A cricket supporter who made a Nazi salute and mouthed 'white power' during the Melbourne derby says it was a poor attempt at humour.

Brendan McMahon, a Melbourne Renegades fan, raised his arm and mouthed 'white power' as he saluted a boundary scored by Cameron White at the MCG on Saturday night.

The father, a foundation member of the Renegades, has since written to the franchise, saying he 'unreservedly' apologises and any racist undertone was accidental.

'This is a highly embarrassing situation not only for myself, and those who I may have offended, but also the Renegades brand,' Mr McMahon said in a statement through Cricket Australia.

'The gesture itself certainly highlighted just how poor my decision and choice of humour was.'
