Sydney Thunder duo Chris Green and Daniel Sams are continuing to impress in Canada’s Global T20 League.


Green made a successful debut for the Toronto Nationals last week, taking 3/33 to help his side claim their first win of the tournament.

He has continued to make an impact, taking 2/40 in his second game before claiming player of the match honours with an impressive all-round performance today.

Green claimed two key wickets and scored an unbeaten 30 runs as the Nationals defeated the Montreal Tigers.

He has now taken seven wickets in three matches.

Sams was also awarded player of the match today after claiming 4/25 in his second match for the Vancouver Knights.

The star-studded side includes former Thunder Nation stars Chris Gayle and Andre Russell.

Sams recently re-committed to Sydney Thunder after a brilliant debut season that saw him finish as the club’s leading wicket-taker.

The second season of the GT20 League began on 25 July, featuring 22 matches and culminating in finals on 11 August.

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.

Memberships are on sale now, with flexible 2-Game Memberships starting from just $45 and Full Season Memberships available from $80.
