Pattinson parts ways with Melbourne Renegades

The right-arm seamer had signed a three-year contract in 2020 but has withdrawn from the final year to spend time with his family

James Pattinson has parted ways with Melbourne Renegades and won't feature in the next edition of the Big Bash League. The right-arm seamer had signed a three-year contract in 2020 but has withdrawn from the final year to spend time with his family.

"Unfortunately I could only commit to part of the season given my state and overseas cricket commitments. I'll need to take a break in December to give my body a rest and also want to spend that Christmas period with family. I'd like to thank the Renegades for my time there and wish them all the best for the season," said Pattinson.

Pattinson, who announced his retirement from international cricket last year, is currently playing county cricket for Nottinghamshire and is still contracted with Victoria. He played 20 games for the Renegades, picking up 22 wickets at an economy of 9.3. 

"We'd like to thank James for his efforts as a Renegade. We understand the position he's in with prioritising his County and State cricketing commitments and appreciate him being upfront with us," Renegades general manager, James Rosengarten, said.

"With James only being available for part of the season, we feel the best option for us is to utilise this list spot on a player who can fully commit to the Renegades for all of BBL12.

"The timing of this decision allows our list management team to balance the role of that player alongside who we may target in the overseas player draft."

The BBL franchises are now allowed to sign contracts with domestic players, and Cricket Australia also announced the introduction of an IPL-style draft system to pick overseas players. The BBL 2022-23 is expected to start from mid-December and will go on till late January.

"Alongside our head coach David Saker and our coaching team, we have been working through our list management strategy for the past six months to turn things around on-field in BBL|12, with a view to our domestic player mix and then how to complement that through the draft," Rosengarten said.

"Over the coming months, we look forward to announcing some re-signings and the addition of some new domestic and international players. We are building a team which will play an exciting brand of cricket for our fans, but most importantly with a view to taking the Renegades back into the finals mix."
