Former Australian wrist-spinner, Cameron Boyce has left Big Bash League (BBL) franchise Hobart Hurricanes (HH) to sign a two-year deal with the Melbourne Renegades (MR) for the upcoming edition of the domestic professional Twenty20 league in Australia.

As a result, Renegades now have two spots left including overseas signings to complete their 18-man squad.

Meanwhile, Boyce, who represented Hurricanes for the last five seasons followed all-rounder Dan Christian in joining the Renegades. He picked up six wickets last season after ending up as their most economical bowler.

However, the team management left him out of the playing XI for the semifinals and the finals in particular.

Overall, he is BBL’s equal sixth-highest wicket-taker with 49 wickets in 46 games with an economy of 8.21.

Excited to join Renegades:

Earlier on Friday (June 8), Boyce expressed his delight to join the Renegades for this season. He along with Jon Holland and Mohammad Nabi will form the spin trio for the Renegades.

I’m really excited about joining the Renegades for the next two seasons,” Cricket Australia (CA) quotes Boyce.

The 28-year-old Queenslander, who lost his Tasmanian Tigers contract earlier in the year, played seven T20Is for Australia between 2014 and 2016. He had previously also represented the Adelaide Strikers.

“I’m really optimistic about our prospects over the coming years. On a personal level, it will be great to challenge myself in a new environment in Melbourne and I’m also looking forward to playing at Etihad Stadium where spin has been a really effective weapon,” he added.

Renegades coach Andrew McDonald is eager to use his experience for the betterment of the side. He also believes Cameron Boyce’s wrist spin will complement the Renegade’s attack in the coming seasons.
