Dwayne Bravo signs new deal with Big Bash side Melbourne Renegades

Melbourne: Star West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo has signed a new deal to play for Melbourne Renegades in Australia`s Big Bash League (BBL) next season.

Bravo will return on a one-year deal for his third consecutive season, Renegades franchise officials confirmed on Tuesday, reports CMC.

Bravo`s new deal with Renegades means one of the franchise`s two international contracts has been taken.

"Having Dwayne back is obviously fantastic," CEO Stuart Coventry said of Bravo, last year`s Player of the Year.

"He was a driving force for us last season and brings an enthusiasm and intensity about his play that is a really positive combination for the rest of the squad."

Renegades, who are chasing their second final berth, have also signed a new deal with captain Aaron Finch.

The club is also said to be looking for another overseas player to replace T20 super star Chris Gayle.
