One of the finest cricketers of modern era and an immensely versatile individual to participate in the field of sports has agreed to take part in the fourth edition of Pakistan Super League.
AB de Villiers announced his participation in PSL through a video message. “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,” AB de Villiers informed about his experience of watching PSL games.
The addition of AB de Villiers in the draft will be a huge boost to the brand value of PSL.
“PSL is a league that has given Pakistan so much to cheer about and I look forward to being on the field once again,” AB de Villiers told in his message for the fans of Pakistan Super League.
Right now, it is uncertain that which team will have services of the South-African great. If old process of draft is followed, he is likely to play for Lahore Qalandars because rules of the tournament state that the team which came last in previous edition of the league will be able to pick a player first in all rounds of draft that will be held for next edition.
If the manner of draft remains same and Lahore Qalandars pick AB de Villiers in their side, the team will have stability and support in their batting line up.
The Qalandars are famous for scoring in blistering way in initial part of innings and failing to continue their momentum in later phase of the innings. That’s why the batting of Lahore remained extremely miserable for most part of the second edition.
The inclusion of AB de Villiers can rectify problems of Lahore because he is the one who can play a fighting knock to guide his team to a respectable total after an horrible start of 20/3. He can also carry on when team need to him to maintain the good platform of 130/1 by his magnificent strokes.
According to source, AB de Villiers is a probable candidate to captain Lahore Qalandars and McCullum who lead Lahore in two editions is unlikely to take part in PSL 4.
The fourth edition of Pakistan Super League will commence in February 2019. In this edition, the league is anticipated to be much bigger and better with the addition of lots of more quality players as compared to the previous editions.
