A thorough gentleman, a classy batsman plus a leader par excellence. Kane Williamson is perhaps the greatest thing to happen to New Zealand sport after the Rugby All Blacks. The arrival of Williamson in New Zealand has catapulted them to a level that would have been considered impossible in the previous two decades. Armed with a smile and ensuring New Zealand are the best team in the world both on it and off it, Williamson has ensured New Zealand is the ideal role model team in the world of cricket.

As a batsman, Williamson is simply one of the greatest in the business. The signs were already present in 2010 when he made a century on debut against an Indian attack of Zaheer Khan and Harbhajan Singh in Ahmedabad. Virat Kohli may be a limited-overs great. Steve Smith is a great Test batsman. But, Williamson’s consistency across formats and in all conditions is staggering. At home or away, New Zealand has benefited greatly from Williamson. If Brendon McCullum was the hammer that decimated opponents with brute force, Williamson was the Samurai sword that cut down opponents with grace. At one point, Williamson matched Kohli and had an average of 50 in all formats.

As captain, he has one thing that Virat Kohli does not have and that is an ICC event trophy. Williamson got the better of Kohli in the ICC World Test Championship when New Zealand beat India in the final in Southampton in 2021. Ever since 2013, New Zealand has been boosted by the brilliance of Williamson at No.3. In subsequent years, Kane Williamson is all set to become the ultimate great of New Zealand and world cricket.

Kane Williamson Statement.

Kane Williamson is second behind Ross Taylor when it comes to the number of centuries and runs in ODIs and T20Is. Williamson is the rock of the New Zealand cricket team. Apart from South Africa, Williamson has scored a century in every country. During the 2019 ICC World Cup, Williamson was hailed both as a player and a leader. The Kiwi captain’s poise in the aftermath of the heartbreak in Lord’s would have made any other leader despondent. But, Williamson’s smile and acceptance was simply brilliant.
