Daniel Sams out with concussion
Despite Sams’ bowling absence being telling, Bond has no intention to rush him back, particularly with the Thunder well-placed near the top of the ladder with five wins from seven matches.
“He woke up pretty good but you have to be careful with the concussion stuff,” Bond said on Tuesday.
“It’s day by day and you definitely want to take a more conservative approach. We’ll just see how he shapes up over the next few days.
“There’s still a long way to go. We’re only seven games in. We want him to cone back and be fit. We can’t take any chances with the concussion stuff.
“It was a bit of a bummer for him to get knocked out. He’s playing so well.”
