The surprise box teased by the Pakistan Super League‘s official twitter handle is now open and it is exactly what the cricket fans would have dreamt of: South African modern legend AB de Villiers is going to feature in the 4th edition of our premier T20 tournament.
It is now official that Mr 360 is available for the biggest T20 event of the year for Pakistani fans in 2019. de Villiers has confirmed his availability for the drafts which will be held in a couple months from now.
In a tweet, shared by the same account, AB talks to his fans in Pakistan, telling them that he is going to play in the 2019 edition of the league.
Pakistan Super League has grown into one of the top T20 tournaments around the world. It has given Pakistanis much to cheer about. I’ve certainly enjoyed watching some of the PSL games on television in recent years. But, 2019 will be different. In 2019, I will be participating in the PSL.

The moment we all had been waiting for ever since the surprise box was teased is finally here and it is an unbelievable feeling. We are already picturing him play before the crowds, sharing the dressing room with young Pakistani players passing on useful tips and wisdom to the youngsters, winning matches for his side with his 360-degrees abilities and whatnot.
I certainly can’t wait and I’ll see you there. Aap ka shukria.
With AB already agreeing to play, the prospects of David Warner and Steve Smith playing PSL look even more bright.
It’s time for PSL. So, there’s going to be a party in February?

The party has already started, hasn’t it? Pakistan waits for AB!
It is going to be the biggest and best ever PSL season, that is for sure! It remains to be seen in the drafts who pick him; the team with the first pick? We will find out soon enough.
