Former England batsman Kevin Pietersen will make his Big Bash League (BBL) debut this year after signing a two-year deal with the Melbourne Stars.
Pietersen’s signing has seriously bolstered Melbourne’s batting line-up, which already boasts talented batsmen like Luke Wright, Glenn Maxwell, David Hussey and Cameron White.
“I’m very excited about joining the Melbourne Stars and look forward to playing with some of Australia’s best T20 cricketers,” Pietersen said. “Joining the Melbourne Stars was an easy choice for me when you look at the players we have and the amazing off-field support staff, and don’t forget our home ground, the MCG.”
White added: “We’re really looking forward to Kevin being part of our club. He’s a tremendous addition to the squad and will fit in really well, and he’ll hopefully provide us the edge to go deeper into the tournament this year.”
