The remarkable knock was played by all-rounder Daniel Sams, who literally snatched the match from Brisbane Heat on the back of his tremendous hard-hitting.

Sydney Thunder started off chasing 179 runs very poorly. Alex Hales returned to the pavilion at 0 on the second ball. Captain Ferguson could not even open the account. After this, Usman Khawaja and Alex Ross scored some quick runs but Khwaja also became the victim of Wildermuth.
Ross scored 34, Holt 23 and Ben Cutting scored 29 runs, but despite this, Brisbane’s team dominated the match. But then suddenly there came the storm of Daniel Sams. The right-handed batsman completed his half-century in just 23 balls, hitting amazing sixes and fours. Sams hammered 5 sixes and 3 fours to reach his fifty. After this, he hit two more sixes.
Daniel Sams won the match for Sydney by hitting 4 sixes off Ben Laughlin’s over. Sydney Thunder needed 24 runs in the last two overs and Brisbane captain Chris Lynn handed over the ball to fast bowler Laughlin. But Lin’s decision did not go in favor of his team.
