New Zealand captain Kane Williamson has raised some “apprehension” about visiting the UAE for the IPL after 13 members, including two players, of the Chennai Super Kings contingent tested positive for Covid-19 last week.
Williamson, who turns out for Sunrisers Hyderabad, is due to leave on Thursday.
“Obviously that’s bad news,” Williamson told Radio New Zealand on Wednesday. “You don’t want to hear anybody (has) Covid. I hear they are predominantly asymptomatic, so hopefully through another lockdown period, they can come through and we’ll be okay.
“There’s a little bit of apprehension, certainly as you get nearer to the time...you start thinking you do have to be extremely vigilant and disciplined.”
David White, New Zealand Cricket’s CEO, said the board was keeping tabs on the situation in the UAE as well as in the Caribbean Premier League.
