In a dramatic match, Sydney Thunder defeated Melbourne Stars by one wicket.
Such controversy to begin the BBL season.
Thunder barely made it by one wicket off the last delivery, despite the fact that 123 didn’t seem like a terribly challenging score.
And Sandhu, who made a surprise debut and struck a key blow in the last over, helped them win.
With that pitch, no hitter had it easy, and Alex Ross’s 28 off 27 balls were the highest individual total of the night.
The seamers particularly loved jogging with their cutters, especially Farooqui, Sams, and Sandhu for the Thunder and Coulter-Nile and Boult for the Stars.
The substitute Brody Couch made a couple remarkable catches throughout the chase.
Zampa achieved the 100th BBL triumph.
