Trent Boult enjoyed a great night at the Perth Stadium for Melbourne Stars against Perth Scorchers. However, the team lost the match but Boult was on the charge of some animated batting display.

With his flashing batting style, Trent Boult made his best score at any level in Twenty20 cricket through a total of 44 innings when he came in at No. 10 with the Stars in disarray at 86/8. Boult smashed an unbeaten 23 runs off only 16 balls with a trio of sixes, including two off successive Ashton Agar deliveries.

The 33-year-old helped his team reach 135 when it looked like that team will not cross three figures. Unfortunately for Melbourne Stars, Perth Scorchers very easily  chased down the target with four wickets and 15 balls to spare. For the Stars, Hilton Cartwright shared the ninth-wicket stand with Boult of 49 from 35 balls, the highest partnership of the innings.

Boult averages 6.40 runs and has a top score of 8 in Twenty20 international matches. Now, he has some decent under his belt for a T20 match. Stars’coach David Hussey told that Boult has a sense of belief in his batting and he can hit the slower balls a long way.

Third overall in the draught, he is now making his debut with the Melbourne Stars after requesting his release from his NZ Cricket central contract in August. At Perth’s Optus Stadium, he failed to pick up a wicket while bowling, giving up 14 runs in three overs. So far, he hasn’t been as successful with ball in hand as the Stars expected him to be.

With just one victory in their previous five games, the outcome sees the Stars plummet to second-bottom in the tournament standings above Brisbane Heat.

While all was going on, Brisbane Heat’s outstanding batting performance by Kiwi starter Colin Munro wasn’t enough to save them from another loss.

At Carrara Oval, the former New Zealander scored 98 off only 53 balls when on the other side, the Heat kept losing wickets. Batting first, Sydney Thunder chase down their total of 182/6, smashing three sixes and nine fours while maintaining a strike rate of 185.

But the Aucklander was powerless to stop his teammates from collapsing around him; just one other batter reached double digits.

He finally left the game in the last over, leaving the Heat in last position 11 runs short of their mark at 171/9.
