Somerset all-rounder Lewis Gregory impressed with the ball for Brisbane Heat on his Big Bash League debut on Sunday.
The 28-year-old Gregory claimed 3-22, dismissing England teammate Dawid Malan for 15, as the Heat held Hobart Hurricanes to 148-7 at The Gabba.
And his efforts in also getting rid of Australian internationals D'Arcy Short and Peter Hanscombe paved the way for a four-wicket win with 16 balls remaining and the man of the match award.
Having completed a mandatory 14-day quarantine period in his hotel room after arriving from England, Gregory - who has played eight T20 internationals to date - said: "It was a case of best when fresh. I only got out of quarantine a couple of days ago.
"It is always nice to get a few of the boys you know out. He (Malan) has been fantastic in T20 cricket in the last couple of years. It will be nice to go at him with that one."
