LONDON: New Zealand cricket team skipper Kane Williamson has affirmed that his side will do everything possible to ensure that they get their country’s name engraved on the World Cup 2019 trophy.
Addressing a presser at Lord’s on Saturday, the Kiwis skipper said that the lot was all prepared to play the big game against hosts England on Sunday.
“Instead of adapting presumptuousness, we will go out to play good cricket and unleash everything we have to win the finals”, Williamson said.
Kane has two centuries and two fifties to his name in the World Cup, becoming the highest run-getter for his side with 548 runs in only eight games.
He has an astonishing average of 91.33 which reassures how important he is not only as a captain but also as the backbone of the batting unit of Black Caps.
Mentioning the pressure of the finals and 2015 venture against Kangaroos where Michael Clarke’s side defeated NZ in finals to win World Cup, he said: “A lot has changed in the New Zealand side over a period of four years. We want to win with positive intentions. Our side has learnt from the mistakes of the last World Cup”.
“Pressure is always on both sides. We will have to see which team handles it the best. Instead of focusing on winning, we will consider playing top cricket”, Kane Williamson concluded.
