The left-arm orthodox spinner helped turn Etihad Stadium into a fortress during BBL|02 alongside fellow tweakers Muthiah Muralidaran and Marlon Samuels.

Regularly opening the bowling for the Renegades, “Obi” caused plenty of headaches for the opposition with his deadly accurate offies.

Obi played every match of the season, picking up nine scalps and conceding just a touch over six runs an over.

He has been a handful for domestic players in T20 for years now, having played 50 matches for South Australia, New South Wales, Adelaide Strikers and the Renegades, averaging a wicket a match.

Off the field, Obi is continuing forge a career in the financial services industry and will again prove to be a worthy investment by the Renegades’ recruiting staff in BBL|03.
