Australian batsman Matt Renshaw has been re-signed by Big Bash League (BBL) franchise Brisbane Heat for the upcoming season of the league.
The southpaw made his BBL debut with the club last season.
Renshaw, who is recovering from an injury to the top joint of his left index finger, which he suffered in the UK during his county stint with Somerset, only played the one game last season but credited his time spent with the franchise beneficial in grinding his T20 game.
"I got to train alongside players like Brendon McCullum and Chris Lynn and see how they went about preparing themselves, and the type of skills they emphasised," said Renshaw on Wednesday (July 11).
"It was a different training environment for me and an enjoyable change in terms of the batting skills required, which I had the chance to try out in Premier Cricket with my club Toombul in that window."
