ISLAMABAD - Many big names are joining Pakistan Super League and in the latest South African legend AB De Villiers and prolific Australian batsman Steve Smith joined for this year’s PSL edition.
The list also includes the West Indies trio of Dwayne Bravo, Kieron Pollard and Sunil Narine. Bravo was picked up by Peshawar Zalmi last year but could not join the team due to an injury. Pollard, the Multan Sultans all-rounder, said he looked forward to playing in the PSL once again.
