Kane Williamson ready for Virat Kohli’s bowlers
New Zealand have a fair opportunity to adjust better with English conditions, thanks to their two Tests versus England leading into the World Test Championship final in Southampton.
However, going by captain Kane Williamson’s words, the Black Caps do realise they need to be at their very best against India’s bowlers in the showdown at the Ageas Bowl from June 18-22.
“Yeah, India have got a fantastic attack. Throughout we have seen the depth they have as well, and certainly saw that in Australia too. A lot of strengths in their fast bowling and spin department...
“So yeah, a brilliant side, ranked right up the top, which is fair enough and an exciting opportunity for us to be involved in the final taking on the best,” Williamson told the official website of the ICC.
Asked how much he and Virat Kohli look forward to their conspicuous rivalry on the big stage, Williamson said: “Over the years, we have played against each other in so many different levels and competitions and have known each other fairly well.
“So it’ll be quite cool walking out there, doing the toss and having a bit of contact in the first Test Championship final.”
