AB de Villiers joins Pakistan Super League [APP] 07 Sep, 2018

LAHORE, Sep 07 (APP):Pakistan Super League is all set for another thrilling edition with the signing of South African legend AB de Villiers for the 2019 season.
De Villiers, who retired from international cricket earlier this year, brings a stellar record with him. With more than 20,000 international runs to his name, de Villiers is, inarguably, one of the greatest modern-day cricketers to have played the game.
Pakistan Super League has grown into one of the top T20 tournaments in the world and I’ve really enjoyed watching PSL matches in recent years, said de Villiers in a video message announcing his signing with PSL on Friday.
A supremely athletic fielder and a batsman who can play shots in all possible directions, de Villiers will be one of the star attractions at this year’s PSL Player Draft.
In his video message, the former South African captain also thanked Pakistani cricket fans for their support.
“PSL is a league that has given Pakistan so much to cheer about and I look forward to being on the field once again,” added de Villiers.
Chairman, Pakistan Cricket Board, Ehsan Mani, welcomed AB de Villiers to PSL. “We are delighted with the signing of de Villiers for Pakistan Super League,” said Mani. “He is a modern-day great and he will add immense value to the tournament. His involvement in PSL will also provide great learning opportunities for our youngsters.”
