Sydney Thunder spinner Chris Green insists there are NO panic stations despite historic humiliation

Are you sure Chris? Sydney Thunder spinner Green insists there are NO panic stations despite historic humiliation in the Big Bash after posting the lowest score EVER in T20 history: “Life isn’t that bad. It’s just a loss.

The Sydney Thunder insist they will not press the panic button after a “crazy” night in which they suffered a humiliation of historic proportions against the Adelaide Strikers.

The Thunder were bowled out for 15 in just 35 balls as they chased 140 to win in their Big Bash League at the Sydney Showground Stadium on Friday night, the lowest score in the history of men’s T20 cricket.

Henry Thornton took five wickets for three runs and Wes Agar finished four for six as the Strikers left Sydney at 6-9 in the powerplay.

Tailender Brendan Doggett was the Thunder top-scorer with four, while another five players – including both openers – were dismissed for a duck.

The scorecard reverberated across the cricketing world, but Thunder spinner Chris Green has urged his teammates not to dwell on the crushing loss.

“There’s no point kicking the can about it,” he told the Sydney Morning Herald.

– We must continue to be positive. It is important that we stick together. Life is not so bad. It’s just a loss.

“It was a bit of a crazy night […] I think it’s important as a group to just see it as a loss and move on.

“It was definitely a crazy scorecard, but if we dwell on that loss we can read into it and try to find things that aren’t actually happening.”

Fortunately for the Thunder, the BBL’s tight schedule means they won’t have to wait long for their chance to bounce back when they face the Melbourne Renegades at Marvel Stadium on Sunday

“We’re looking forward to the opportunity to play tomorrow against Melbourne and an opportunity to bounce back against the Strikers in Adelaide on Tuesday,” Green said.

“No one was too upset last night. There are no panic stations or writing on the wall.

Thunder coach Trevor Bayliss struck a similar note, suggesting the Thunder needed to channel the pain of their embarrassing loss to Adelaide into something positive.

“It must make them more determined,” he said.

“You have to go into the next game determined to right the wrong. If we go into the next game thinking about what happened out there, it will take us longer to come out of it.
