AB de Villiers has signed for the Pakistan Super League 2019.

Scheduled to take place February.

Doubt we will see him in Big Bash 08 :-(

PS now reading he could be a "replacement player" and have a short term appearance

English cricketers set to dominate Big Bash like never before

INTERNATIONAL imports are often some of the ‘must buy’ players in SuperCoach BBL, particularly those whose representative countries are not performing at international level throughout December, January, and February.
The best of them become ‘set and forget’ — you know they’ll step up when the moment arrives, either hitting out at the top of the order and getting their team off to a cracking start or taking those key ‘death’ wickets, earning big SuperCoach points in the process.
We’re taking a look at the key available international players, some of whom have their signature ink still drying on fresh contracts, some who are sticking with their BBL|07 side, and some who are yet to commit to a new year’s cause.

Regardless of the fact they’ll tour the West Indies at the end of January and start of February, here are five English players you need in your SuperCoach BBL side:

1. Joe Root (Sydney Thunder)
The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) has cleared Root and English T20I vice-captain Jos Buttler to play the first half of the tournament as it falls between winter tours to Sri Lanka and West Indies. The English skipper will be a favourite of SuperCoaches, but will his anticipated sky-high price be worth it, given he’ll leave to prepare his side for an overseas tour mid-season? Root has never played an overseas T20 tournament, and will make his Thunder debut against the Melbourne Stars on December 21.

2. Jos Buttler (Sydney Thunder)
The gap in international commitments could allow Root and Buttler to play up to seven matches in the first half of BBL|08. One of the premier T20 players in the world, Buttler has signed up with the Thunder once more, having played six times for the them in the 2017-18 season, where he opened and kept wicket, hitting 67 and 81 during a six-game run before leaving to join up with England’s ODI squad. He previously played for Melbourne Renegades several years before, playing five games with a top score of 61. As a top of the order player and a neat catch of the ball behind the stumps, he’s an astute buy as both a ‘keeper’ and a batting option in SuperCoach BBL.

3. Ben Stokes (TBC)
The big question around Stokes is will he be down under this summer? Latest rumours have it that the Sydney Sixers, the BBL team who were leading the chase to sign him, have eliminated any formal approach until after a cricket disciplinary commission has reached a decision on any punishment for his stoush in the streets of Bristol, for which he escaped conviction. But as an allrounder who is a big hitter and a key bowler at any level of cricket, he’s worth his weight in SuperCoach gold ... at least until he heads to the Caribbean towards the pointy end of the season.

4. David Willey (Perth Scorchers)
The English allrounder will be back at the Perth Scorchers in BBL|08, as the club begins a new season under the watchful gaze of new coach, former Australian batsman Adam Voges. Featuring in 20 matches over the past three seasons, Willey could be one of those classic set-and-forget choices as either a batsman or a bowler, given that his international commitments will come after the conclusion of the BBL season. With the allrounder flexibility of a dual position player he won’t be cheap. However, he has taken 24 wickets at an economy rate of 7.39, and scored 200 runs at a strike rate of 119.05, complete with a highest score of 55 in his 20 matches.

5. Adil Rashid (Melbourne Stars)
Switching from the Adelaide Strikers to the Stars, who had a torrid BBL|07 season, Rashid currently sits 11th in the ICC’s ODI bowler ranks and 14th in T20 cricket, and has been a vital part of England’s limited-overs sides for several years. He recently announced he would forego any red ball county cricket to focus on his white-ball ambitions, particularly the T20I World Cup in England in 2019. It’s great news for SuperCoach BBL fans, with the spinner set to be a key player in the upcoming BBL|08 season. Suiting up nine times for the Strikers and taking 16 wickets with an economy rate of 6.52, and a strike rate of 13, he looks as an astute buy for SuperCoach BBL coaches.

Willey not in England's ODI squad to Sri Lanka due to a back injury.

Stokes hearing about bringing the game in disrepute is Dec 5 & Dec 7.

Be interested to know if Buttler , Denly , Rashid , Root , Willey will have it in their contracts to fly back home for Xmas like KP used too.

Geez these journalists are shocking , England's white ball component of the WI DOES clash with BBL08 hence why Buttler and Roy are here for about 7 games each , Rashid and Willey will also be affected if selected by England.

Think a few of the English boys will be joining Morgan in the UAE for their T20 league.

The Heat have just announced Mujeeb ur Rehman as their second overseas signing.

People loved Rashid Khan last season , can't wait to see this guy in action.

How do I get a job as a T20 agent ?

Melbourne Stars have just announced the signing of Lamichhane.

He will start , then leave for BPL , then return.

Interestingly previous reports had Adil Rashid & Bravo signing for the Stars , wonder if one is going to the UAE T20X

I believe that Lamichhane is unavailable during the middle stages of the tournament. Parkinson will come in as his replacement during that period.

Yep that is what I posted earlier , he is leaving for the BPL (Jan 5 to Feb 8) , will need to research Parkinson some more.

Sounds to me that Bravo will be in the UAE , have to wait and see , less than 2 months to go.

RDT is leaving things late with SC opening

Lamichhane signs with Melbourne Stars

Nepal legspinner Sandeep Lamichhane has joined Melbourne Stars for the upcoming Big Bash League season. The 18-year-old will play for them in two stints: he will join the squad by December 10 before leaving to play the full season of the Bangladesh Premier League on January 5, and then will return to Australia for the remaining BBL games.

In January, Lamichhane made history by becoming the first Nepal cricketer to feature in the IPL when he was signed by Delhi Daredevils. Soon after, he was a well-sought entity in T20 leagues around the world, landing a contract in the CPL, the Global T20 Canada, the BPL and now the BBL. Lamichhane, however, has experience of playing grade cricket in Australia in 2016, when he was mentored by Michael Clarke.
The Pakistan fast-bowling great Waqar Younis has monitored Lamichhane's progress closely. Waqar now coaches Sylhet Sixers, and the team recently signed up Lamichhane for the upcoming season of the BPL.

"I am always for youngsters and good legspinners are a great wicket-taking option," Waqar told ESPNcricinfo. "When I saw Sandeep in early 2017 I knew I wanted to give him a chance. We even called him for Sylhet Sixers in BPL 2017. However, he could not come because of his national duty.

"He is quite special and unique. He has skills, grit, determination and a hunger to make a difference. This makes him a complete package."
Afghanistan's Rashid Khan, who played in BBL 2017, had played after his country had Full Member status. This year, Rashid will be joined in the BBL by his countryman Mujeeb Ur Rahman, who was signed by Brisbane Heat last week.

Lamichhane first came to the limelight at the 2016 Under-19 World Cup in Bangladesh, where he was the second highest wicket-taker with 14 scalps in six games.

Earlier this year, Lamichhane took 13 wickets in the ICC World Cup Qualifier, playing a pivotal role in helping Nepal gain ODI status for the first time. He was also named in the World XI squad that faced West Indies at Lord's on May 31, in the Hurricane Relief T20 Challenge match.
