Melbourne Renegades 2020/21 squad - Players to watch out

#1. Aaron Finch

Aaron Finch has been the identity of the Melbourne Renegades as he has been with the side for all the 9 seasons of the Big Bash League. In fact, he has led the men in red from the 2nd season itself and has ended up as the highest run-getter for them in 4 seasons including the first three. He continues to be their most important player.

#2. Shaun Marsh

Shaun Marsh has risen through the ranks quicker than ever before once he showed the world is his T20 game in the inaugural edition of the Indian Premier League. Now that he is considered for the ODIs and Tests for Australia, he would like to have a good BBL season to get a place in their T20I side as well. The left-hander has tons of experience, which will be crucial for MR this season.

#3. Imran Tahir

The highest wicket-taker in IPL 2019 wasn’t given enough opportunities in IPL 2020. He might be itching to get his due course in the BBL and prove to the IPL fraternity that leaving him out wasn’t the best of choices his team made. The 41-year-old will bring his leg-spinner in Australia and challenge the best batsmen around in the BBL.

#4. Mohammad Nabi

Afghanistan’s Mohammad Nabi is the No. 1 T20I all-rounder in the world according to the ICC rankings. He has been a highly underrated cricketer although he has shown what he can bring to the table time and again. Nabi can support Tahir with his spinners and can also be a dangerous death overs batsman for the Renegades.

#5. Kane Richardson

The Australian quick bowler Kane Richardson has lost a lot of cricket due to his family issues and might be targeting the Big Bash League to get back to professional cricket after the COVID-19 lockdown. The 29-year-old was improving in the lead up to the IPL. It will be tough for him to get back to the same form after a long gap but will remain one of the top bowlers for MR in BBL 10.
