Runs For Khawaka, Farrell and Gibson as Green Extends CPL stint

Sydney Thunder all-rounder has extended his spell in the Caribbean Premier League until the end of the season. Green was due to play just four games for the Guyana Amazon Warriors but will now replace Shoaib Malik who has returned to Pakistan to prepare for the Asian Cup.

Green has taken five wickets at an economy rate of 6.5 as well as scoring an unbeaten 25 against St Kitts and Nevis Patriots.

Leg-spinner Fawad Ahmed took two wickets for the Trinbago Knight Riders as they beat the Barbados Tridents by 4 wickets with 21 balls remaining.

Not quite the West Indies, but the NSW Blues team played three inter-squad practice games in Blacktown ahead of the JLT One Day Cup which commences in the next few weeks. Several Sydney Thunder players were involved with Daniel Sams taking 2-39 in the first game while former Academy players Jason Sangha scored 46 and Param Uppal took 3-47.



In the second game Ryan Gibson scoring 101 not out while Nathan McAndrew who has been part of Thunder’s past three squads took 1-40. In the final game Gibson made another half century.

In Queensland the NSW Breakers also played three games with Naomi Stalenberg making 48 and taking two wickets against Victory in the first days play before making an unbeaten 22 from 16 balls two days later against South Australia while Maisy Gibson took 4-40. In the final game against Queensland Rene Farrell claimed 2-26 from her seven overs with the ball and then scored 59 from 70 balls. The Breakers then dismissed Queensland for 142 with Nicola Carey best of the bowlers. She returned 3-23 from 7.4 overs. The Breakers begin their defence of the WNCL title against Queensland on 21 September.



In India Usman Khawaja made an 101 not out before Jack Wildermuth hit a final ball six to help Australia A beat India B to reach the final of the One Day Quad Series. Khawaja’s 101 came from 93 balls and included 10 fours and two sixes.
