It's a shame to see the World Cup T20 postponed: Kane Williamson
Captain Kane Williamson, from New Zealand, offered his thoughts on the postponement of the ICC T20 World Cup, saying it was a shame to see the event postponed to 2021. The star of Sunrisers Hyderabad also said he is now looking forward to IPL 2020. Talking with reporters on the sidelines of the practice session of the New Zealand cricket team at Bay Oval on Wednesday (July 22nd), Kane Williamson spoke about the current situation in the cricket world. Since this year's ICC T20 World Cup won't happen, Kane Williamson thought a lot of people are now looking at the IPL. Kane Williamson and the rest of New Zealand 's squad will certainly have been looking forward to the next edition of the global event in Australia after reaching the T20 World Cup semifinals in 2016. Unfortunately for them, this year's tournament will not occur due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Speaking of the likelihood of this year's IPL occurring and the decision by ICC to postpone the T20 World Cup, Kane Williamson said: "They 're looking to host the tournament which is a great tournament to be a part of and draw such an amazing audience by all accounts of the IPL. And throughout this time there's been a natural lack of content so there is a real drive to see that happen and see it happen safely, which is first and foremost."
