Christian named BBL Player of the Season

02 April 2019

Melbourne Renegades all-rounder Dan Christian has been named the Club’s BBL|08 Player of the Season.

The award is voted on by the club’s members and was presented at the Cricket Victoria State Awards.

Christian joined the Renegades after previously playing with Hobart Hurricanes and Brisbane Heat.

He featured in all 16 games throughout BBL|08 and was a key figure in the Renegades victories in the semi-final against the Sydney Sixers (31 off 14 balls) and the final against Melbourne Stars (38 not out off 30 balls and 2-33).

The all-rounder was named Player of the Match after both finals wins and also picked up the award after hitting an unbeaten 49 off 27 balls as the Renegades chased down 175 against the Adelaide Strikers in the second match of the home and away season.

Christian amassed 254 runs and captured 15 wickets throughout the campaign.

The Renegades Big Bash title marked Christian’s seventh T20 Championship victory.
