Find out how Thunder's squad is shaping up for BBL|11 as contracting begins

Last week's announcement of the KFC BBL|11 schedule also saw the League lift the player contracting embargo that had been in place since last season's finish.

Newly appointed Sydney Thunder BBL List Manager, Tim Cruinshank, is now able to get straight to work to complete the club's list for the season, including securing the signatures of up to three international players in the 18-player squad.

BBL|11 squad (so far): Jonathan Cook, Ben Cutting, Matt Gilkes, Chris Green, Usman Khawaja, Nathan McAndrew, Alex Ross, Daniel Sams, Tanveer Sangha, Chris Tremain. 

BBL|10 players off contract: Sam Billings (ENG), Oliver Davies, Brendan Doggett, Alex Hales (ENG), Baxter Holt, Adam Milne (NZ), Arjun Nair, Jason Sangha.

Thunder's biggest off-season move so far has been to secure World Cup-winning coach Trevor Bayliss, who is well-placed to leverage his international connections.

Who do you want to see in green this summer, Thunder Nation?
