Fresh from signing the longest deal in Sydney Thunder history, Chris Green has put in some impressive performances for his Northern Warriors side in the Abu Dhabi T10 League.
Overnight, Green took 3-8 from two overs as his Northern Warriors side defeated the Delhi Bulls by six wickets.
Green claimed the wickets of the top three Delhi batters, all bowled, in an impressive showing with the ball ahead of BBL|09.
Green has taken six wickets in four matches so far in his T10 campaign, at an average of 11.16.
The Thunder vice-captain also enjoyed strong outings in the Caribbean Premier League and Vitality T20 Blast earlier this year.
Previous to this he featured for the Toronto Nationals in the Global T20 Canada, where he took 11 wickets in five games to finish as the tournament’s second leading wicket taker.
Earlier this week, Green signed the longest deal in Thunder history, with the club announcing a six-year commitment which will tie him to western Sydney's KFC Big Bash League team until the end of BBL|13.
Speaking on his new deal with the club, Green said the support and opportunities he has found at the Thunder has helped him take his game to a new level.
“Thunder put me on the map and provided a platform for me to showcase my skills and contribute to the team’s success and as a result, that’s let me travel the world playing the sport I love,” said Green.
“Within the Thunder set-up, I’ve had opportunities to learn from some of the best in the business.
“I was very fortunate to get to play and win a trophy alongside my idol Jacques Kallis in BBL|04 and BBL|05.
“I still work closely with Mike Hussey as one of my mentors from a leadership and cricket point of view. He’s been an amazing help to me with my development and we’re constantly in touch.
“I’m very fortunate to have had access to high quality players, people and leaders who have helped me grow into the player, person and leader I am today.”
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.
