The next few months are going to be busy for Kane Williamson. After the Indian Premier League, he will travel to England and will gear up for the ICC World Test Championship final against India.
Before the red ball contest against Virat Kohli’s side, Williamson wants to have a good IPL. And at neutral venues, he feels adapting to the conditions quickly will be the key. Williamson previously said that “Obviously there is no home advantage and we are all playing in neutral venues. There are a few things to get our hands around and try and adapt as quickly as possible whether that’s the style of cricket or the makeup of the team”.
Sunrisers had a quiet auction bringing in just three players — Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Kedar Jadhav, and Jagadeesha Suchith. “It is a really exciting team. Any chance to compete in the IPL is really exciting, you always see a few new faces after each auction along with a large number of players that have been part of the franchise for a long period of time. That’s a nice balance,” he added.
Sunrisers will be playing five matches in Chennai, four in New Delhi, three in Kolkata, and a couple of games in Bengaluru. “I suppose playing a number of games at the same venue actually can get you a little bit read on things. But you will want to do that as quickly as possible because for us we play two-thirds of our games in two venues pretty much. Therein lies a good opportunity, but also there are some obvious challenges as well,” said Williamson.
Sunrisers Hyderabad, who qualified for the playoffs last season in UAE, play their first match of the Indian Premier League 2021 at the MA Chidambaram Stadium on April 11.
