Speaking about the mandatory six-day isolation period, Williamson believes that it would be six long days; however, expects all to be fine at the same time. The 29-year old hopes to get by through reading, fitness, exercise, and would adapt to it.
“I’m sure it will be a longish six days, but it will be fine at the same time. I am looking forward to catching up with all the guys. I will make sure I get through some fitness and exercise and do a bit of reading. Let’s see where the quarantine takes me, I will start acclimatising, I suppose,” he added.
