Lasith Malinga produced a bowling master class to help the Melbourne Stars seal a comprehensive 10 wicket Duckworth Lewis victory over the Perth Scorchers at the WACA in Perth.

Malinga (6-7) picked up six wickets at the WACA as the Sri Lankan tore through the home sides line up to leave the Stars facing a run chase of just 70 to record their first victory of the tournament.

Luke Wright (23) got the run chase off to a rapid start after he smashed Joe Mennie for 18 runs during the second over of the Stars innings but heavy rain forced the players off the field an over later.

Play got back underway an hour later with one ball bowled before the players left the fields with the Stars ahead of the require run rate to record their first victory of the tournament.
