India vs New Zealand Martin Guptill Kane Williamson: On the decision of opener Martin Guptill not to accept the central contract and New Zealand Cricket’s decision to release Guptill from the contract, New Zealand captain Kane Williamson has said that the team will miss Guptill a lot. Guptill, 36, is part of a group that is looking for opportunities outside the country.
At present, franchise cricket is being organized in every month of the year, which is also providing attractive amount to the players. In such a situation, Trent Boult, Jimmy Neesham and Colin de Grandhomme decided to go in that direction. Williamson said, “Obviously he (Guptill) has decided to look for other options. But as a player and an experienced member of the team, he has contributed a lot and at the same time he is one of our greatest white-ball cricketers.” Have been one.”
Guptill, who scored more than 10,000 runs in white-ball cricket, played a big role in New Zealand’s success. But first he was not given a chance to play in a single match in the T20 World Cup and after that he was not selected in the ongoing series in New Zealand.
It is believed that Guptill can play in BBL starting in December. Along with this, he can also be a part of My Emirates in the IL20 league to be held in UAE. De Grandhomme has also retired while Neesham is the only player among the four players who are part of the team preparing to face India on Friday.
New Zealand Cricket has already emphasized that it will give preference to players who are part of the list of central contracts while selecting the team. However, Williamson believes that a middle way should be found where both the player and the team benefit.
Williamson said, “Guptill has not retired. He is available but is exploring his options in other tournaments. He is still excited to keep doing better. I think all players should have this fire within them. A player As a player you have to face many ups and downs. He didn’t get a chance to play but still he was ready to help other players. So now he will be missed but like I said he is not retired yet Huh.”
Williamson is also facing similar questions whether he should play in all three formats and lead New Zealand? But only last week he had insisted that he wanted to continue it further.
