New Zealand spearhead Trent Boult is uncertain whether he will appear in the first T20I against the West Indies on Nov. 27. Skipper Kane Williamson, Lockie Ferguson, Mitchell Santner, Jimmy Neesham, Tim Seifert and Boult have returned from the United Arab Emirates following the close of the 2020 Indian Premier League (IPL) in which Mumbai Indians defended their title by beating Delhi Capitals in the final on Tuesday.
They have now been in isolation for 14 days and Boult is not sure if he will play in the first T20I.
“It’s my favorite format and I want to make sure I can get to them,” stuff.co.nz quoted Boult.
“If I can compete in the T20’s, that’s also exciting. But we’ll end here a day before that starts, so I’m not too sure,” he added.
Meanwhile, West Indian players are all set to travel to Queenstown after testing negative for the coronavirus in their third and final test.
The visitors will play two three-day matches against New Zealand A in Queenstown before starting their international matches.
Moreover, the Windies players who were part of the IPL also arrived in New Zealand on Thursday and will now complete their mandatory quarantine.
Both teams will play three games of the T20I series before two Tests against New Zealand begin on December 3 at Hamilton. The first T20I will be played in Auckland on November 27.
