Kane Williamson has joined SunRisers Hyderabad’s (SRH) training session after completing a seven-day quarantine. He was seen playing some delightful shots in a net session while preparing for the upcoming IPL season.
SRH posted a clip where the New Zealand skipper is getting back into the groove ahead of the IPL 2021. “Kool, Kalm, Komposed, Kane !! Welcome back,” SRH captioned the video on Twitter.
Kane was glad that his draining quarantine period was complete, and he could join the rest of the side in the training session. He also looked pleased with his franchise’s preparation ahead of their first game of the season against the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) on April 11.
“It’s been a nice 6-7 days. Great to get out, and looking forward to getting to training and having a bit of run around. I know the team has been practising really well and preparing well, which is great to see. It’s nice that pretty much everybody is here now. Looking forward to that first match,” the 30-year-old said.
He also highlighted the importance of Afghan spinner, Rashid Khan, especially with SRH set to play their first five games of the season at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai, a ground that is known to boast spin-friendly tracks.
“Rashid Khan is a brilliant spinner, and he shows that year and year out for the side. I think we have got a nice balance in the team at the moment and with the number of key spin options. Five games in Chennai could be quite key,” he added.
Apart from Williamson, skipper David Warner also completed the mandatory quarantine. Ever since the franchise won the IPL title back in 2016, SRH have emerged as one of the most consistent teams.
However,SRH will be keen to go the distance and win the title this time.
