Just a couple of days after being released from his New Zealand Cricket contract, leading Black Caps T20 runscorer Martin Guptill has signed with the Melbourne Renegades in the Big Bash League.

Guptill has been signed as a replacement for England’s Liam Livingstone, who’s withdrawn from the Big Bash following his surprise inclusion in the England test squad for their upcoming tour of Pakistan.

Guptill, had requested a release from his New Zealand contract having missed out on selection for New Zealand one day and T20 sides.

He’s the third player to be released by NZC this year along with Trent Boult and Colin de Grandhomme.

Guptill is adamant though he has retired from international cricket and still hopes to play in next year’s World Cup in India, but opted out of his contract to pursue overseas T20 opportunities.

He’s played in the Big Bash just once before, making a one-off appearance 10 years ago for the Sydney Thunder and has also played in the Indian Premier League, Pakistan Super League and Caribbean Premier League.

“I’m excited to be joining the Renegades and am looking forward to being part of the Big Bash…. this is a new challenge for me and it will be nice to call Melbourne home for the summer,” said Guptill

“I’ve crossed paths with a few of the guys over the years on the international circuit and know this will be a great team environment to be part of.
