Derbyshire fast bowler Hardus Viljoen will continue his winter travels by adding Pakistan to the growing list of visa stamps in his passport.
The South African has played in the inaugural T10 tournament in Afghanistan during the close season as well as heading back to his homeland to play for the Johannesburg-based Lions.
The Pakistan Super League now awaits the 28-year-old who will be wearing the colours of the Multan Sultans when the tournament gets underway in February.
Viljoen joins fellow overseas stars Kieron Pollard, Kumar Sangakkara, and Derbyshire team-mate Imran Tahir in leading the Sultans’ charge for silverware with captain Shoaib Malik.
For fans of cricket in this country, there are just 99 days to wait until the 2018 cricket season begins.
