South Africa all-rounder Jean-Paul Duminy will not be participating in the fourth edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) due to national and domestic team commitments.  

Duminy — who represented reigning champions Islamabad United in the previous edition of PSL — announced his decision through social media website Twitter.  

“Really enjoyed my time at Islamabad United last season but unfortunately I couldn't commit this year because of domestic and national team commitments but I will be back as and when availability permits,” Duminy said in a tweet.

Earlier PSL had revealed the list of foreign players who will be up for grabs in the Platinum category during the draft for the fourth edition.

As per details, some of the big names of international cricket including former South Africa captain AB de Villiers, former Australia captain Steve Smith and New Zealand’s hard-hitting opener Colin Munro are in the list for the draft.

This will be the first time when De Villiers and Smith will take part in the PSL.

The full list includes De Villiers, Smith, Brendon McCullum, Chris Lynn, Munro, Sunil Narine, Kieron Pollard, Dwayne Bravo, Luke Ronchi, Mitchell McClenaghan, Rashid Khan, Thisara Perera, Shane Watson, Colin Ingram and Imran Tahir.
