That brings an end to our coverage of today's double header. Both the teams from Melbourne ended on the winning side, so it calls for a party in the city of Melbourne tonight. Join us tomorrow for the contest between Sydney Sixers and Hobart Hurricanes. Goodbye folks!

Man of the Match, Jackson Coleman: It was fantastic, just one of those nights where everything seemed to go our way. Our preparations have been awesome, it was a good night. It's been frustrating missing the first chunk of the tournament, hopefully I can make an impact towards the business end. It was good that things went the right way. He's (Stoinis) been in fantastic form and hits the ball so well..

20:53 Local Time, 12:53 GMT, 18:23 IST: Melbourne Stars stretch their win tally to 9 with this comprenhensive victory. Scorchers were outplayed in all three departments by the Stars tonight. It's the bowlers who need to be given a round of applause though. They choked the Scorchers right throughout the innings and as a result of the pressure, they managed to bowl out the opposition for 86 - the lowest total of this season. With such a paltry target to be chased down, Stars batsmen were never under pressure. Marcus Stoinis notched up the 500-run mark this season and anchored the innings as Stars managed to get over the line with 8 overs to spare.

12.1 Mitchell Marsh to Seb Gotch, 5 wides, Melbourne Stars win by 8 wickets and 48 balls to spare. Seb Gotch shimmies down the wicket to play this, but a rather frustrated Marsh fires this one down the leg side. Not only does it beat the batsman's flick, but it also goes past the keeper's dive. Five wides to end the match and that sums up Scorchers' night
