Pietersen stars for Melbourne in big bash

ENGLAND exile Kevin Pietersen struck his second half-century of the Big Bash campaign to steer Melbourne Stars to a super-over victory against Michael Lumb-inspired Sydney Sixers yesterday. Pietersen smashed eight fours and a six in his 37-ball 50, while his knock of 54 helped the Stars post 150-6 after former England batsman Lumb smashed 80.
