Stoinis smashes highest individual scorer in BBL

155

SYDNEY
Australian all-rounder Marcus Stoinis sets a new record by playing the biggest individual innings in the Big Bash League history.
The right-handed batsman scored 147 off 79 balls which included a galore of boundaries comprising of eight sixes and thirteen fours, breaking D’Arcy Short record of 122. He along with Hilton Cartwright also broke a record of highest partnership ever in the history of the tournament. Previously the record was with Rob Quinney and Luke Wright of 172. In the match, the Melbourne Stars batted first and scored 219 for one wicket in the twenty overs. The Sydney Sixers team couldn’t chase the target of 220 runs and finished on 175 for the loss of seven wickets, and the Melbourne Stars won the match by 44 runs.
Stoinis told Channel Seven after his innings: “That’s just the most fun you can ever have in the world.” It meant the Stars’ in-form captain Glenn Maxwell faced just two balls for the innings as they posted the third highest total in BBL history. Hilton Cartwright played a critical hand making 59 from 40 in a supporting role that won high praise from his skipper for holding his nerve given Stoinis dominated the strike.
