The Melbourne Stars will play in their their fifth consecutive Big Bash League semi-final tonight, a rare feat in this highly competitive and sometimes unpredictable tournament.
As Official Equipment Suppliers for the Stars, Spartan have enjoyed supporting the Melbourne franchise throughout their season. After the Stars lost their first two games of the competition, many wondered whether the talented line-up would qualify for the knock-out stages.
However after the early stumble the Stars would go on to win four consecutive games, in which they provided some of the most memorable moments of this season’s Big Bash League.
Some standouts include Luke Wright’s blistering 109* in front of a record-breaking crowd at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, where over 80,000 people witnessed a thrilling victory.
Adam Zampa’s impossible run-out lit up social media and last Friday’s massive win over the Perth Scorchers saw a dominant Stars bowling unit tear through the defending champions.
After finishing second on the ladder, the Stars now enjoy the luxury of playing a home semi-final in front of a massive crowd at the Melbourne Cricket Ground Friday tonight, where they will have to defeat the Scorchers again to qualify for Sunday’s final.
Spartan is proud to continually support the Stars as they gear up for another exciting match.
