AB De Villiers Joins Pakistan Super League for Fourth Edition

Former South Africa wicketkeeper-batsman AB de Villiers has agreed to join Pakistan Super League (PSL) for the fourth edition in 2019.

De Villiers – who is known for his explosive batting — did not feature in the first three editions of PSL but has now been successfully roped in by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for the upcoming season.

The flamboyant South African has a vast experience of more than 250 T20 matches – which includes appearances in, both, international and domestic T20 leagues — where he has averaged 35.36 with a strike rate close to 148. He is currently one shy of hitting 300 sixes in T20 cricket as his tally currently stands at 299 maximums.

Over the course of his illustrious career, he broke numerous records which include the fastest century in ODI cricket off just 31 balls against West Indies in January 2015.

The 34-year-old wicketkeeper-batsman retired from all forms of cricket in May 2018, citing ‘tiredness’ as a major factor behind his decision.

“I have decided to retire from all international cricket with immediate effect,” he said in a video posted on his official app. “After 114 Test matches, 228 ODIs and 78 T20 Internationals, it is time for others to take over. I have had my turn, and to be honest, I am tired. This is a tough decision, I have thought long and hard about it and I’d like to retire while still playing decent cricket.”

The fourth edition of the PSL is expected to take place between February and March 2019.
