The Hobart Hurricanes chased down their target which was almost ruined. Needing 132 against the Stars, they were at a comfortable 94 for 1 in the 12th over at home. Caleb Jewell had scored 70 off 44 balls in those 94 runs when he departed with the Hurricanes almost stacked. Tim David fell on his own bat as he was run out and the rest of the middle order disappeared to the extent of indiscriminate shots. No. 10 Nathan Ellis, captaining in place of the absent Matthew Wade, walked out with three needed in the 18th over and finally got the job done, although the winning runs also came from a thick inside edge. However, after that alarm, it was a good few days for the Hurricanes after getting back-to-back wins with a win over the Thunder.
