Brett Kirk's viral video has taken a new format, with Big Bash League cricket team the Melbourne Renegades making their own version of the hilarious Kirk monologue.

The Swans legend's speech is notorious amongst football fans, with his illustrious career seemingly overshadowed in a sense.

The former Swans skipper played 241 games for the Bloods, captaining the club for a combined five years, one of which he led them to a premiership.

He also collected two Best and Fairest awards and an All-Australian in his time in the AFL.

Now, his spiel can be found all over social media.

In a deliberate plea to win footy fans over, particularly young social media users, cricketers Kane Richardson, Sam Harper, Jake Fraser-McGurk, Will Sutherland and captain Nic Maddinson were all involved in repeating Kirk's lines.

Currently, the Renegades, like the rest of the competition, are struggling to get fans going to games, getting just 7,087 in their first home game against the Thunder last night.

In a bid to change their form from the last couple of years, the Renegades have started off the season 2-0.

Interestingly, Will Sutherland, son of former chairman of selectors and Australian cricketer James Sutherland, opted not to nominate for the AFL draft in favour of bat and ball.

At the time, Sutherland said in a statement "This was an incredibly tough decision. Most of the advice that I received was to just follow my passion. That sounds easy enough, but not so much when my passion is for both sports."

The Renegades will play their next game on Wednesday night against the Heat at Marvel Stadium.
