It is suspected that de Villiers is avoiding the PSL because it will be held in Pakistan
Wicket-keeper batsman AB de Villiers skips the Pakistan Super League (PSL) to manage workloads. The South African cricketer retired from playing international cricket in 2018. However, he still plays for Lahore Qalandars. For the next season, his name was withdrawn from the draft.
De Villiers played for the Qalandars in seven matches. He amassed 218 runs at an average of over 54. He has played over 290 T20 matches and scored 8,000 runs.
There are speculations that de Villiers is avoiding the PSL because it will be played in Pakistan. Some players also decided to withdraw from the next season since the country is being avoided by international cricketers.
De Villiers is currently playing for the Tshwane Spartans in the Mzansi Super League. His next appearance will be in the Big Bash League. He will play for the Brisbane Heat where he will only be available for the second half of the tournament.
The PSL draft will be held on December 6. To know more about the Pakistan Super League, read the page on Betwala.
