The New Zealand Captain wrote an open letter and lauds the services of the doctors, nurses and caregivers who are serving the country in the global pandemic. Till now 262 coronavirus cases have been reported in New Zealand and globally 4.62,800 have been affected coming in contact with this virus and 20,922 are dead.
Kane Williamson in his letter saluted them for serving the country at this point of time and said every citizen of the country is behind them. Here’s the letter by Kane Williamson:
“Dear doctors, nurses and caregivers,
Events of the past few days have made it clear we're living through a health crisis the likes of which we've never seen. There will no doubt be times in the coming days when the scale of what we're facing will seem overwhelming.
We're so grateful you have our backs. People talk about the pressure sportsmen and women are under to perform, but the truth is we get to do something we love every day for a living. We play games. Real pressure is working to save lives. Real pressure is going into work each day while putting your own personal safety on the line for the good of others.
It's an enormous responsibility that can only be carried out by the best kind of people: those who put the greater good ahead of all else. As Blackcaps, we know how amazing it feels to have the support of a country behind you. In that same vein, we need you to know you're not alone. We want you to know that there's a whole country behind you.
In that same vein, we need you to know you’re not alone. We want you to know that there’s a whole country behind you.
We will get through this and you are a big reason why,”
Kane Williamson and his team was touring Australia and then as the virus started to spread globally very rapidly many international series were called off and after the 1st ODI, the series against Australia was called off.
