New Zealand captain Kane Williamson on Wednesday said he is excited about playing the Indian Premier League (IPL) in the UAE, but a lot of “planning and organising still needs to be done” amid the raging Covid-19 pandemic.
The Sunrisers Hyderabad skipper spoke to the media on the sidelines of the national team’s training camp after the ICC postponed the T20 World Cup due to the pandemic.
“Like I said, considering what it actually looks like where it is and all the details that come with it, to play in the IPL is always an amazing thing. So absolutely, it will be great to play in it and be a part of it,” Williamson said, while he also wanted to know more about security arrangements.
“But there are a lot of details to come through before any final decisions will be made. It will be nice to know more.
“By all accounts, they’re looking to host the IPL which is a fantastic tournament to be a part of and attracts such an incredible audience,” he added.
Williamson said he foresees good viewership for the IPL when it happens as people are starved of live sports right now.
