Trinidad and Tobago’s West Indian spinner Samuel Badree is expected to hand the Brisbane Heat a much-welcomed boost ahead of the Big Bash League (BBL) final with a return to full fitness.
Badree has been sidelined for the last two weeks after suffering a grade one hamstring tear in the team’s three-wicket loss to the Sydney Sixers three weeks ago.
The spinner missed a total of three matches, two important top-of-the-table clashes with Perth Scorchers and Monday night’s seven-wicket win over the Melbourne Stars which landed the Heat top spot on the eight-team table and assured of making the playoff final.
Badree was replaced by left-arm quick Tymal Mills . The 35-year-old Trinidadian who has enjoyed rankings as number one T20 bowler in world cricket, has tken just four wickets to date but remains a first-choice call-up once fit.
Badree will be put through his paces at the Heat’s main training session tomorrow ahead of the sold-out clash the following evening against a Renegades line-up who must win to have any hope of experiencing finals action.
Injury has cut short the play for Badree’s fellow Trinidadian Dwayne Bravo as well as Jamaican all-round sensation Andre Russell.
Badree’s fellow TT and West Indies spinner Sunil Narine, like Bravo, a member of the Melbourne Renegades squad, has remained fit, counting 11 wickets so far but with his team unlikely for the playoff finals as are the last-placed Adelaide Strikers, the team of another TT player Kieron Pollard.
