Kane Williamson: The Sheet Anchor

Kane Williamson wrote his name in the history books when he led a resurgent New Zealand team to the inaugural ICC Test Championship trophy in 2021. It helped the Kiwi skipper brush off the disappointment of the Under-19 World Cup semi-final loss 13 years ago against the same opponents and against the same skipper. Regarded as one of the most consistent cricketers of modern times, 31-year-old Williamson carries the hopes of a whole nation on his shoulder.

Even at the domestic level, Williamson has been an epitome of consistency and is one of the mainstays of the Hyderabad team’s batting line-up. The rules of the Indian T20 League prevent more than four foreign players from being part of a team. While those rules have been crucial in limiting Kane Williamson’s chances for the Hyderabad team, he has never been shy of scoring runs whenever he has been on the field.

Team Hyderabad saw the best of Williamson when he was selected to be the captain of the side in 2018. He helped them finish as the runners-up that season and was the leading scorer with 735 runs. With almost 12 years of experience at the international level, Williamson has more than a few accolades under his belt. His team even went close to winning the 2019 World Cup, only to fall short due to the boundary count rule after the two Super Overs were also tied. Another feather was added to Williamson’s cap when he led the side to the final of the 2021 T20 World Cup. His 85 runs, though, weren’t enough as his side came second best, losing to eventual champions Australia by 8 wickets. Williamson will be wearing the Hyderabad jersey yet again this year after his side decided to retain him for ₹14 crores.

Kane Williamson - Key Skills and Strengths

Williamson has widely been regarded as New Zealand’s finest batter since Martin Crowe. He certainly leads by example and has helped take the country’s cricket to a higher level. He is one of the rare non-Asian players who can play quality spin very well. However, that doesn’t in any way suggest that he has any kind of weakness against quality seam bowling. The batter prefers to wait until the last moment before playing a shot and he is good at it, never being too late in doing that.

His leadership skills could be seen from the very early days when he was still plying his trade with New Zealand’s Under-19 team. The Kiwi board put faith in him and that faith has certainly been rewarded.
