With a last-minute SOS to Pakistan required for Mohammad Hafeez just so they could field a full team, the Stars became the first team to go unbeaten through a BBL preliminary series with a comfortable 20-run win over Perth at the MCG.
The result consigned the Scorchers to third and a trip to the SCG for next week’s second semi-final against the Sixers.
