Melbourne Renegades Select Netherlands Captain Scott Edwards for BBL

1 min read

Melbourne Renegades have sent an SOS to Netherlands captain Scott Edwards to be available for the last two games of the BBL season as a replacement for the injured Joe Clarke. Edwards is currently in South Africa with the Netherlands team on a training tour. He is leaving South Africa early to return to Melbourne, where he grew up, and be available for the final two BBL matches. Renegades had recruited de Kock to keep in the six games he was available for, and were relying on Clarke to fill the role for the remaining matches. But Clarke’s season-ending quad injury threw a spanner in the works. Edwards, 27, qualifies as an Australian local, and had played in Renegades’ practice matches before the BBL. But the Netherlands ODI and T20I captain was not signed by any of the BBL teams despite being fully available for the tournament. Edwards has never played in the BBL or been contracted despite winning the Ryder Medal. Renegades have also added West Indies left-arm spinner Akeal Hosein for the last two games of the season after Mujeeb Ur Rahman was ruled out of the remainder of the BBL.
