Big Bash League team Adelaide Strikers signed a three-year-deal with the batsman Matt Renshaw on Friday. The deal involves him moving from his former team Brisbane Heat and join them for the next three seasons until 2023-24.
Renshaw has been an exponential performer for the Brisbane Heat in the recent times and he has also impressed everyone with the bat in Test cricket. He also became the second-highest scorer of the Brisbane Heat in 2019-20 season with 348 runs including three half-centuries.
The 24-year-old is looking forward to playing for the Strikers in the 10th edition of the BBL starting in December this year.
“I’m looking forward to having Adelaide Oval as my home ground, which is an oval that I know well and is also one of the best in the world,” Renshaw said.
“Hopefully it will be possible to play in front of our home crowd at some point, as they really do make such an incredible atmosphere,” he added.
Strikers head coach Jason Gillespie praised the young batsman saying:
“We welcome Matt who is a proven batsman and he has really come into his own in T20 cricket in the last couple of seasons.”
“He is a great character, and everyone at the Strikers is excited to have Matt on board for the next three years,” he added.
Renshaw is very well aware of the conditions at the Adelaide Oval as he struck a match-winning 90 runs off just 50 balls in 2018-19 season.
After his acquisition, Adelaide Strikers squad looks like this for BBL 10:
Travis Head (c), Michael Neser, Harry Nielsen, Matthew Renshaw, Matt Short, Peter Siddle, Cameron Valente, Jake Weatherald, Jon Wells, Daniel Worrall.
