Twitter Reactions: Colin Munro’s incredible knock in vain as Sydney Thunder pip Brisbane Heat in thriller

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

Chasing the huge target of 183, the Heat batters seemed completely out of touch and fired at regular intervals. However opener Colin Munro had other plans as he played one of the best BBL punches to keep Heat in the game.

Munro took the game to its limits and kept his end alive until the finals were over as he approached a triple digit mark. But alas, the left-handed batter, trying to clear the mid-wicket Nathan MacAndrewfailed to time the ball and Daniel Sams took a sensational outfield catch to send Munro off. The Black Caps batsman eventually scored 98 off just 53 balls using nine fours and three sixes. In the end, Thunder won the game by 11 runs.

Previously, 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) came in with key hits before Sams gave the late bloom to push Thunder over 180.

Sams played an unbeaten run 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, taking a haul of four wickets while giving away 22 runs in his 4 overs quota.
