Sydney Thunder poach talented all-rounder from Sixers

Daniel Sams burst onto the Big Bash League scene last summer by taking 4/14 on debut for the Sydney Sixers against the Sydney Thunder.

So impressed were the Thunder, they signed him up for this summer.

Sams told Julian King that while he’s excited to get a start at the Thunder, he doesn’t want to be pigeon-holed as just a T20 player.

“I’m still wanting to play 4 day, 5 day cricket. I really enjoy grinding it out in the longer format. I’m still pushing hard to play State cricket.”

Better known as a bowling all-rounder, Sams is keen to show off his big hitting skills as well.

“Hopefully I get the chance to show what I can do with the bat and let it all happen out of the middle.”
