Chris Tremain has signed a three-year deal with Sydney Thunder, it was announced on Wednesday (October 16). The pacer will return to the squad from Melbourne Renegades, where he won the title last year.

Tremain had previously featured for Thunder between 2012 and 2015. "I don't think my game has changed too much. I think I've changed quite a bit. I've played a lot more cricket; experienced a lot more. I've had a lot more success, and I've failed a lot more. I've had a career, basically," he said.

"When I was at the Thunder last time, I was really young. I was still learning how to do things - not even cricket. Everything was really raw and full of youth."

Tremain, who has featured in four ODIs for Australia, will collaborate with Chris Morris to boost the pace bowling stocks. Shane Bond, the coach, stressed they are happy to have an experienced pacer in their ranks. "We just wanted a good, serious, hardened pro and I think he showed his value for the Renegades last season, opening the bowling through the back-end of the season," he said.

"He's just a solid performer day-in, day-out. He knows what he's doing, he's durable and he's a great guy around the team. He just brings that experience that we were missing a little bit last season."
