It’s great that IPL is going ahead: Kane Williamson
The New Zealand skipper is pretty much excited about IPL 13. Kane Williamson can train with his teammates if he tests negative three times for COVID -19.
Kane Williamson expressed his excitement in a video posted by the Youtube Channel of SRH. In the video Kane said, “It is great that IPL is going ahead and all the players can get over to Dubai and quarantine and then start looking forward to playing some cricket. I know for everybody out there, it’s been a long time between any sort of normality so it is a very exciting opportunity.”
When asked how he would spend his time in isolation, Williamson said: “I’m sure it will be a longish six days, but it will be fine at the same time. I am looking forward to catching up with all the guys. I will make sure I get through some fitness and exercise and do a bit of reading. Let’s see where the quarantine takes me, I will start acclimatising, I suppose.”
