Australian all-rounder Chris Green has signed a six-year deal with Sydney Thunders in BBL. It is the longest deal in the history of the Big Bash League. Previously, Chris Lynn, the top-order right-handed batsman of Australia, had signed a deal spanning five years with Brisbane in BBL. Now, Chris Green has come up with the commitment of the longest deal beating Chris Lynn. Ahead of the fourth season of BBL, Chris Green first joined thunders in 2014.
Green said, “The Thunder was the first team that backed me when I was playing grade cricket, so to lock in my future with the club is really exciting, It’s not often you have security, so for me to get that with a club that I love, I’m really excited and very grateful for this opportunity to continue to represent Thunder into the future.”
Chris Green proved himself as a T20 specialist. He rarely participates in overseas leagues like T10 League, CPL, Canada’s Global T20, PSL, etc. He has been given assurance of being part of Australia’s plans for the T20I World Cup by the selectors.
Green said, “They told me if there wasn’t a World Cup coming up they’d probably advise me differently, to come back and push my case in state cricket, It was really great to get that feedback from the Australian selectors, and reassurance they are watching while I’m abroad and that they are taking notice of these tournaments.”
