Melbourne Renegades have signed Martin Guptill as a replacement pick for the 2022-23 Big Bash League season after losing the services of their No. 1 draft pick Liam Livingstone. Following his choice to forgo a national contract in favour of league opportunities, Guptill made his decision. Liam Livingstone was meant to be away on national duty during the first four games for the Renegades, but Andre Russell is set to play in those games instead, so Guptill will be available for the remaining 10 league games, beginning on December 28 against the Sydney Sixers.

“We’re delighted to have a player of Martin’s calibre joining the Renegades and we’re excited that he has chosen to play for our club,” Melbourne Renegades General Manager James Rosengarten said.”Martin’s record over a long period of time in the shortest form of the game for New Zealand and in domestic competitions around the world speaks for itself. We know Martin will add a wealth of experience and knowledge to our playing group and look forward to seeing what he can produce in red.”Signing Martin and Andre over the past month has been a great outcome for our club. With Andre playing the first four matches and Martin joining us from there, we now have a world-class player available for the duration of the tournament which will help give us every chance of success in BBL.”

“I’m excited to be joining the Renegades and am looking forward to being part of the Big Bash this season. This is a new challenge for me and it will be nice to call Melbourne home for the summer. I’ll be trying to make as many runs as I can to help drive the Renegades back up the ladder and push for team success”, said the 36-year old Guptill.
