SIX! BAM! GAME OVER! The Stars have finished the match with a flurry, dispatching the Renegades yet again. Glenn Maxwell, take a bow!

NOT OUT! Full ball on middle and leg, Maxwell pushes it back past the bowler and looks for a couple. Larkin obliges and heads towards the non-striker's end. The throw comes in and Christian whips the bails off. Puts in a muted appeal and the umpire refers it upstairs. Replays roll in and show that he is well in.
