A controlled, match-winning innings from Australian international all-rounder, Nicola Carey, has guided the Hurricanes to a second successive win on the opening weekend of the rebel WBBL|05 season in Melbourne.
Wickets fell around the left-hander at the top of the Hurricanes batting order but Carey stood firm before accelerating at the right time with Saturday's match-winner, Chloe Tryon, at the other end.
The Hurricanes have now equalled last season's win tally on the first weekend of the summer.
Erin Fazackerley began the Hurricanes chase in typically quick fashion but the runs stalled and the pressure came in the middle overs, with the score at 5/73.
Tryon (29* from 18) was the perfect foil for the calm Carey (60* from 46 and 2/27 from four overs) as the pair put never looked too stressed at the crease and passed the total with 10 balls to spare.
With ball in hand, Belinda Vakarewa struck early once more and was the pick of the bowlers with 2/22 alongside Carey.
Spin twins Maisy Gibson and Heather Knight picked up one wicket each in an all-round team effort to restrict the Stars.
The Hurricanes return to Tasmania tonight before heading to Brisbane on Thursday for matches with the Heat and the Strikers next weekend.
Their first home matches come on November 1 and 2 in Burnie against the Sydney Thunder.
Hurricanes Memberships are on sale now, with flexible 2-Game Memberships starting from $45 and Full Season Memberships available from $99.
