The Melbourne Renegades Women team is a women's Twenty20 cricket team based in Melbourne that competes in the Women's Big Bash League.[1]


The Renegades is one of 8 founding teams with their franchise aligned with the current men's competition (Big Bash League) – adopting the same colours and team name. The team's inaugural coach was Lachlan Stevens.

Cricket Australia CEO James Sutherland said in a media release, "We see T20 as the premium format of the women's game and the WBBL is an exciting concept that will increase the promotion and exposure of women's cricket".[1] Sutherland also said, "Our existing female domestic competitions are arguably the strongest in the world, with the continued success of the top-ranked women's team, the Commonwealth Bank Southern Stars, a testament to that.". The first signing for the club was former Southern Star Sarah Elliott.

The Renegades played their inaugural WBBL match against the Hobart Hurricanes at Aurora Stadium, in Launceston, Tasmania on 11 December 2015.[2]
