Brisbane Heat on Tuesday signed the Melbourne Renegades all rounder Jack Wildermuth for the upcoming season of the BBL.
Wildermuth will join his former Renegades mate Tom Cooper at the Heat and also became the third star player to leave the Melbourne side. On the other hand, Renegades has confirmed about all the three players leaving them ahead of the upcoming season.
The 27-year-old all rounder had made his KFC T20 debut for the Brisbane Heat three years ago before joining the Renegades. He was also member of the Renegades squad that won the BBL 08 title in 2018. He last played for the Heat in the semi-finals of the 2016-17 Big Bash League.
Brisbane Heat’s head coach Darren Lehmann was delighted on Cooper’s return to the side after one year.
“I know that there some good reports on the national side of things around his efforts on the Zimbabwe tour and the Australia ‘A’ quad series in India the same year when he produced some match-winning efforts,” Lehmann said.
“Jack has heaps of potential with bat and ball and we see a lot of upside to him coming back into the Heat set-up.” he added.
