LAHORE, Pakistan: After the mammoth success of the Pakistan Super League (PSL,) the league organizers are planning to return even bigger with edition four scheduled to be held early next year. PSL’s success has made it one of the top cricket leagues in the world and as it expands, it is claimed, by sources close to the league’s organization body, that some of the most famous cricketing faces will feature in the next edition.
The new season promises to reach the epitome of grandeur and with more than five months remaining in the PSL season 4 kickoff, big names are already showing consent to be part of the league. The latest sensation deemed to be a possible addition to the league is the dynamic and athletic Proteas star AB de Villiers. Multiple reports have confirmed that former South African skipper has agreed to be part of the 4th edition.
His arrival was already hinted twice by the PSL official Twitter account and they spiced it up with a post saying “Kaun aa raha hai (Guess who is coming!)” While a majority of fans had already guessed De Villiers as possible latest signing by PSL, the organizers are yet to officially announce it. “He’s coming to PSL,” confirmed a source to geo.tv “As we speak, he is available for around three weeks, you can say around 7 matches,” the source added.
A great addition to the PSL
Regarded as one of the greatest batsmen of all time, AB de Villiers holds many batting records and, surely, one to add value to the Pakistan Super League. Moreover, there are some serious rumours as well about South African star would be part of the Lahore Qalandars at PSL.
