Kane Stuart Williamson (conceived 8 August 1990) is a New Zealand global cricketer who is right now the chief of the New Zealand public group in all configurations. He is a right-gave batsman and an infrequent off-turn bowler.
Williamson made his five-star cricket debut in December 2007. He made his U-19 introduction against the visiting Indian U-19 group that very year and was named chief of the New Zealand U-19 group for the 2008 U-19 Cricket World Cup. He made his global presentation in 2010. Williamson has addressed New Zealand at 2011, 2015, and 2019 releases of the Cricket World Cup and 2012, 2014, and 2016 versions of the ICC World Twenty20. He made his full-time captaincy debut for New Zealand in the 2016 ICC World Twenty20 in India. He captained New Zealand at the 2019 Cricket World Cup, driving the group to the last and winning the Player of the Tournament grant simultaneously. On 31 December 2020, he arrived at a Test batting rating of 890, outperforming Steve Smith and Virat Kohli as the main positioned Test batsmen on the planet. He was named for the Sir Garfield Sobers Award for ICC Male Cricketer of the Decade, and the honor for Test cricketer of the decade. Ian Chappell and Martin Crowe have positioned Williamson among the best four or five Test cricket batsmen, alongside Joe Root, Steve Smith, and Virat Kohli.
Williamson was the lone New Zealander to be named in the ICC Test Team of the Decade (2011–2020). The late previous New Zealand cricketer, Martin Crowe, noticed that “we’re seeing the beginning of most likely our most noteworthy ever batsman” in Williamson.
