Mohammad Nabi re-commits to Renegades

10 November 2021

Fan favourite and Afghanistan all-rounder Mohammad Nabi has re-signed with the Melbourne Renegades for KFC BBL|11.

It will mark a fifth consecutive summer in red for Nabi, who captained Afghanistan at the 2021 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup.

Nabi – the world’s number one ranked T20I all-rounder – boasts an impressive BBL record.

He averages 28.41 with the bat for the Renegades at a strike rate of 129.67 and has collected 25 wickets.

“It’s great to be linking up with the Renegades once again. Going into my fifth Big Bash campaign, I feel like part of their family,” Nabi said.

“I hope we can win another title and give our fans something to smile about after such a difficult time for everyone.”

The 36-year-old has represented the Renegades in 34 matches across four seasons and was part of the BBL|08 title-winning squad.

“It’s great to have a player of Mohammad Nabi’s quality locked in for BBL|11,” BBL Head Coach, David Saker, said.

“His record in the Big Bash speaks for itself and he brings a wealth of experience from playing in T20 tournaments around the world.

“Nabi has been an important part of our middle order and has the ability to change games quickly.
“He has the flexibility with both bat and ball to play various roles for our team. We’re looking forward to what he can bring this year.”

Nabi has signed for the duration of the tournament.

“We’re really pleased to welcome Mohammad Nabi back for another campaign with the Renegades,” General Manager, James Rosengarten, said.

“He’s been a valued member of our playing group and club over the last four seasons and it’s great to have him returning for BBL|11.”
