When fitness is ‘outstanding’

NEW DELHI: Predicting the final eleven of IPL teams can be akin to reading tea leaves. Equations can change for various reasons. With only four foreigners in the eleven, those choices must be precise. The form of players, and finding the right balance for the given conditions and opposition all need to be weighed. Add any commercial consideration, and you have a perfect selection cocktail. Now, you can have an entirely different scenario, like it unfolded at the Ferozeshah Kotla on Wednesday. Ahead of the toss in the Eliminator against Kolkata Knight Riders, Sunrisers Hyderabad batsman, Kane Williamson, was doing sprints for over half-an-hour while the others took throw downs. The New Zealand skipper did not even touch the bat. It was an outstanding fitness effort no doubt, but gave an inkling of the lineup. Williamson was second on the extras list!
