A year later, he also made his List-A debut on 18th September 2018 against Western Australia in the JLT One-Day Cup. Sams had a dream debut as he scored 62 runs with the bat and picked up 3 wickets with the ball and was also awarded the player of the match award.

He was also selected to play for the Vancouver Knights in the Global T20 Canada in June 2019.  Sams has played only a  handful of games in the domestic circuit as he was quickly drafted into the international side and other competitive leagues around the Globe.

After some consistent and impressive performances for his local club Randwick-Petersham Cricket Club, he was drafted into the Sydney Sixers squad as a replacement for their injured pacer Henry Thornton.

He made his debut for the Sixers against Sydney Thunder on 19th December 2017 in the 2017-18 Big Bash League. Sams again had a dream debut as he picked 4/14 in his 4 overs which were also the best figures by any debutant in the history of the competition.

Sams came into the limelight after he picked up 30 wickets in the 9th edition of the Big Bash League and set a record for picking up the most wickets in a single season of the BBL.

Later in the 2018 edition of the BBL, Sams signed a contract with the Sydney Thunder and currently plays for them in the competition.
