Record day for Ferguson

Thunder skipper passes Darren Lehmann to become all time leading one-day run scorer for South Australia

Sydney Thunder captain Callum Ferguson has continued his stellar form with consecutive centuries for South Australia.

Following his Marsh One-Day Cup ton against Western Australia on Sunday, Ferguson did the business again for his state blasting 122 from 128 balls against Victoria at the MCG on Tuesday.

The innings had added significance for Ferguson, as he went ahead of Darren Lehmann to become the all-time leading one-day run scorer for South Australia.

It’s been a year to remember for Ferguson, who's career-best BBL|08 campaign saw him awarded the Mike Hussey Medal as Thunder's best player of the the tournament.

After crossing from the Melbourne Renegades, Ferguson’s BBL|07 campaign was hampered by thigh and hamstring injuries however he played all 14 matches in BBL|08.

The 34-year-old scored 442 runs at an average of 34 to finish as the fourth highest run scorer in the competition, as well as Thunder’s top scorer.

Playing with a relatively inexperienced batting line up at times, the classy No. 3 stood up to become the backbone of Thunder’s order.

Undoubtedly his best innings was his record-breaking century at Optus Stadium to help Thunder secure an important win over the Perth Scorchers.

 

Sydney Thunder is set to open its ninth KFC Big Bash League campaign against the Brisbane Heat at the Gabba on 17 December, before playing its first game in Sydney on 2 January.
