Hobart Hurricanes 167/6 (20 ov)

Scorecard


Hobart Hurricanes won the toss and elected to field, a decision they might now regret as opener Glenn Maxwell (154*) smashed their bowlers around the park.

On his way to the unbelievable total he hammered 22 fours and 4 sixes.

Marcus Stoinis (75*) joined him to add a half century and see Melbourne Stars to the highest ever BBL total of 273/2.

If Hobart Hurricanes were to beat this total they'd also have to set a new record, and it just wasn't going to happen.

Although a great innings, Ben McDermott (55) standing out, they were comfortably beaten by 106 runs.
