Kane Williamson’s Leadership
The New Zealand team made a remark when it won the semi-final match against India in the World Cup 2019 under the leadership of Kane Williamson. Once again, both the teams will face each other in the upcoming five-match T20 series.
The series will start on January 24. On a tour of 6 weeks for Virat Kohli and his team, India will also play two Test matches and three One Day Internationals.
After India completed a three-match ODI series against Australia recently, the team has a tight schedule as it arrives in New Zealand soon.
Kohli On Kane Williamson
Indian captain Virat Kohli said that it was surely getting closer and closer to land the stadium straight, that’s how pressurized the game has become. Later, he spoke about captain Williamson.
There has been a great discussion on New Zealand captain, whether captaining the team in all three formats is putting too much pressure on him.
Kohli also leads all the three formats, and he thinks that captaining is not always fixed on results. It is also about how to keep the team together and encourage his teammates to play well. He thinks Kane has done that well.
“Kane’s team respect and trust him a lot which is important for a leader. With that he is a very smart cricketer”, Kohli added.
Other Players On Kane Williamson
Former New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum defined Kane Williamson as a reluctant player.
Tim Southee, who led the New Zealand team last year in T20Is against India, is also confident that the squad members will surely bounce back.
Moving Towards The Series
New Zealand is moving towards the series with injuries in the fast bowling ranks but they have the benefit of home wickets where they were excellent against India in recent years.
They are currently in the sixth position in T20 cricket, just below India.
