    While talking about the ongoing T20 Big Bash League, Sam Billings not available for the remainder of the tournament will be a huge blow for the Sydney Thunder as he is the leading run-getter for his team so far. Billings has smashed a brilliant total of 255 runs in just 7 matches at an average of 42.50 and also with an amazing strike-rate of 154.55.
