Melbourne Stars 273/2 (20 ov)
Hobart Hurricanes 167/6 (20 ov)
Result - Melbourne Stars won by 106 runs.
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.
