McKay, Hussey take Stars to semis:

Melbourne Stars have earned a spot in the semi-finals, knocking Brisbane
Heat out of fourth place with a comfortable six-wicket win over
Adelaide Strikers at the MCG.

The Stars' pace attack did most of the damage on a tacky MCG deck with
Man of the Match Clint McKay leading the way, taking 3 for 17 off his
four overs, including the key wickets of opening pair Daniel Harris and
Michael Klinger.

The Strikers failed to live up to their moniker, struggling to strike
the ball cleanly throughout the innings, managing just four boundaries
and one six. Callum Ferguson's 41 off just 29 balls was the only
resistance for the visitors as they were bundled out for 125, the last
six wickets falling for just 25 runs.

The hosts got off to a shaky start in reply, losing Rob Quiney to a
brilliant bit of fielding from Nathan Lyon off his own bowling, taking
the ball cleanly and flicking the ball back at the stumps to catch
Quiney short of his ground.

And when New Zealand import James Franklin and former Victoria spinner
Bryce McGain struck in consecutive overs, the Strikers were in with a
chance - the Stars stumbling to 3 for 38 off seven overs.

Out of form Stars captain Cameron White - who had made just 13 runs in
his previous six innings - strode to the crease with the game on the
line and finally found the middle of the bat, working his way to 28
before hauling out on the boundary with just 24 runs to get.

Despite some tight bowling from Striker's spin pair Nathan Lyon (20
runs off 3.5 overs) and Aaron O'Brien (12 runs off his four overs),
David Hussey (41 off 36 balls) guided the hosts to victory with seven
balls to spare.

The Stars' win means they will travel to Perth to play the Scorchers on
Saturday, while the Hurricanes will host the Sixers on Sunday.
