Kane Williamson

New Zealand’s very own ‘little master’, Kane Williamson broke into the BLACKCAPS at 20 years of age, after a sparkling career in the New Zealand youth system.

The silky right-hander quickly announced himself to the world with a century on his Test debut against India in Ahmedabad in 2010, six years later at the age of 25 he took over the captaincy of the New Zealand team in a full-time capacity. He has since become New Zealand’s all-time leading Test run-scorer, and the first to reach 8,000 Test runs.

Far from just a five-day specialist, Williamson’s adapted his game masterfully to limited-overs cricket and has been ranked inside the top 10 batsmen in the world in each format for much of the back half of his career.

After expertly leading the team to the World Twenty20 semi-finals in his first assignment in charge, later that year he became the youngest player in history to post a Test century against every top-tier nation.

During the 2019 Cricket World Cup where Williamson led New Zealand to the final, he was named player of the tournament and became the third-fastest batsman, in terms of innings, to score 6000 runs in One-Day Internationals during a round-robin match against Australia.

Williamson continues to make great contributions across all formats, he averages more than 50 in Tests, 47 in ODI, and 33 in T20s, and has over 40 international centuries to his name.

When Williamson is not representing his country he is often found playing County and franchise cricket, having represented teams such as Gloucestershire, Yorkshire, Barbados Tridents, Sunrisers Hyderabad and Edmonton Royals.
