Stars' Marcus Stoinis Blasts Record BBL Score

Siddle shines after Wells and Short stand as Strikers sink Renegades

The 30-year-old Stoinis thrashed another record with the help of Hilton Cartwright as they both formed a 207-run partnership, highest-ever in the tournament. In the end, visitors' scored 175 runs for a loss of seven wickets that forced them to suffer a defeat by a margin of 44 runs.

He took 26 off a Tom Curran over and then in the 19th over he absolutely dispatched poor Ben Dwarshuis for 24 off the over.

It was also the highest partnership for any wicket in BBL history. This is the also the highest that the Sixers conceded going past the 209/4 by Brisbane Heat earlier this season.

Perhaps irked by his duck in the Melbourne derby against the Renegades two days ago, Stoinis carried his bat in a wonderful unbeaten 147 - the highest score ever in the Big Bash League.

During the 35th match of the ongoing ninth season of the Big Bash League between Melbourne Stars and Sydney Sixers in Melbourne, Melbourne Stars opening batsman Marcus Stoinis registered his maiden T20 century to propel his team to 219/1 in 20 overs. Aaron Finch also faced 79 balls for his unbeaten 131 for Surrey in the 2018 T20 Blast against Sussex.

100 - Marcus Stoinis scored 100 of his 147 runs through boundaries; the first player to aggregate 100 boundary runs in a BBL inning. Stoinis' knock was laced with 13 boundaries and eight sixes.

With this win, Stars consolidated their position on top in the table. Luke Wright hit as many as 9 sixes during his 117-run inning against the Hobart Hurricanes in 2011-12. The Melbourne Stars opener generally bats down the order in the Indian Premier League and is effective with the ball during the middle overs as well. Stoinis may be the greatest run-scorer in in 2010 associated with the Big Bash.

Melbourne Stars will play against Perch Scorchers in their next BBL fixture on 15 January, 2020.
