New Zealand head coach Gary Stead stated that national skipper Kane Williason will be for the upcomin T20 World Cup.
Williamson suffered injury during the Indian Premier League and in the last match for SunRisers Hyderabad he was left out from the final XI but Stead is confident for Williamson’s return for the marquee event in the UAE.
“He’s just had a very, very slight hamstring twinge, but he’s getting through everything at the moment, he’s feeling good. They (Sunrisers Hyderabad) were out of the competition as well, so I’m not sure if that was something he had to play in.” Williamson joined the New Zealand camp here from the IPL.
New Zealand will play their first match of the T20 World Cup against Pakistan on October 26. Willamson has joined the New Zealand camp after a poor show from his SRH side in the IPL.
“Today we’ve probably trained in the hottest part of the day. Two o’clock we start and it’s somewhere between 35 and 38 degrees probably. You can feel you burn pretty quick. We’ve just got to keep the fluids up. A little bit of shock therapy and getting get people back into the hot weather and working hard,” Stead said.
The T20 World Cup is set to begin from October 17 in the UAE and Oman.
