Cricket by Candlelight – BBL on Xmas Eve
Sydney Thunder wicket keeper Jay Lenton admits his family will miss him this Christmas Eve, but it’s a price he’s willing to play to be part of the Sydney Big Bash League Derby the night before Christmas.
“It’s going to be bit different for the road trip up to the Central Coast but it’ll be a great thing to head out and see.”
Lenton will be battling to get the job with the gloves given England superstar Jos Buttler will again be at the Thunder this BBL season.
“He’s probably the best white ball player I think in the world.”
Lenton spoke with Julian King about the innovative scheduling.
