Siddle shines after Wells and Short stand as Strikers sink Renegades

Stoinis, who will turn out for the Delhi Capitals in the upcoming season of the IPL, smashed 13 fours and eight sixes during his knock.

Meanwhile, Stoinis and his opening partner Hilton Cartwright posted 207 runs for the opening stand, which is the highest partnership in the BBL. Ben Dwarshuis scored an unbeaten 17-ball 42 at the end to push the Sixers to 175/7.

Stoinis then broke another individual record, hitting the highest individual score in Big Bash history. This is the also the highest that the Sixers conceded going past the 209/4 by Brisbane Heat earlier this season.

Melbourne Stars are top of the Big Bash League with 14 points from their eight games.

Marcus Stoinis on Sunday registered the highest individual score in Big Bash League (BBL) history here on Sunday. They managed to score 54 in the first six, which was higher than the Hurricanes' 2 for 48 in that record chase, with both Vince and Henriques set. The Melbourne Stars player apologized after being found guilty of breaching Cricket Australia's code of conduct and penalised AUD 7,500 (USD 5,200). Time and again he sat back and clubbed shorter length balls to and over the rope.

Cartwright scored 59 runs before Tom Curran gold hold if him in the final over of the innings. The former muscled 41 runs off 25 balls with four boundaries and two sixes whereas latter scored 32 runs. Thus, the Melbourne Stars comfortably won by 44 runs. Luke Wright hit as many as 9 sixes during his 117-run inning against the Hobart Hurricanes in 2011-12.

Stoinis' maiden Twenty20 hundred took the Stars to a mammoth 1-219 after being sent in to bat by the Sixers. 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 is also now the leading run-scorer in the ongoing tournament.
