AB de Villiers is set to make his BBL debut this season after signing with Brisbane Heat.
He will join them in the second half of the competition from December to February.
The team coach Darren Lehmann was overjoyed to have him in the side.
“World class players don’t just come along every day and to have a player of AB’s stature and skill in the BBL is a fantastic outcome for everyone, not just the Heat,” he said.
“He’s a 360-degree player, great skills, outstanding temperament and an insightful leader,” he added
De Villiers represented South Africa in 114 Tests, 228 ODIs and 78 T20Is before calling it a day last year.
The 35-year-old maintains that it was not a tough decision to make
“They play the kind of brand that I want to be associated with. It’s quite aggressive, they go after the attack, and I’m looking forward to going to the Gabba,” he said.
“It’s a beautiful cricket field. It’s a great wicket and games are always of a high quality,” he went on to say.
This is good news for ABD fans as they were longing to see him play. So let’s brace ourselves for December when we see him give the ball a big bash.
