New look Renegades

Docklands’ own cricket team, the Renegades, have signed 14 players for the second KFC T20 Big Bash League season, with a further four recruits to be named by November 30.

The cricketing world has witnessed significant player migration across the competition as a result of the free agency model that followed the single-year deals signed in BBL|01.

The Renegades were among a number of teams to take a fresh direction in terms of list composition, signing nine new players out of 14 recruits during the July contracting window.

Headlining the squad is international superstar and the world’s leading test wicket-taker, Muttiah Muralitharan (pictured right).

Renegades members and supporters will be in for a treat when Etihad Stadium plays host to the first match of the season on Friday, December 7, with Murali versus Shane Warne likely to headline the blockbuster Melbourne derby fixture.

Coach Simon Helmot says Muralitharan brings to the Renegades almost two decades of experience at the highest level of the game.

“It’s difficult to say anything about ‘Murali’ that hasn’t already been said,” Mr Helmot said.

“Not only is he a prodigious talent with the ball, he also possesses a level of cricketing knowledge and experience that few others in the world can match.”

“So even when he’s not tying down an end or taking wickets, his presence on the ground and in the dressing room can be enough to give a team that lift they need to succeed.”

The re-signing of Victorians Aaron Finch, Jayde Herrick, Will Sheridan, Meyrick Buchanan and Michael Hill has been warmly welcomed ahead of BBL|02, while former Bushranger and one-time English Test player Darren Pattinson returns to his home state after five seasons with Nottinghamshire.

One more Victorian makes his way home and into a Renegades jersey in the form of 18-year-old leg-spinner James Muirhead. Muirhead made his T20 debut with the Strikers last season, picking up four wickets from his two outings.

The Renegades have secured some of the best up-and-coming interstate talent on multi-year deals to lay the foundation for enduring success in the competition.

Nathan Rimmington arrives from the Scorchers and should prove popular with his bushy beard, while Strikers opening bat Daniel Harris, left-arm tweaker Aaron O’Brien and batting powerhouse Tom Cooper have also joined the squad.

Rounding out the Renegades are former Sydney Sixer Ben Rohrer and his wicket-keeping team-mate Peter Nevill.
