Melbourne Stars crashed out of the BBL 2020-21 following a defeat in the hands of Sydney Sixers in the last league game of the tournament. Skipper Glenn Maxwell led the charge with a 41-ball 66 while Hilton Cartwright’s 38* off 19 balls lifted the Stars to 177/6. James Vince scored a 32-ball 46 to clinch the Bash Boost for the Sixers by which the Stars got eliminated. Later, the hopes of a consolation win for the Stars got washed away as Jordon Silk (35* off 25) and Daniel Christian (49* off 23) sealed a 5-wicket win with an unbeaten 77-run stand.
Here are all the statistical highlights from Sydney Sixers’ thrilling win during the STA vs SIX game:

Philippe’s record behind the stumps:
