De Villiers, Parnell and Steyn set to depart from CPL

AB de Villiers, Wayne Parnell and Dale Steyn's time at this year's CPL has come to an end. All three South Africans have been recalled by CSA to attend the annual awards ceremony that they along with the South African Cricketers' Association host.

De Villiers has been Barbados Tridents' leading run-scorer, with 234 runs at an average of 58.50 and a strike rate of 150.96. Steyn has taken eight wickets for Jamaica Tallawahs at an average of 18.62 and an economy rate of 6.82. He may want that tally to improve on Wednesday, when he would take the field for the final time this season. Parnell, also a Tridents player, has picked up seven wickets from six matches.

The tournament organisers confirmed Ahmed Shehzad and Marchant de Lange have been named as replacements by Tridents. An opening batsman for Pakistan, Shehzad is set arrive in time for his team's next match on July 20. If selected, he would be up against the team he played for in 2013, Tallawahs. De Lange, too, has featured in the CPL before, having played for Guyana Amazon Warriors last year. He will join Tridents ahead of their match against St Lucia Zouks on July 23.

Tallawahs have opted for uncapped South Africa fast bowler Dane Paterson as their replacement.
