Formation

One of eight founding WBBL teams, the Melbourne Renegades are aligned with the men’s team of the same name. On 3 June 2015, Cricket Victoria announced Lachlan Stevens would “take charge of one of Melbourne’s two WBBL teams”. Stevens would be confirmed as inaugural head coach of the Renegades in the following months. At the official WBBL launch on 10 July, Sarah Elliott was unveiled as the team’s first ever signing. Elliott would also become the inaugural captain.

The Renegades played their first match against the Hobart Hurricanes at Aurora Stadium in Launceston on 11 December, losing by 35 runs. It took until their fifth match, a 20 December encounter with the Brisbane Heat at the Gabba, to register a win.
