Unbeaten duo the Melbourne Stars and Adelaide Strikers come together for a bumper BBL showdown on the Gold Coast.
The Stars are 2-0, with Glenn Maxwell (83 off 39) leading them to a 22-run victory over the Heat at Carrara first up.
Marcus Stoinis (81* off 54) and man-of-the-match Haris Rauf (5/27) took the reins as Melbourne pumped the Hurricanes by 52 runs on Sunday.
The Strikers’ first game against the Thunder was declared a no result due to bushfire smoke in Canberra. But they were perhaps fortunate after reaching 5/161, headlined by Jonathan Wells (55* off 32). The Thunder were flying in reply and needed just four more balls to be bowled for a D/L win.
Adelaide shrugged off any controversy with a 15-run home defeat of the Scorchers in an 18-over clash on Monday. Blistering knocks from Jake Weatherald (83 off 47) and Alex Carey (55 off 24) steered the Strikers to 4/198.
