Williamson Believes in Striking Balance Between ODI and T20 Formats

New Zealand’s captain Kane Williamson doesn’t want to predict the future of ODI cricket, but he believes that it is important to strike a balance with the T20 format, which gained huge popularity with time.

New Zealand left it late to secure a spot but after its win against Sri Lanka in Bengaluru, the side qualified for the semifinals of the World Cup 2023 for the fifth consecutive edition.

After winning 8 consecutive matches, India is playing against New Zealand in Mumbai at 2 PM IST. The second semi-final is between South Africa and Australia on November 16, 2023.

Before this edition of the World Cup got underway, there were doubts over the road ahead for the format. However, with some high-intensity cricket, the last month-and-a-half have been exciting for the players and the spectators.

“It is hard to predict the future. But I think we see that when we do have world events, countries against countries, regardless of the format, there is something quite special about that. There will be a balance to strike with the T20 format, which naturally is becoming more on the calendar. But that’s a good thing too, it speaks to what people want to watch, and ultimately, it’s a positive thing for our game,” he said, adding: “But it’s just trying to continue to find that balance…”
