Maxi stands tall in Sixers loss

23 January 2018

Glenn Maxwell scored 84 off 47 in tonight's loss to the Sydney Sixers.

The Sydney Sixers picked up a five wicket win tonight despite an 84-run knock from Maxwell.

After losing the toss and being sent into bat, the Stars loss both openers early leaving them at 2-18.

Enter Maxwell, who combined with Bobby Quiney to put on a solid partnership. Maxwell's knock of 84 included seven fours and four sixes. 

The Stars finished with a total of 5-189.

In reply, the Stars dismissed Daniel Hughes early with all-rounder Evan Gulbis taking a ripping diving catch. 

However, Nic Maddinson (61 off 26) and Joe Denly (72* off 45) proved way too strong for our bowlers, delivering the Sixers a 5 wicket win.

The Stars will next face the Hobart Hurricanes in their final BBL07 match of the season on Saturday.
