South Africa One-Day International (ODI) skipper AB de Villiers and veteran batsman Hashim Amla are among the eight marquee South Africa players, who will be representing the various franchises in the first two editions of the new T20 Global Destination League which gets underway later this year. This follows the last week’s announcement of the eight marquee foreign international players.
Each marquee Proteas player will be allocated to a new franchise team based in the city he has either been historically associated with or a city with which he can build a strong association.
The other marquee Proteas players who have agreed playing league contracts with Cricket South Africa (CSA) are: Quinton de Kock, JP Duminy, Faf du Plessis, David Miller, Kagiso Rabada, Imran Tahir.
“The selection of our own South African marquee players has been very exciting,” commented CSA Chief Executive, Haroon Lorgat. And it will be even more exciting when we engage fans to help us to allocate the “hometown hero” to each franchise team.
As announced last week, each franchise team will also be allocated an international marquee player. This means that each team will start with two marquee players named in their 17-man squad. The rest of the squad will be assembled by the team owners and coach in a player draft system.
