Comilla Victorians, who won the BPL title once under the captaincy of Mashrafe Bin Mortaza have announced via Facebook on Monday that they have signed the Australian superstar.

However, they are yet to reveal the name as they have posted a blurred photo and asked the fans to guess the player. But for the cricket lovers, it is too easy to guess the one of the best batsman in the world.

Comilla Victorians wrote:

“A new T-20 T-20 specialist has just joined the Victorian squad. After entertaining all of us throughout IPL, Big Bash and many other T-20 tournaments, he’s joined the Victorian squad now to entertain in the BPL. Can you guess the name of this superstar?”

The upcoming season of BPL is likely to become the most exciting one so far. Former South Africa captain AB de Villiers is all set to play his first BPL season along with David Warner, who is also banned along with Smith. Warner will play for Sylhet Royals while de Villiers is set to play for the defending champions Rangpur Riders.
