BBL 2020-21 – Daniel Sams returns to Sydney Thunder squad after concussion layoff


Ben Dwarshuis, who was out with a groin injury, included in Sydney Sixers squad, but might not be ready for action yet

Daniel Sams is set to return to the Sydney Thunder side in their derby fixture against the Sydney Sixers on Wednesday night in Canberra following a break because of concussion. Sams missed the Thunder’s last two games after being subbed out of the defeat against the Brisbane Heat under concussion protocols, but has been added to an enlarged 19-man squad for Wednesday’s game at Manuka Oval.

“He’s tracking really well,” Callum Ferguson, the Thunder captain, said. “He felt like he was really good and ready to play within a day or two of copping the head knock, but protocols don’t allow that. Obviously his health is the most important thing; not just now but in the long-term future.”

Ben Dwarshuis has also been included in the Sixers’ 18-man squad after missing the win against the Heat with a groin injury he picked up against the Perth Scorchers, though stand-in captain Daniel Hughes said that he was a doubt for Wednesday’s fixture.

“I think tomorrow might be a bit of a stretch but we’re not sure yet,” Hughes said. “He’s probably more likely to be ready for the game on Saturday against the Scorchers.”
