Renegades re-sign multiple stars

29 Oct 2013

By Robert Bremner

After a breakout year last season, The Renegades have resigned 13 of their stars and will be hoping to go two better in this year’s Big Bash league competition.

Melbourne Renegades have resigned most of their stars ahead of the Big Bash League 2013/2014 upcoming season.  Thirteen of last season’s players will be playing in red again including batting sensation Aaron Finch, retired Sri Lankan world-class bowler Muthiah Mualidaran and New South Wales batsman Ben Rohrer.

The Renegades also gained the signatures of test bowlers Peter Siddle and James Pattinson who have joined for the next two seasons and will strengthen the club’s bowling attack. Rounding out the Renegade’s squad is Matthew Gale, Alex Doolan, Fawad Ahmed, Jayde Herrick, Nathan Rimmington, Tom Cooper, Daniel Harris, Will Sheridan, Peter Nevill, Michael Hill and Aaron O’ Brien.  Simon Helmot will once again be the head coach of the Renegades.

The Renegades will be hoping to go two better this year, after being knocked out in the semi final stage last season. Melbourne finished on top of the ladder, two games clear after losing only one game during the home and away season. Their only loss came against Perth Scorchers, an eventual finalist. The Renegades were eliminated by premiers Brisbane Heat in the semi finals

Aaron Finch will stay on as the captain after an impressive contribution last season which gave him the honours of the Big Bash player of the season after scoring a total of 332 runs in the series including an unbeaten century in the opening game against Melbourne Stars.

The draw for the upcoming season has already been released with the Renegades fixture once again beginning with a Melbourne derby against their cross-town rivals Melbourne Stars on December 20. The season will run from late December until early next year with the final being played on February 7.

For fans of the Renegades who can’t wait for the start of the Big Bash League, the club has started a YouTube channel containing all their highlights from their successful 2012/2013 season.  The channel also features skills tutorials from the players and interviews with the team, president and coach.
