New Zealanders, who were part of the now-suspended Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021, including captain Kane Williamson, joined the team’s training camp ahead of the two-Test series against host England. New Zealand Cricket (NZC) gave this information on Monday. The New Zealand IPL team includes Kyle Jamison, Mitchell Sentner, team physicist Tommy Simsek and National Team Strength and Adaptation Coach Chris Donaldson Williamson. They all spent time in the Maldives after leaving India and came to Britain last week.
