target which would have no other days proved to be hazardous for them, the side managed to squirm their way through to a win by 7 wickets after their top-order stepped up in tandem to imbed in place a succulent performance. Elsewhere, Sydney Thunder managed to defeat Adelaide Strikers in a humdinger of a contest, a match which went right down to the super over after both the sides ended up level on 161.
