The Renegades suffered a disastrous season as they could only manage 4 wins in 14 outings, thereby finishing at the last spot in the points table.


The following season proved to be no better as the beleaguered Renegades discovered new levels of lows, despite the head coach Michael Klinger and captain Aaron Finch giving up their positions after a wretched experience last year.

Nic Maddinson was appointed Finch's successor, but the end result remained the same as the Renegades once again finished with the dreaded wooden spoon. This time, they managed 1 fewer win in 14 outings than the 2020/21 season- 3 wins & 10 defeats with 1 game ending in a No Result.


The ongoing season has been a middling one for the Nic Madinson-led Melbourne Renegades. As of December 31, 2022, they had won 3 games out of 6.

Melbourne Renegades 2022/23 squad - Players to watch out

Nic Maddinson

r0_0_800_600_w800_h600_fmax.jpg (800×600)

The skipper started the 2022-23 campaign on a glorious note as he smashed a 49-ball 87 to help the Melbourne Renegades beat the Brisbane Heat in their season opener.

But, he has managed to add just 42 runs in his next 5 innings so far (as of 31st December 2022). The Renegades will desperately hope for their captain to regain his touch as we approach the business end of the tournament.

Aaron Finch

9f8c9d16-josh-inglis-5.jpg (810×450)

The former skipper might be averaging 42.75 after 6 innings but his strike rate of 106.21 leaves a lot to be desired. If Renegades have to go all the way in this season, they will need Finch to beef up his strike rate to at least 130.

Akeal Hosein

351302.jpg (1200×801)

The West Indian left-arm orthodox is enjoying his time in the Big Bash League, as is evident from his bowling figures. With 12 wickets in 6 games @ 12.08, Hosein is currently the joint 2nd highest wicket-taker of the season and certainly the leader of the Melbourne Renegades attack.
