Kane Williamson does not want to predict the future of ODI cricket, but the New Zealand captain believes that it is important to strike a balance with the T20 format, which has gained immense popularity with time.

“Playing in the tournament and being involved in world events are always special from a player’s perspective, and continuing to provide that context in the sport, whatever the format, is really important,” Williamson said on Tuesday.

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…”
