Marcus Stoinis re-signs with Melbourne Stars for three years

·

The Greek Australian cricketer, Marcus Stoinis, has re-signed with the Melbourne Stars, extending his time at the KFC Big Bash club to a 14th season after signing a three-year deal

The 34-year-old, who arrived at the Stars in 2013-14 (BBL|03) following a season at the Perth Scorchers, is set to remain at the Victorian club until season 2026-27 (BBL|16).

The Australian 2021 T20 World Cup winner is one of Stars’ greatest ever players, coming second in the all-time run scorers at the club and sixth in the wicket takers.

Stoinis has played 98 games for the Stars and will become just the second player to reach the 100-game milestone at the club.

“Marcus is obviously one of the most experienced and well performed T20 players in Australia over the last decade and for him to commit for another three seasons is a great demonstration of the faith he has in where we are headed,” Melbourne Stars General Manager Blair Crouch said.

“He is one of the most in-demand T20 players in the world and as we saw on New Year’s Eve again this year, when he was at his destructive best, he is one of very few players who can win a match off his own bat. 

“As well as what Marcus brings on the field, he, along with the other senior players will play a huge role over the next few years in developing the next generation at the Stars.”

Stoinis has previously represented Australia at ODI level as well as in major T20 cricket competitions around the world including the IPL.
