The 31-year-old demonstrated consistency, creativity and sheer brilliance on his way to a standout BBL|07 campaign.
Cooper scored 298 runs at an average of 49.67 and the healthy strike rate of 141.
“It’s a big honour to win this award because its voted on by the members who have been so loyal and supportive over the journey,” Cooper said.
“We made a lot of progress this season as a team and I feel with the continued support of our fans we’ll remain a strong contender.”
Cooper’s top score came against the Brisbane Heat when he smashed an unbeaten 65 off 36 balls. That night he also took a spectacular one-handed catch running back with the flight of the ball.
He scored 30 runs or more on five occasions and proved a reliable bowling option, often utilised throughout the powerplay.
The South Australian began his BBL career with Adelaide Strikers but crossed to the Renegades ahead of the BBL|02 campaign.
He’s gone on to play 46 games with the Renegades, a joint club record with Aaron Finch.
