Melbourne Renegades statement after tonight’s match against Scorchers was abandoned:

On Sunday morning, the club was made aware that the GMHBA Stadium pitch sustained some water damage during Saturday’s heavy rain. Kardinia Park Stadium Trust undertook work throughout the day to improve the condition of the wicket and match officials deemed the surface safe to commence play.

Melbourne Renegades General Manager James Rosengarten said:

“Our first thoughts are with our fans – the loyal supporters we have across Geelong and Victoria. We are incredibly disappointed in tonight’s events. We had an important match against the Scorchers and our fans have a right to feel incredibly let down. It should have been a great night of cricket and we will discuss the outcomes of that in the days ahead.”

“The club will ensure that all general public ticket purchasers are refunded”

Kardinia Park Stadium Trust CEO Gerard Griffin said:

“We regret the unfortunate events that occurred tonight at GHMBA Stadium. We understand the disappointment this has created. This is not the experience that Kardinia Park Stadium trust anticipated for the teams or the patrons that came to watch this game tonight.
