Big Bash League (BBL) club, the Sydney Thunder, have announced the re-signing of Australian international Gurinder Sandhu on a two-year extension deal. 

Sandhu starred for the Thunder in BBL 11, picking 18 wickets, including a hat-trick against the Perth Scorchers. 

The 29-year-old paceman from New South Wales represented Australia in two One-Day Internationals (ODI) back in 2015, managing just three wickets. 

Sandhu, who won the BBL title with his former club Sydney Sixers, has been part of the league since the second edition and has picked up 61 wickets in as many matches. 

In line to appear in his ninth season with the Thunder, Sandhu said he feels more motivated than before and hopes to make an international comeback through BBL 12.

Here's what Sandhu said

"Doing well for Sydney Thunder is my main focus. I turned 29 in June and I’m coming into my peak. I know my body well; I have experienced a lot in the field and been through any number of scenarios. I feel as though I’m in a good spot, and I want to keep delivering for Thunder."

Head of Thunder Andrew Gilchrist welcomed Sandhu back into the set-up.

"He’s a genuine crowd favourite, and as a valued member of Thunder we look forward to seeing him achieve the goals he's set himself."

The Thunder play their first match of the upcoming BBL 2022-23 season against the Melbourne Stars on December 15.
