Melbourne Renegades have suffered a huge blow in the ongoing Big Bash League (BBL) season as their skipper Nic Maddinson is ruled out of the tournament with an ACL injury.
Maddinson suffered the blow during a game against Perth Scorchers and is likely to miss cricket for the next 12 months. Aaron Finch, who stood down as Renegades captain in November 2021, will lead the team in Maddison’s absence.
Cricket Victoria’s General Manager of Cricket Graham Manou’s statement:
“It’s very unfortunate news for Nic, he has been one of the leading batters in the country across the Sheffield Shield over recent years.”
“Nic has also been an outstanding leader within our young squad and I have no doubt he will continue to play that role through his rehabilitation process. We’re right behind Nic, we’ll provide our full support in any way we can.”
