The New Zealand Cricket Board may withdraw its players from the tournament in the wake of rising Covid-19 cases. New Zealand Cricket has said that they are constantly monitoring the situation and that they are in touch with IPL franchises. Eight cricketers, including big names such as Kane Williamson, James Neesham, Trent Boult, are taking part in the IPL.

According to ANI News, New Zealand public affairs manager Richard Bock told the New Zealand Herald, “We are monitoring the situation and we are in constant contact with the IPL franchises. We are ready to talk about all sorts of possibilities if the situation worsens. If a Test player is caught for discussion, perhaps it is more important for him to continue his tour in England. New Zealand on Thursday banned the entry of people traveling from India. The decision was taken by the New Zealand government after it was revealed that 17 of the 23 people who arrived in New Zealand from India were corona-positive.
