Last week Wednesday evening, at the Basin Blast, saw the Melbourne Stars go on to defeat the Wellington Firebirds.
In a chase of 169 for victory, Luke Wright, Melbourne’s English import bludgeoned the attack of the Firebirds to all parts, as he went on to score 112 from 63 balls.
During his knock, Wright was able to clobber eight sixes and nine fours, all at an ease, even as a substantial crowd of spectators watched from the banks of the Basin Reserve.
From the start of the match, Wright was at his very best as he pushed on to give Melbourne a quick start into their chase of 169.
If he was not on hand to provide catching chances to those at the bank, he was out sending out such savage blows towards the base of the Museum Stand that seemed determined to check its structural integrity.
