The Orange Army is likely to miss some of their biggest superstars including skipper Williamson in their first game of the season. Williamson and SRH’s star opener David Warner will be both involved in the T20I series between New Zealand and Australia for their respective national sides. The final T20I will be played on March 29 at the Hagley Oval in Christchurch, following which the Aussie and Kiwi players will travel to India for the IPL 2020.
