Mohammad Nabi returns for BBL|10

21 October 2020

The world’s number one ranked T20I all-rounder Mohammad Nabi will return to the Melbourne Renegades for the tenth edition of the KFC Big Bash League.

This will be Nabi’s fourth season with the club.  In his 27 games for the Renegades he has demonstrated his all-round talents by averaging 30 with the bat at a strike rate of 131, while also taking 21 wickets.

Nabi will join the Renegades after his stint in the Indian Premier League with Sunrisers Hyderabad.

“I have always enjoyed my time with the Renegades and testing myself against some of the best T20 players in the world in the Big Bash. I’m very pleased to have re-signed for a fourth season,” Nabi said.

Renegades Coach Michael Klinger said Nabi provides the team with added flexibility.

“Nabi’s versatility makes him a very valuable member of our team.  He can bat and bowl in a number of different situations and he reads the game so well,” Klinger said.

“We’ll again be looking for Nabi to play a key role in our middle order and he’ll be called upon to bowl some important overs.”

The BBL will get underway later this year and the Renegades will announce further signings in the lead up to the season.

Renegades squad (so far):
Cameron Boyce, Zak Evans, Aaron Finch (c), Jake Fraser-McGurk, Sam Harper, Marcus Harris, Mackenzie Harvey, Jon Holland, Shaun Marsh, Mohammad Nabi, James Pattinson, Kane Richardson, Will Sutherland, Beau Webster.
