BBL 2022-23: Martin Guptill joins Melbourne Renegades

Just a few days after being released from New Zealand’s central contract Martin Guptill has signed a contract with Melbourne Renegades for the BBL 2022-23. Following the footsteps of Trent Boult, Guptill is the latest from New Zealand’s cricket board to opt out from his Central Contract in order to feature in BBL 2022-23. Boult was picked by Melbourne Stars in their overseas player draft held in August 2022. Colin De Grandhomme has also been released from New Zealand Cricket Central Contract to play for Adelaide Strikers.

Notably Boult & Guptill both have not retired from New Zealand cricket but have opted to pull out of Central Contract to feature in cash-rich T20 leagues across the Globe. Guptill will join the Renegades squad as a replacement for Liam Livingstone as the latter has opted out of the BBL 2022-23 due to increased International Commitments after being named in England’s Test squad for the Pakistan series. Guptill will feature in the last 10 matches of the upcoming edition of the Big Bash League as Russell will play the first four matches of the season as Livingstone’s replacement.

BBL 2022-23 Renegades General Manager is overwhelmed to have Guptill on board

“I’m excited to be joining the Renegades and am looking forward to being part of the Big Bash this season. This is a new challenge for me, and it will be nice to call Melbourne home for the summer. I’ll be trying to make as many runs as I can to help drive the Renegades back up the ladder and push for team success,” Guptill said on joining the league.

“We’re delighted to have a player of Martin’s caliber joining the Renegades and we’re excited that he has chosen to play for our club,” Renegades General Manager James Rosengarten said.

He further said that Guptill’s widespread experience in the shortest format of cricket will add power to Renegades lineup. And they are excited to see Guptill donning the jersey of renegades & playing for them in the BBL 2022-23. He further reckoned that by having Andre for the first four matches & Guptill for the later part of the tournament they now have a formidable squad in place which will increase their chances of winning the BBL 12.

For the unversed, this will be Guptill’s second stint in the BBL. Previously he has played for the Sydney Thunder franchise in December 2012.
