South Africa swashbuckling batter David Miller has been roped into the Los Angeles Knight Riders squad for the upcoming season of Major League Cricket (MLC) 2024.

The franchise confirmed the new signing in their social media account on Thursday. Miller will be joined by players like West Indies duo Sunil Narine, Andre Russel and former Indian cricketer Unmukht Chand and Australia's Adam Zampa.

Bangladesh ace-allrounder Shakib al Hasan was also signed by the franchise. He is expected to join the team after the conclusion of the T20 World Cup which will be played in USA and West Indies.

The defending champions MI New York featuring former West Indies cricketer Kieron Pollard will take on 2023 runner-up Seattle Orcas in the opening match on July 5.

Later on July 5, Faf du Plessis’ Texas Super Kings will face off against Sunil Narine’s LA Knight Riders in Texas, where Shakib is also likely to feature.

The competition will also feature Australia’s 2023 World Cup winners Steve Smith, Travis Head and Glenn Maxwell who will play for Washington Freedom, coached by Ricky Ponting.
