In the upcoming tour to New Zealand, West Indies will play its first match of the tour that will be T-20 international with half players from the squad as the remaining players are committed to IPL and will be available from the second. But coach Phil Simmons doesn’t seem worried about this.

“It is little difficult,” said Simmons

West Indies has to play three T-20 internationals and they have announced their squad which will tour to New Zealand this month. The problem with West Indies is that half of its members from the squad are currently busy in the Indian Premier League (IPL). 

As the Covid phase is everywhere, each player needs to remain in fourteen days of isolation. Even if they go to New Zealand after completing IPL in the United Arab Emirates, they have to stay in isolation which will end till 27th November and this will make them skip the first T-20 match.

West Indian coach Phil Simmons is not taking this as a big issue although he accepted that playing without T-20 specialist players will be a little difficult but he is okay with the half team he has to face the Kiwis. Simmons shared in a chat with New Zealand Cricket’s website.

Some players from New Zealand are also committed to the world’s most popular cricket league. So, they also have to manage the schedule and the squad. The main players from both sides will remain in isolation until the morning of the first game.

Coach Simmons has arrived in New Zealand with the half squad and other supporting staff on Friday and is kept under isolation for 14 days as per the protocols. The remaining will join the team soon after the IPL.

According to Simmons, this will be positive for the West Indies team that their players are arriving after playing the toughest league in the world. They will be sharp in the second game and the remaining series. 

The players who are currently in UAE have hot used to the bio-bubble conditions but the players in the remaining squad have to experience a new environment including Coach Simmons. He said that they have three T-20 internationals and two tests after so they will get habitual with the secure bubbles.


Having a strong bench is a key to success for any team and hope Simmons knows that. Well, the West Indian powerhouses are presently raining sixes in the IPL and we are enjoying that.
