The Melbourne Renegades have signed Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan for the ongoing edition of the Big Bash League (BBL).

Al Hasan will take all-rounder Andre Russell’s spot in the squad after the latter was called up to represent the West Indies on their ongoing tour of South Africa.

“Shakib is great fit for our squad in January and we’re looking forward to having him on board,” Renegades head coach Simon Helmot said. “We were looking for someone who could contribute across the board for us and being able to call on the top-ranked T20 all-rounder in the world is a terrific boost.

“He brings plenty of experience and a cool head under pressure.”
