New Zealanders Kane Williamson, Mitchell Santner, Kyle Jamison and physicist Tommy Simsek, who left India after the IPL 2021 kicks off, are currently living in Carinthine in the Maldives, followed by a two-match Test series against England and the ICC World Test for the WTL Championship this week. Gary Stead, head coach of the New Zealand cricket team, provided the information.

“It is not clear whether any players will be given a quarantine when they come to England,” Stade said in a statement on Tuesday. I do not have the full information right now. I mean, the England Cricket Board is still thinking of players coming from the Maldives instead of New Zealand. These players were initially reported to have only three or four days in the Maldives, although this was later extended to a week. Of course there is no facility to practice in this island country, but sometimes a break from cricket can be mind boggling. They can still work on their fitness, so I don’t see it as a bad thing. ‘

Significantly, senior New Zealand fast bowler Trent Boult has decided to return home after the IPL kicks off as promised. In that case, he will miss the first Test against England, although his availability in the second Test is doubtful, but Stead is confident that Bolt will be available for the World Test Championship (WTC) final against India. New Zealand will play the Test match against the Lord’s on June 2 and England at Birmingham on June 10 and the WTC final against India at Southampton on June 18
