Renegades look to next season

31 Jan 2012

Docklands-based Renegades cricket team had a less-than-satisfactory conclusion to the Twenty20 Big Bash season but coach Simon Helmot remains upbeat about next year.

The Renegades finished at the bottom of the ladder but Mr Helmot thanked Docklanders for their support and urged them to get on board again when the limited-overs season returns in December.

He said, while the Renegades could find the winning formula only twice, they were close to winning every game except one.

“In only one match were we not in the contest,” Mr Helmot said. “In the rest of them we did everything but nail a win.”

“In our last game we lost it on the last ball.  In the others, it went down the last over.”

Mr Helmot said: “Everything is magnified in this short version of the game and on too many occasions we failed to capitalise.”

“The support we got from Docklands was excellent. The local community attended the matches and became members and our major sponsor was Harbour Town Shopping Centre.”

Mr Helmot said Renegades management would now review the season and look carefully at the player list.

“Hopefully, we will retain the majority of our list,” he said.  “I thought we had a good blend of pace and spin.”

Mr Helmot said he hoped to again have spinner Shahid Afridi in his next team.

“It was great to have Afridi in the squad and I hope we can retain his services next year,” he said.
