Melbourne Renegades v Sydney Thunder
Thursday December 19 – GMHBA Stadium
The Melbourne Renegades will begin their Big Bash title defence in Geelong!
BBL|09 gets underway at GMHBA Stadium on December 19 when Aaron Finch leads his championship winning team out to take on the Sydney Thunder.
It’s all part of Finch-mas! The Renegades are getting into the spirit of the season with heaps of giveaways in the lead up to the match and during the game.
The Renegades will host a second match at GMHBA Stadium on January 7 when they take on the Perth Scorchers.
This is a great game to bring the kids to with Nickelodeon providing plenty of entertainment throughout the night. The Renegades squad has been bolstered by the signing of Shaun Marsh. He’s one of the competition’s best-ever players and averages nearly 50 with the bat.
The club also boasts some of the best young talent in the game with reigning BBL Young Gun of the Season Sam Harper, Will Sutherland, Jake Fraser-McGurk and Mackenzie Harvey all set to line up from the Renegades.
The Player of the Match in last season’s Final Dan Christian and Australian internationals Kane Richardson and Marcus Harris add to an impressive squad.
This is the third season the Renegades have hosted matches in Geelong and with strong support across the surf coast, the club is looking to make GMHBA Stadium a fortress. Big Bash showcases some of the most talented cricketers in the world in a fast-paced, family friendly, entertaining environment.
Tickets for the games on December 19 and January 7 are on sale now from Ticketmaster.
