Mitchell Santner to play CPL starting Aug 18
Wellington, Jul 31 (UNI) New Zealand all-rounder Mitchell Santner is all set fly through America to reach Caribbean for the upcoming CPL.
The spinner is slated to play for Barbados Tridents in the CPL starting from August 18.
"It's an interesting one. I'm going through America and I'll park up in the [airport] lounge in the corner somewhere. It's one of the risks we've got to think about," Santner told stuff.co.nz.
"They've put an extensive booklet together about what happens in each circumstance which has been good, and a bit of clarity around where we're staying. It seems like they've got it under control."
"At this stage we'll just fly straight across [from the Caribbean]," Santner said of getting to the IPL. "I'm not sure what quarantine looks like yet [before the IPL], but there's some other big dogs like Dwayne Bravo and Brendon McCullum I can tag along with."
Santner will be seen with his teammates Lockie Ferguson Jimmy Neesham, Trent Boult, Mitchell McClenaghan and Kane Williamson for the IPL in the UAE beginning from September 19.
Santner was part of the last international match that took place before the Covid-19 crisis hit the world, when New Zealand took on Australia behind closed doors in Sydney in March this year.
