Legendary South Africa all-rounder Jacques Kallis has confirmed that he will play in the 2015 edition of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL).
Kallis is currently in Australia, where he is playing for the Sydney Thunder in the Big Bash League (BBL).
“I have really enjoyed playing in the Caribbean with the Proteas and am looking forward to hopefully returning for the CPL,” he said. “It is an amazing place with amazing people and I am excited to see what team I will be playing for. The CPL has produced some fantastic cricket and the fans really bring a special atmosphere so I can’t wait to be a part of it.”
Speaking about Kallis’ decision to play in the CPL, tournament director Tom Moody said: “The addition of these cricketing greats to the roster for CPL 2015 is testament to the growing success of the ‘Biggest Party in Sport’ which has grown significantly since its inaugural year.
“And, with players of this calibre getting on board, CPL is offering young Caribbean cricketers a great opportunity to test their skills against some of the best of their generation.”
