Head coach Darren Lehmann expressed his excitement after getting de Villiers in his side.

“World class players don’t just come along every day and to have a player of AB’s stature and skill in the BBL is a fantastic outcome for everyone, not just the Heat. He’s a 360-degree player, great skills, outstanding temperament and an insightful leader. We’re excited to bring him into the group this summer and allow him to showcase his skills for the fans,” he said.

Meanwhile, de Villiers insisted that joining Brisbane was a straight forward decision.

“The Heat have always stood out to me. Brisbane is a lovely city – I’ve been there a few times before traveling with the South African team. I love the place, I love the weather. It’s similar to Pretoria where I’m from.”
