Daniel Sams and Alex Hales’ hard-hitting against the Melbourne Renegades ensured a 129-run thumping victory for the visitors and also gave them a second spot in the BBL|11 table.

Sams, however, couldn’t complete the first century of his professional career as he fell short and he and Hales completely battered the Renegades’ bowlers.

Only a six remained to be hit but Sams could only hit a four and notched up his career-best score of 98 not out off 44 balls.

His partner Alex Hales also got a score of 63 off 28 as the pair put on a humongous score of 209/7 for the hosts to chase.

The Renegades, in reply, failed to marshal their innings as they saw a quick collapse and staggered at 46/6 after 6.5 overs and were packed up at a paltry score of 80 in just 14.2 overs.

Mohammad Hasnain (3-23) again became a star for his team as he dismissed the last two wickets of James Seymour (25) and Zahir Khan (0) and took his tally to six wickets in just two games.

Sams was promoted to no.4 after the departure of Sam Billings to England and he did not let go of the opportunity as he smashed eight sixes and seven fours in his innings.

Renegades’ batters Sam Harper, Nic Maddinson, and Mackenzie Harvey became victims of catches while Shaun Marsh was run-out.

Aaron Finch and Shaun Marsh tried to steady the ship of the Renegades but after both of them departed, it was a total batting collapse for them.

Finch was completely taken aback by a delivery from Tanveer Sangha (2-12).

It was an even more impressive win for Sydney Thunder, considering their captain Chris Green isolating because of COVID and Saqib Mahmood recalled back to England.

Thunder will next face Hobart Hurricanes on Monday.
