List of foreign players for T20 Big Bash League announced; Does MS Dhoni and Yuvraj Singh feature in the list?

There is talk that Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Yuvraj Singh, two star players of Indian cricket, will play in the upcoming Big Bash League.
Yuvraj announced his retirement from international cricket in 2019 and Dhoni in 2020. Yuvraj retired from all forms of cricket and played in the Global Twenty20 League in Canada.
Dhoni announced his international retirement on August 15 2020 and then played in the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League in September held in the UAE.
After the IPL, there is talk that Dhoni and Yuvraj Singh will play in the Big Bash League. The competition will be held from December 10, 2020 to February 6, 2021. The names of the foreign players participating in the tournament were announced recently.
Cricket Australia on Monday introduced new three rule innovations (Power Surge, X-Factor Player, and Bash Boost) that will be implemented in the upcoming edition of the Big Bash League (BBL).
The endeavour and enterprise will be rewarded in the second innings with the introduction of the Bash Boost. Four competition points will be up for grabs per match - three points for the overall win and one Bash Boost point, awarded halfway through the second innings. The team chasing will receive the Bash Boost if they're above the equivalent 10-over score of their opposition. If they're trailing, the fielding side will receive the point.
The teams will also have the ability to change strategy at the 10 over mark of the first innings and substitute in an X-Factor player. This player, named as either the 12th or 13th player on the team sheet, can replace any player who is yet to bat or bowl no more than one over.
In the upcoming edition of the BBL, the batting side will be given more control over its innings with the addition of the Power Surge. The power play has been shortened to four overs, fixed to the start of the innings. An additional two over "Power Surge" can be taken by the batting team any time from the 11th over onwards.
The league will feature eight teams: the Adelaide Strikers, the Brisbane Heat, the Hobart Hurricanes, the Melbourne Renegades, the Melbourne Stars, the Perth Scouts, the Sydney Sixers and the Sydney Thunders. Let's find out the names of the foreign players who have been contracted by these teams so far.
Strikers - Rashid Khan, Phil Salt, Danny Briggs; Brisbane heat - Tom Banton, Mujib Ur Rehman, Dan Lawrence, Louise Gregory; Hobart Hurricanes - David Malan, Keemo Paul, Colin Ingram, Jan Doren; Melbourne Stars - Johnny Bairstow, Nicholas Pooran, Zahir Khan - Melbourne Stars.
