AB de Villiers likely to bag 3.5 Million for BBL contract
The former South African skipper, AB de Villiers is likely to bag a huge amount of 3.5 million Rands for the Big Bash League contract. According to the sources, Sydney Sixers are the frontrunners to grab the dangerous batsman.
AB de Villiers is currently in India playing the Indian Premier Leauge for Royal Challengers Bangalore. Even though his team has not qualified for the playoffs, the star player has been in great touch with the bat. The right-hander has scored 431 runs from 11 innings that he played this season.
The 35-year-old is arguably an asset to any team in the world across formats. He can also provide leadership qualities to the team. Moreover, as he retired from international cricket, he will be available for the entire season.
The Sydney Sixers manager, Jodie Hawkins said that he would be delighted to have AB in the squad. He also said that he had already made an offer to the South African cricketer.
“We would be absolutely delighted to have AB join the Sixers and have made an offer for this summer,” Hawkins said.
“We understand there are a number of BBL clubs wanting to welcome AB, but we believe we offer him a great option to experience the Big Bash, living in Sydney by the beach, playing at one of his favourite grounds, the SCG, and just enjoying what Sydney offers in summer, that’s a pretty good proposition. He’d also be great working with some of our young stars like Josh Philippe, and meeting our incredible fans,” he added.
