The main round of World T20 in India kicks off in style with title contenders India taking on the exuberant and buzzing Blackcaps at Nagpur. The match will feature top class players from both sides and some of the player battles will be under the spotlight. One of the most exciting player battle is between Kane Williamson and Virat Kohli who have been in top notch form in the recent past.
Kane Williamson and Virat Kohli are two of the world’s best players and it will interesting to see who is able to outshine his counterpart when the two teams come face to face tonight.
Virat Kohli has been instrumental in India’s recent supreme run of form in T20 cricket. He, like he always has, managed to get his team out of trouble in seemingly difficult situations and ensured that the batting department is stabilized and the team bats around him. Virat Kohli has fond memories of last time he faced the New Zealand bowling attack as he scored 70 runs off just 41 balls. Virat has scored 353 runs in 8 matches he has played in 2016. Virat is known for his aggressive nature on the field and this works for him as he keeps on piling up the runs with this nature and attitude.
Kane Williamson ,on the other hand, has been in red hot form in 2016 as he has notched up 260 runs in 5 T20I matches at an average of around of 87. He has also scored 3 fifties with his highest score being 72 runs against Pakistan at Seddon Park. Kane will also be leading the side as Brendon McCullum retired from all forms of cricket so it will be an added responsibility for him so he needs to carry the load and take his team through. Kane has shown in the past that he has the ability to score runs under any conditions and the spin friendly conditions in India should not pose a problem for him but this advantage. Williamson is usually very calm on the field and is a bit like Indian captain MS Dhoni and he tries not to panic in pressure cooker situations.
It is such a pleasant sight seeing these two highly talented players perform in such an emphatic fashion at a young stage of their career and they have a long career ahead of them and you can be rest assured that loads of runs will flow from their bats for times to come. When the two teams are out on the field tonight the whole cricketing fraternity will be keeping a close eye on these two fantastic players as they look to lead their sides to victory.
