Daniel Sams is an Australian professional cricketer who has represented his country in the T20I version of the sport, as an all-rounder. Before making his international debut in December 2020, he had impressed for the Sydney Thunder franchise (2018-19–Present) with the ball in 3 successive seasons (2018-19-2020-21) in the BBL (Big Bash League) picking up 15, 30, and 11 wickets respectively. He had made his tournament debut in the 2017-18 season, for cross-town rivals Sydney Sixers. His performances in the tournament have also earned him IPL (Indian Premier League) appearances with Delhi Capitals (2020) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (2021). Domestically, he has represented his home state of New South Wales (2018-19–Present) across all 3 formats. Interestingly, in a rather unique situation, he had already made his first-class debut outside of his home country, for Canterbury in the 2017–18 season of the Plunket Shield (New Zealand’s premier first-class cricket competition).

Daniel Sams Facts

  1. When Daniel had made his international debut for Australia in December 2020, he was the 95th player to have represented the country in the T20I format. He chose to use the same number on his Australian shirt which had also been given to him by the Delhi Capitals in the just-concluded IPL season. Before this, he had never used the number 95 on his shirt for any team in either domestic or franchise cricket.
  2. In December 2017, in his debut BBL match which was also his T20 debut, he had bowled an exceptional spell of 4/14. These were the then-best bowling figures by a debutant in the tournament.
  3. In the 2019–20 season of the BBL, he had picked up a tournament-best 30 wickets in 17 matches at a stellar average of 15.37 for Sydney Thunder. His performances were integral in the team’s eventual 3rd-place finish that won him the ‘Michael Hussey Medal’ as the team’s ‘Player of the Tournament’.
  4. In April 2021, just 2 days before the start of the IPL season, he had been tested positive for COVID-19. He had entered the IPL‘s bio-secure bubble on April 3 with a negative test but had returned a positive test on April 7 even though he was asymptomatic. He was then kept in isolation at a nearby designated medical facility.
