Renegades finish on a high

11 Feb 2014

By Robert Bremner

Inspired by West Indian Dwayne Bravo, the Renegades held on for a one point win against the Adelaide Strikers in their recent clash but it was too little too late with the team finishing outside of the top four.

Bravo hit 47 off 33 deliveries and also picked up two wickets, which was enough to have him named man of the match.

The Renegades have struggled to capture the form of the previous season that saw them reach the semi finals. Melbourne finished in sixth position on the ladder with three wins to their name.

In a season of disappointment, Aaron Finch has once again lead from the front. He played in six of the matches and finished the season with an average of 52.40 including three 50s as well as scoring twelve sixes. Nathan Rimmington and Muttiah Muralitharan were at their stingy best this season, leading the bowling attack with 10 and eight wickets respectively.

The third instalment of the Big Bash League began with the Melbourne derby. This time the Renegades were easily beaten by the Stars whose score of 7/208 never looked like being reached. The Stars currently sit at the top of the ladder after being undefeated all season and will play in the semi finals.

Inconsistency has plagued the boys in red all year, mixing great performances with poor form. Following the Stars loss, the Renegades found themselves on the wrong end of a thriller.

Perth Strikers, lead by Yasir Arafat hung on to claim a six-run victory when early on Melbourne had seemed in complete control.

The standout match for the Renegades followed, they scored an impressive 3/210 to smash the Heat by 57 runs. Aaron Finch was again at his best with a score of 81 not out, his highest for the season.

They then backed it up with a resounding defeat of Hobart Hurricanes with Finch again starring with 50 runs and Pattinson named man of the match after a four wicket haul.

The Renegades were unable to continue this form with a string of bad losses following against the Stars and  bottom placed Thunder. The Renegades then suffered a two run loss to the Sydney Sixers ultimately condemning themselves to missing the finals.
