Perth Scorchers batsman Michael Carberry smashed 50 runs and pace bowler Andrew Tye took four wickets to not only beat the Melbourne Stars by 18 runs, but also help their side reach the finals for the fourth consecutive time.

Scorchers captain Adam Voges would have been brooding over his decision to bat first after Michael Klinger and he himself were dismissed in quick succession.

Shaun Marsh and Carberry stabilised the innings with a 68-run partnership before Marsh was caught by Jackson Bird at long-off off the bowling of Michael Beer for 35.

Ashton Turner only made one run before he was caught behind off the bowling of Scott Boland.

Carberry ended up making 50 off 36 balls, which included six boundaries and a six, before he was caught by John Hastings at long-off off the bowling of Beer.

Sam Whiteman mustered 18 runs before he was caught by Peter Handscomb at square leg off the bowling of Clint McKay.

Nathan Coulter-Nile made a quickfire 22 before he was caught behind off the bowling of Hastings.

Thanks to Carberry, the Scorchers finished on 144/7 off their 20 overs.

Hastings was the pick of the bowlers with three wickets, while Beer snapped up two and McKay and Boland chipped in with one wicket apiece.

Chasing 145 to win, the Stars never really got out of the starting blocks as many of their batsmen made starts, but failed to convert it into bigger scores.

Luke Wright and Kevin Pietersen were the Stars’ top-scorers as they both made 31 runs.

Tye was the most successful bowler with four wickets, while Coulter-Nile and Yasir Arafat took two wickets each and Jason Behrendorff claimed one as the Stars were bowled out for 126.

Tye was named Man of the Match for his brilliant bowling figures.
