The upcoming edition of Pakistan Super League (PSL) is set to be a grand affair not only because it will feature some attractive cricketers but also because it will have a star-studded commentary panel. The tournament, which will kick off on February 14 in the United Arab Emirates, will conclude in Pakistan on March 17 with a number of games towards the business end, including the final, scheduled at Pakistani venues.

Among the commentators will be seen former South Africa captain Graeme Smith, former Australia opener Matthew Hayden and former Pakistan captain Ramiz Raja. They will join noted former cricketer-turned-commentators like Danny Morrison, Michael Slater, Kepler Wessels, Bazid Khan and Alan Wilkins. For Smith, the Proteas’ longest-serving captain who played his last international match at the age of 32, it will mark his debut in the PSL as a commentator.

“Pakistan cricket always offers a lot of excitement and I am sure PSL will be no different,” Pakistan’s Geo TV quoted Smith as saying over his joining the high-profile commentary team for the fourth edition of the T20 tournament.

“It’s a quality tournament and I have followed it over the past three years. The opportunity to commentate at this year’s PSL is an exciting one and I look forward to watching talented cricketers from Pakistan playing alongside some leading international stars.”
Smith will do his duty for the PSL for the first two weeks of the month-long tournament.

De Villiers, who will play for the Qalandars, has also agreed to play in the games that will be held in Pakistan, boosting the country’s fans who eagerly want cricket to return to their own soil.
