Sydney Thunder Playing 11: Sydney Thunder open their BBL 2021-22 campaign against Brisbane Heat this season. Sydney finished third on the points table last season, and were defeated in the qualifier by Brisbane Heat. Chris Green has been named the stand-in captain in the absence of Usman Khawaja who is on international duty.
Sydney Thunder have a powerful batting order which consists of the likes of Sam Billings, Alex Hales and Alex Ross. They have a well-balanced team, with enough firepower in their bowling department. Daniel Sams and Chris Tremain will be the pace bowlers for Thunder.
Tanveer Sangha and Chris Green will be the spin bowlers for Thunder in the first game of the season. Usman Khawaja is expected to join the squad after the conclusion of Ashes in January. Ben Cutting will be tasked with the duty to act as a finisher, and bowl a few crucial overs in the game.
