Top 5 bowling spells of all time in the Big Bash League
#4 Samuel Badree 5-22 for Brisbane Heat v Melbourne Stars
After Brisbane Heat had put up 188 on the board, thanks to a sensational Chris Lynn blitz, everyone must have thought that the star-studded Melbourne Stars will give it a good go. However, Heat's star spinner Samuel Badree had other ideas.
He opened the bowling for Brisbane and his clever leg breaks killed the game off within the powerplay overs. The mayhem started early as Luke Wright played on to his stumps and was out off the 3rd ball of the innings. In his second over, he deceived Kevin Pietersen with a faster delivery and had him trapped in front.
Marcus Stoinis played a false shot, while Peter Handsomb was stumped after he completely misread the trajectory of the delivery and finally, Rob Quiney hit a ball straight to the fielder at mid-on. In the space of 16 deliveries, Badree ended the game and it remains one of the greatest spells of bowling in the history of the competition.Published 24 Dec 2017, 12:28 IST
