Big Bash League: Marsh pens Renegades deal

Veteran batsman Shaun Marsh is determined to help the Melbourne Renegades to brighter times after penning a new two-year contract with the franchise.

The Renegades have had a tough few seasons in the Big Bash League when picking up the wooden spoon in each of the last three campaigns, but Marsh says there is hope.

Two-year deal

Marsh has been with the Renegades during that three-year spell and after experiencing the tough times he is keen to play a role in their rise up the BBL ladder.

Marsh has now penned a two-year deal that means he will be playing BBL cricket until he is at least 40, but he still feels he has plenty to offer.

"We clearly haven't got the results we wanted as a team over the past couple of years," Marsh said. "I'm determined to help the Renegades rise again and deliver success for all the fans who have supported us and stuck with us.

"There's a big challenge ahead of us, but we have we have a close-knit group of players and coaches who are united in the belief that we can turn things around next season."

Top batsman

Marsh had his injury issues last season but returned to score 202 runs in the final seven matches of the campaign.

The Western Australian is sixth on the BBL all-time scorers list with 2398 runs and the Renegades are delighted to extend his deal.

"He's one of the competition's best batters and again highlighted how important he is to our side through the back half of the season," Renegades general manager James Rosengarten said.

"With Shaun now signed up alongside the likes of Aaron Finch, Kane Richardson and Nic Maddinson this provides us with a core group of senior players to reshape our list around for BBL12 and beyond."
