Thunder Captain Chris Green Stands Firm as Sydney Commits to BBL 2023-24

1 min read

The Sydney Thunder wants to continue playing at their western Sydney home despite criticism over the quality of the Sydney Showground wicket from former cricketer Ricky Ponting. The Scorchers were able to limit the Thunder to 137 for 8 and reached their target with five balls to spare. The low run-rate at the Showground is a concern and has led some to question whether the Thunder should permanently move to Canberra. However, the team has no plans to leave western Sydney, with a possibility of increasing games in the region. Thunder captain Chris Green disagrees with the criticism of the Showground pitch, stating that it’s better than many other wickets and that it just requires better adaptation by the players. He also emphasized the importance of playing at their home ground.
