De Villiers, who recently rubbished rumours of his comeback to global cricket, has scored over 20,000 worldwide runs in 114 Tests, 228 ODIs and 78 T20Is with 47 hundreds. The team have already retained English opener Alex Hales and destructive batsman Chris Gayle.

Players like Sandeep Lamichhane USA fast bowler Ali Khan have earned contracts as well. Dhaka have also picked Afghanistan batsman Hazratullah Zazai who recently hit six sixes in an over in the Afghanistan Premier League (APL). In all, each team can sign a maximum of 12 local and 9 overseas players. Every side must include four overseas players in their playing XI this season.

De Villiers, who called time on his global career in May saying he was "tired", will turn out for the BPL's defending champions in the tournament which will run from January 5 to February 18, 2019.
