Here is a look at the ZEE5 video with details related to New Zealand captain Kane Williamson’s take on the various topics:
Kane Williamson recently opened up about being the number one Test batsman in the world and how he looks at the achievement. He said, “In terms of these rankings, they are not a focus of mine. I know how fickle they can be. Much like test rankings as a team and opportunity to play finals. You know we are sitting here now and perhaps we have a ranking but they can quite quickly change from other teams playing the cricket that they play. It is not a focus and I guess you get more satisfaction from just trying to contribute to a team that you really enjoy playing for and I think that is the main thing.” Williamson further added that there are things to improve on and they have been working to get better.
Kane Williamson also spoke highly of other cricketers like Steve Smith, Virat Kohli, and Joe Root who have maintained a high position for themselves on the rank list. He said, “Yeah those are the three players that you mentioned. They are world-class and I certainly admire the way they go about their cricket. You know you can learn a lot from those sort of players especially, they are all different. You have got so many fantastic players that try to move the game forward”.
