Fast bowler Gurinder Sandhu says he feels like he is returning home after agreeing a deal with the Sydney Thunder for the new Big Bash League campaign.

The Thunder are priced at 10/3 to win the Big Bash League and are delighted to get the 28-year-old pace bowler back in their ranks.

Back home

Sandhu's BBL career began with the Thunder but he did spend BBL10 with cross-city rivals the Sydney Sixers, helping them win the title. But now he is back in green and says it feels great.

"Anytime I think of home I do think of the Thunder, it's awesome to be back here," he told the Thunder website. "Family, friends, it's where everyone's from for me, personally.

"If I think of home I think of Western Sydney, if I think of western Sydney, I think of home, I think of Sydney Thunder I think of home – it's all coming together very nicely.

"It feels awesome. This is where my Big Bash journey started in BBL02. I'm very, very excited."

Top form

The Thunder are gaining a fast bowler who is in top form after impressing for Queensland in the Sheffield Shield.

"I'm 28 and coming into [what's the] peak time for most cricketers. I'm set and primed and ready to go," Sandhu added.

Meanwhile Thunder coach Trevor Bayliss is also delighted to have him.

"I know Gurinder is happy to be home, he's very passionate about the Thunder Nation," said Bayliss. "He's done extremely well for Queensland this summer, and everyone knows he's determined to do the same for Thunder."
