Kane Williamson, the captain of New Zealand, is optimistic that the upcoming T20 World Cup match between Pakistan and New Zealand will be played in the right spirit, despite the fact that New Zealand abruptly canceled their tour of the country. Williamson stated that the two teams’ players have a good camaraderie because they have played a lot of cricket with and against each other.
Williamson stated that the entire situation was unfortunate and that they understand how disappointing it must have been for the Pakistan cricket team and their fans. He went on to say that the team is hopeful that cricketing activities in Pakistan will resume soon and that they will be able to tour Pakistan for a full series.
The 31-year-old praised Pakistan’s performance against India and is a fan of the style of cricket the Men in Green are currently playing. He went on to say that Pakistan is a really strong team and that they are one of the favorites for the competition because of their experience with the conditions available in the UAE.
“Without a doubt, they are coming into this tournament feeling pretty good about their chances,” Williamson said. “However, in sports, and particularly in T20 cricket, every team, I think, comes in with confidence knowing that anything can happen on their day.”
