It is a great honor for me to lead the Melbourne Stars in Glenn Maxwells absence. I look forward to helping the Stars bring out the best in the upcoming BBL 12 along with my group. The journey of our stars would not be complete without a BBL trophy and we look forward to giving it our all this season to clinch the title.
I am looking forward to playing alongside Trent Boult and Luke Wood for the first time. I cant wait to lead the Stars with the help of Marcus Stoinis as Vice-Captain. We would like to see as many fans as possible in our first match in BBL 2022-23 on 16th December at the MCG.
Jason Sangha has been appointed as the new captain of Sydney Thunder. The 23-year-old Australian spinner has replaced Usman Khawaja as the captain of Sydney Thunder, who left the club to join the Brisbane Heat ahead of the upcoming season.
Usman Khawaja will be seen leading the Brisbane Heat in the upcoming BBL 12. Let us tell you, David Warner will join Sydney Thunder for a short time in the upcoming BBL 2022-23, but during this time he was sure about taking the role, so Jason Sangha was handed over the captaincy.
