West Indies’ star all-rounder Dwayne Bravo has signed for Big Bash League(BBL) outfit Melbourne Renegades for the upcoming season. The one-year deal will see Bravo returning to Melbourne  for his third consecutive season at the Renegades.

Delighted with the deal, Renegades CEO Stuart Coventry said: “Having Dwayne back is obviously fantastic.”

“He was a driving force for us last season and brings an enthusiasm and intensity about his play that is a really positive combination for the rest of the squad.”

Meanwhile, more good news was in store for the Melbourne-based franchise as their star skipper Aaron Finch too signed a long-term deal. Finch,the second-ranked T20 batsman in the world,  committed his future with the Renegades until the end of BBL|08.

“We’re delighted Aaron has agreed to extend his relationship with the club. As captain, he is a critical part of our Renegades family and a big factor for our members and fans. His record in the BBL needs no introduction and we’re looking forward to the next three seasons,”Coventry said.

The red half of the Melbourne has made just one final appearance in five seasons and it seems they are desperate to improve their record in the league. Before Bravo, they signed veteran spinner Brad Hogg and young batsman Marcus Harris from the Perth Scorchers.

Meanwhile, the Renegades are still in search of a good replacement for their last season’s recruit Chris Gayle. The Renegades ended their contract with the star West Indies batsman after he was involved in a sexism row with an Australian journalist. They are also on the lookout for a new head coach after David Saker was named as Australia’s fast-bowling coach last month.

Bravo,who won the T20 World Cup this year with West Indies, is currently playing in Caribbean Premier League. The all-rounder has been in good form and can help the Renegades to go far in the upcoming season.
