James Pattinson splits from Melbourne Renegades
Melbourne, 23 June (H.S.). Former Australia fast bowler James Pattinson has terminated his three-year contract with Melbourne Renegades.
Pattinson retired from international cricket last year. He played six matches in the 2021-22 season, where he picked up just three wickets before ending his season early due to managing injuries amid the challenge of Covid restrictions at the time.
Pattinson said, “Unfortunately I was only committed for a part of the season given my state and overseas cricket commitments. I will need to take a break in December to give my body a rest and also spend the Christmas period with family. I wish Renegades all the best for the season.”
Renegades general manager, James Rosengarten, said, “We would like to thank James for his efforts as a Renegade. We understand his position prioritizing his county and state cricket commitments and appreciate him for staying with us.”
Renegades have been at the bottom of the last three seasons after their title success in 2018-19.
