Sydney Thunder vs Brisbane Heat: As it happened

The Sydney Thunder dominated the Brisbane Heat in the best Thunder performance in over three seasons of Big Bash action. But fast bowler Gurinder Sandhu says this does not mean it will be smooth sailing for the rest of the tournament.

For Sandhu the season will be won on weekly performances.  “It was a great win,” Sandhu said. “We’re feeling good at the moment getting a good win out of the way and hopefully we have another good couple of training sessions this week and get another win against the Sixers and then we’ll keep going from there.”

After three seasons of heartache for the fans in lime green watching their side succumb to the wooden spoon in all three years, the perennial Big Bash underachievers finally gave their supporters reason to cheer on Sunday night.

They cruised to a 56-run victory over the Heat after a 160-run opening stand from Thunder veterans Mike Hussey and Jacques Kallis. They scored the bulk of an extremely competitive 208-run total, the equal fouth-highest total in Big Bash history.

“It was nice to watch Jacques and Huss get a few runs at the top of the order,” Sandhu said. “It was good just relaxing out on the bench, watching the show. It’s always good to get a few wickets and contribute to the win.”

On Saturday night the Thunder side go into battle with cross-town rivals the Sydney Sixers. “I think it will be a great game, the Sydney derby,” Sandhu said. “You know it could be anyone’s day on the day, so we just have to turn up and go through the processes and do our thing and hopefully we can come away with the result. Hopefully we can get them out early and go from there.”

Former Proteas all-rounder Kallis is the first player to hit 10,000 runs and take 200 wickets in both Tests and ODI matches – and although he has not had the chance yet, Sandhu is looking forward to picking the brains of the all-rounder.

“Haven’t learnt much from Jacques at the moment because I haven’t had a chance to talk to him much yet,” he said.

“Hopefully the next few sessions, I get in and ask him about batting and how he bats and, obviously he’s an all-rounder, so ask him about bowling as well.”
