The 19th match of the ongoing Big Bash League (BBL) 2022-23, Sydney Thunder defeated Brisbane Heat in a nail-biting thriller at Carrara Oval in Queensland on Thursday.

Chasing the massive target of 183, the Heat batters looked completely out of touch and kept getting dismissed at regular intervals. However, opener Colin Munro had some other plans as he played one of the finest BBL knocks to keep Heat in the game.

Munro took the game to the wire and kept his end alive until the final over when he was approaching a triple-figure mark. But unfortunately, the left-handed batter, in an attempt to clear the mid-wicket off Nathan McAndrew, failed to time the ball and Daniel Sams took a sensational outfield catch to dismiss Munro. The Black Caps batter ended up scoring 98 from just 53 balls with the help of nine fours and three sixes. Eventually, Thunder won the contest by 11 runs.

Earlier, Heat won the toss and asked the Thunder to bat first. Some vital contributions from batters inspired Thunder to reach a competitive total. Opener Matthew Gilkes (37), Rilee Rossouw (39) and Alex Ross (25) chipped in with important knocks before Sams provided the late flourish to push Thunder over 180.

Sams played an unbeaten knock of 36 from just 15 deliveries, including 2 fours and 4 sixes, as Thunder made 182/6 in their allotted 20 overs. For the Heat, James Bazley was the star of the evening, picking a four-wicket haul while giving away 22 runs in his quota of 4 overs.
