Five Thunder stars head to UAE

Sydney Thunder’s Chris Green has joined the Multan Sultans in the Pakistan Super League as the team part ways after their season ended on Saturday night.

The spinning allrounder has enjoyed another solid BBL season in green, finishing with eight wickets at an economy of 6.89 and 176 runs at a strike rate 136.51.

Green joins the Sultans as a replacement player for Qais Ahmad but will be available for the entire tournament as a Silver category player.

Yet to make his debut in his first two PSL seasons, in-form Green is hopeful that it will be third time lucky.

"I'm looking forward to getting my first opportunities to play over there. The last two years I've gone close to playing [with Lahore and then Quetta], but this year I'd love to showcase what I've been doing in the BBL, the Caribbean Premier League and T10 League,” Green told the Sydney Morning Herald.

"I put a lot of hard work into my game over the last few years, particularly with the bat.

"To execute what I've wanted to was a real positive. I've always seen myself as an all-rounder, and to prove that to myself a lot more at Big Bash level, I was really proud with what I was able to achieve.''

Fawad Ahmed (Quetta Gladiators), Anton Devcich (Lahore Qalandars), Chris Jordan (Peshawar Zalmi) and Shane Watson (Quetta Gladiators) will join Green in the UAE for the tournament, which is set to begin on 14 February.

The rest of the squad will switch their focus back to red-ball cricket with the Futures League and Sheffield Shield competitions, except for Usman Khawaja and Pat Cummins who have been named in Australia’s ODI squad to travel to India at the end of February.
