RIS­ING cricket star Gurinder Sandhu in­sists he is more than ready for his fourth sea­son play­ing in the Big Bash League with Sydney Thun­der tomorrow.

The 22-year-old has stepped up his train­ing and played in a trial match at How­ell Oval in Pen­rith on Satur­day.

The fast bowler, who was raised in Minchinbury, helped se­cure the win for the Thun­der Black side with fig­ures of 2-28.

It has been a busy lead up to the sea­son for Sandhu who played for NSW in the Sh­effield Cup be­fore re­turn­ing to a Thun­der train­ing camp last week.

Sandhu said he had been train­ing hard.

“I have been in Thun­der camp for the past week. We don’t get much time lead­ing into the Big Bash but train­ing has been really good,” he said.

Sandhu said he hoped this sea­son would be the most suc­cess­ful for the Thun­der.

Sydney Thun­der will go up against the Sydney Six­ers at Spot­less Sta­dium, Sydney Olympic Park on Thurs­day night.

“I al­ways look for­ward to all the Big Bash games but es­pe­cially look for­ward to the games against the Six­ers,” he said.

“The year ahead looks very good but then again you never know un­til you start play­ing games … hope­fully we start off on Thurs­day with a win.”
