Its important to tap into their experience. It will certainly help our cause. A lot of them have played alongside a lot many international cricketers.” He said that while spin bowling will be an important part of the tournament, seam bowling would not be left behind. “Yeah, especially when you come to India you assume that the ball will spin on some of these surfaces. We have got some young, exciting spinners and they will be looking forward to bowl. Spin is likely to play a part, but I have no doubt that seam will also play a big part and we have world-class seamers in our line-up. They are all fit,” said Williamson. Heaping praise on Martin Guptill, Williamson said: “Martins been absolutely smashing for quite a while and thats huge for our side. He has scored huge amount of runs so quickly and he has won a lot of games for us. We are certainly hoping that he continues that and keep playing with that freedom.” On the issue of corruption in the game, he played safe. “Education around those issues is there. You go to at least one seminar every year and everyones well educated. As far as our side is concerned, we are just excited to come here to play in a great tournament like this T20 World Cup.” PTI NRB SSR CM CMadvertisementlast_img
