Christian plays 100th BBL match

23 January 2021

Allrounder Daniel Christian became the first player to reach 100 BBL matches in the Sydney Smash at Adelaide Oval.

The Sixers loss to the Thunder did not take away from the significance of what was a historic milestone for allrounder Dan Christian on Friday night. 

His 100 matches have included 1,676 runs and 79 wickets with best figures of 5-14 for one of his four clubs, the Hobart Hurricanes, January 2017.


Dan has scored eight BBL fifties and has an outstanding Big Bash strike rate of 137.04. He also played for the Brisbane Heat and Melbourne Renegades winning BBL titles with each in BBL|02 and BBL|08 respectively.

Earlier this season, Christian scored the second fastest BBL fifty. He reached the 50 in 15 balls in Hobart against Adelaide.


He was presented a special cap by returning Sixer Moises Henriques before play and the Sixers squad fittingly celebrated the milestone during the week.

Henriques returned from Test duty in the Australian squad with 56 from 35 balls.

The Sixers lost the Sydney Smash by 46 runs but remain the BBL|10 ladder leaders.
