AB de Villiers in Pakistan Superleague
De Villiers who announced his retirement in May 2018 left a vacuum in the cricket world. The reaction of fans upon AB’s retirement showed that no one was willing to let go of their favorite cricket star at the peak of his career.
In a video message that Pakistan Super League shared on its Twitter account de Villiers said, “PSL has grown into one of the top T20 tournaments in the world and I have literally enjoyed watching PSL matches in recent years”.
He further said, “PSL is a league that has given Pakistan so much to cheer about and I look forward to being on the field once again”. He ended the message by saying “Aap Ka Shukria” (Thank You All).

Excitement Among PSL Fans
Soon after PSL shared the news of AB de Villiers joining the next season of Pakistan’s very own cricket league, a wave of excitement ran among the fans. Now, all they want to pray of de Villiers joining their favorite team. Few experts and cricket critiques think that Lahore Qalanders, which has remained an unfortunate team of PSL so far may go for de Villiers and consider him as its captain.
With #LahoreQalandars having first pick in PSL4 Draft, without any second thought they'll go for #ABDeVilliers as platinum giving exciting start to Draft. LQ may not retain B.McCullum with two failures as Capt. Meanwhile still any doubt for future of Umar Akmal in LQ?🏏 #cricket
