KP has faced 23 balls and scored 34 runs, but what has been even more impressive is the fact that he has just faced three dot balls. Stars now need 46 from 39 balls.
...
Stars look set to make history and reach the final for the first time. Scorchers need to get KP out quickly and now they cannot call on their premier fast bowler, Behrendorff as he just finished his four overs for 28 runs.

SIX! Cameron Bancroft hits a ball high into the air, it was almost a wicket but Rob Quiney catches the ball but steps on and over the rope to give a much-needed six for the Scorchers.

WICKET! Hilfenhaus with a brilliant yorker that cannons into the leg stump. Agar tries to walk across his stumps and flick it away but misses the ball.

Almost another wicket as Ashton Agar smashes one through the off-side, where David Hussey almost pulls off a blinder. But he doesn't and the Scorchers run 2. Scorchers 120/5 in 18
