Overseas players have made a massive impression in the IPL over the years. The T20 tournament gives an opportunity for cricketers from all across the globe to play, learn and interact with each other. Youngsters from India get an opportunity to rub shoulders with the best overseas talent and vice versa. As we build-up to the latest edition of the IPL, here’s a look at five players from South Africa to watch out for.

1. AB DE VILLIERS

AB de Villiers is undoubtedly the biggest name from South Africa to feature in the Indian Premier League (IPL). His incredible hitting range has made him a darling of Indian crowds over the years. This year, for the second season in a row, the IPL will be played without any fans as the threat of COVID-19 remains as big. Cricket lovers will have to enjoy de Villiers’ breathtaking stroke play from the comfort of their homes. Last season, de Villiers played some sensational knocks for RCB, lifting them to victory from grave situations. The franchise will expect nothing less from ABD this season.

AB de Villiers’ IPL stats: Matches - 169, Runs - 4849, SR - 151.91
