Hashim Amla, AB de Villiers among marquee stars in South Africa’s new T20 league.
Hashim Amla and AB de Villiers feature in the list of eight marquee Protea players named by Cricket South Africa (CSA) for the first two editions of the T20 Global Destination League, set to start later this year.
Quinton de Kock, JP Duminy, Faf du Plessis, David Miller, Kagiso Rabada and Imran Tahir are the other players to feature in the list.
“Each marquee Protea 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,” a CSA media release stated.
Last week, the board had announced the names of the eight marquee foreign international players.
“The selection of our own South African marquee players has been very exciting,” CSA Chief Executive Haroon Lorgat said.
“This announcement is another major step towards establishing our new T20 League in South Africa.
“We must not understate the world class quality of our own players. They are household names across the world and our fans in South Africa will finally get the chance to see them compete against one another at home.
“Together with the international marquee players announced last week, the Protea stars will add great value to the new franchise teams they will represent,” he added.
