Matt Renshaw has moved from the Brisbane Warmth to the Adelaide Strikers on a three-year deal.
Renshaw, 24, was the Warmth’s second-highest run scorer final season with 348 at a strike-rate of 129.85 and has made himself right into a middle-order batsman within the format who may also ship down some helpful offspin. His highest T20 rating, 90 off 50 balls, got here towards the Strikers within the 2018-19 season.
“The Adelaide Strikers have always been an impressive franchise and to be joining them for the next three years, I’m just ecstatic,” he mentioned. “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.”
“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.”
The Warmth mentioned that they had made Renshaw their “best offer” to remain. “While we’re disappointed to see him leave, we wish him well,” coach Darren Lehmann mentioned. “In the three seasons he had with us, he worked hard to develop his T20 skills and his enthusiasm was good to have around the team.”
Renshaw took a break from the game after final season’s Massive Bash and matched with the onset of Covid-19 had not performed a aggressive match since a Queensland 2nd XI fixture in early February till returning to Premier Cricket final weekend
Renshaw’s signing is the second a part of the Strikers’ pre-season strikes after they agreed a commerce with the Melbourne Stars to swap Billy Stanlake for Dan Worrall.
