Cape Town - After performing well for the Sydney Thunder in Australia's Big Bash League, South African Jacques Kallis has signed a lucrative deal to play in the Caribbean Premier League.
The former Proteas all-rounder was recently named player of the tournament after the completion of the Big Bash League.
According to Netwerk24, Kallis has signed a deal to play for the Trinidad & Tobago Red Steel in the Caribbean Premier League. The contract is believed to be more than R1m.
Kallis will again play in the Big Bash League next season, but his agent, Dave Rundell, confirmed that his client will only assist the Kolkata Knight Riders as batting consultant in the upcoming Indian Premier League.
Other South Africans who will also play in the Caribbean Premier League are: Tabraiz Shamsi (St Kitts & Nevis), Justin Ontong and Robin Peterson (Barbados Tridents), Rusty Theron (Jamaica Tallawahs), Henry Davids (St Lucia Zouks) and Johan Botha (Trinidad & Tobago Red Steel).
