Desert Vipers Have Picked Colin Munro As Their Captain for ILT20
In an upcoming inaugural season of ILT20 in the UAE, Desert Vipers Have Picked Colin Munro as their Captain for ILT20. Destructive New Zealand’s left-handed opener Colin Munro last represented his team in February, 2020 but has been a regular feature of top t20 leagues but this will be the first time in his career that Munro will be leading a side.
Munro’s expertise is not only confined to international grounds because he has also pocketed franchise opportunities and experiences over the years of his astonishing career during which he featured in 357 T20 matches and represented teams in IPL, BBL, PSL, CPL and 100 cricket.
Desert Vipers’ director Tom Moody officially stated, “ I think when you have someone who has played the volume of cricket in franchise cricket, around the world as long as Colin has done, you don’t get someone better qualified, because he has worked in more dressing rooms than probably I have, and most people have, over his journey as a player”
Moody further added, “ He has seen many different leadership styles, seen the different trends the game has been taking over recent years and has an intimate knowledge of players around the world in all different conditions. To me, that adds up to a pretty powerful recipe for someone who is going to be making sound strategic decisions under pressure.”
Other than T20 leagues he featured for New Zealand in WC in Sri Lanka (2006), two additions of the men’s T20WC (2014 and 2016), the ODI world cup in England 2019, and last but not least, a Test match against South Africa (January 2013).
Munro being a gentleman and a humble person looks forward to this opportunity as a challenge for himself and believes to collaborate with other seniors for major decision-making processes. He said, “ I think I will be collaborative and will use everybody’s experience in the group. I think I will be trying to make sure everybody has an enjoyable month. It is a team with a lot of players who play franchise cricket and if we can have a really good month, on and off the field, it will go a long way to us playing good cricket.”
