"The selection of our own South African marquee players has been very exciting," Haroon Lorgat, CSA chief executive, said. "And it will be even more exciting when we engage fans to help us to allocate the "hometown hero" to each franchise team.

"This announcement is another major step towards establishing our new T20 League in South Africa. We must not understate the world-class quality of our own players."

Each of these eight players will be assigned to a franchise that is based in the city that he has been associated with over the years.

De Villiers revealed that he is honoured to be present among the marquee players.
