New Zealand captain Kane Williamson has shared his views ahead of the upcoming inaugural World Test Championship (WTC) Final. Williamson, who is a close friend of Virat Kohli, his counterpart in the Final, feels that walking out on the ground to do toss will be quite cool. The Final will be played in Southampton from June 18 to June 22, with June 23 being kept as a reserve day.
Both Kane Williamson and Virat Kohli haven’t won an ICC Trophy yet and now one of them will chase the elusive trophy. During a recent interview with International Cricket Council (ICC), Kane Williamson said that playing against Virat Kohli-led India will be a ‘hard case’.
“Over the years, we (Kane and Virat) have played against each other in so many different levels and competitions and have known each other fairly well. So, it will be quite cool walking out there, doing the toss and having a bit of contact in the first Test Championship Final,” he said.
Along with that, Williamson also spoke about the Indian bowling attack and said that it will be an exciting opportunity for them to play the final against the best.
“They have got a fantastic attack. Brilliant, obviously a brilliant side. Throughout we have seen the depth they have as well, certainly saw that in Australia as well. A lot of strengths in their fast bowling and spin department,” he said.
“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,” he concluded.
