Bravo and Finch renew Renegades deals
The Melbourne Renegades have secured the services of West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo and Australia opener Aaron Finch for another season, but have not handed batsman Chris Gayle a new deal.
Bravo, the Big Bash League's most recent player of the year, is, after Andre Russell, the most sought-after player in T20 cricket, while Finch has captained both Australia and the Renegades.
Red Melbourne CEO Stuart Coventry said of the signings: "Having Dwayne back is obviously fantastic.
"He was a driving force for us last season and brings an enthusiasm and intensity about his play that is a really positive combination for the rest of the squad.
"We're delighted Aaron has agreed to extend his relationship with the club. As captain he is a critical part of our Renegades family and a big factor for our members and fans.
"His record in the BBL needs no introduction and we're looking forward to the next three seasons."
They have not yet signed an overseas replacement for Gayle, who fell out of favour with the franchise after his scandal-ridden BBL earlier this year, highlighted by his controversial comments to journalist Mel McLaughlin.
