Bravo to miss rest of BBL season


Melbourne Renegades all-rounder Dwayne Bravo will miss the rest of the Big Bash League season due to a hamstring injury.

Bravo, 33, suffered the injury during his side's thrilling four-wicket loss to Perth Scorchers at Etihad Stadium on Thursday.

Renegades confirmed Bravo would require surgery and are considering their replacement player options.

"Unfortunately my Big Bash season is over which is very disappointing," Bravo said.

"I'll now have surgery and the rehabilitation to get me fit and playing at my best again.

"I want to thank all the Renegades fans for their support for me and I hope to see them again next season."

Renegades hold a 1-1 win-loss record early in the BBL season and face Melbourne Stars on New Year's Day.
