Cameron White appointed as New head coach of Melbourne Renegades ahead of BBL 2024/25

Former Australian cricket player Cameron White has agreed to a three-year deal to become the head coach of the Melbourne Renegades. This new role marks the beginning of a fresh chapter for the Renegades, following the departure of their previous head coach, David Saker, who left the team in May after a three-year term.

Saker felt really let down by how Renegades played in the 2023-24 Big Bash League. They ended up almost at the very bottom, winning only two out of ten games, and never had a chance to win the championship.

This is the first time White is leading a team as head coach. The 40-year-old previously served as an assistant coach for the Sydney Sixers for two years and held the same position at the Adelaide Strikers before that.

White is familiar with the Renegades because he played for them when he was a player. He was in the team that won the BBL|08 and scored 931 runs in 35 games for the Renegades. He is very happy about becoming the head coach and looks forward to working with the experienced group of players at Renegades.

I’ve got so many great memories here as a player and achieving success, so to be back in Renegades colours several years later is a thrill,” White said in a press release issued by Renegades. “The idea of working with this playing group – some really exciting players there, both young and experienced – is really exciting. I’m really looking forward to ripping in and starting my journey as a coach.”

“We’re absolutely thrilled to have Cameron on board,” Melbourne Renegades General Manager, James Rosengarten, said

“He’s a favourite son at the ‘Gades, his connection with our Club runs deep having contributed heavily to our story with the bat and by achieving the ultimate success.”

“His knowledge of the game, particularly T20 cricket, is also undisputed. We completed a global search process to fill this role. Cam stood out with his vision for the Club and this playing group.”
