KS WILLIAMSON ABOUT:

Kane Williamson is one of the top cricketers New Zealand has ever produced. He is regarded as being on par with players like Martin Crowe, Stephen Fleming, and others of that caliber. This Kiwi captain has a lengthy future ahead of him, but he has already batted his way to the top.

In the classic version of the game, he has completed 6,000 runs in the quickest time. Many people were not surprised by his interest in cricket given that he was born into a family where playing sports was common.

His father, who had played club cricket and under-17 cricket, left him with some of his interest in the game in the form of genes. He is a right-handed batter who also occasionally bowls off-spin. His tendency to follow the rules was initially seen as a weakness, but he quickly proved to be the team’s rock.

Despite a rocky beginning to his international cricket career, Williamson has not only shattered past records but also established some new ones. He has the most century goals for New Zealanders under his belt as of yet.

According to observers, if he keeps up his form and consistently performs on the field, he may very possibly retire with the most runs scored by any New Zealand batsman in history. After previous New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum departed from international cricket, he was an obvious contender for the captain’s role because to his cool but incisive approach on the field.

Sandra and Brett Williamson welcomed Kane Williamson into the world on August 8, 1990, in Tauranga, New Zealand’s Bay of Plenty. Along with his twin brother Logan, he was raised with three older sisters named Anna, Sophie, and Kylie.

The Williamson family believed playing sports to be part of their culture. Club cricket was played by Brett Williamson. Sandra, Kane’s mother, played basketball at the collegiate level. Kane’s sisters were also volleyball players. When the twins entered the picture, Brett changed his role and became their cricket coach.

Kane Williamson first attended “Pillans Point Primary School” before switching to “Otumoetai Intermediate.” He ultimately received his diploma from “Tauranga Boys’ College.” Since the beginning of his life, it appeared as though the cosmos had worked in his favor to be in the right place at the right moment. “Pillans Point” wasn’t your typical school. With nine house teams, it was the only school in the area with a cricket program.

Kane Williamson was already participating in representative cricket by the time he turned 14. When he was 16, he began playing first-class cricket for the senior sides of the “Bay of Plenty” and “Northern District,” and in 2007-2008, he won the “State Championship.”

Williamson had amassed a startling total of 40 centuries before he even dropped out of college.

The under-19 New Zealand cricket team, which he captained at age 17, advanced to the 2008 “World Cup” semifinals in Malaysia before losing to India.

 

KS WILLIAMSON CAREER:

  • In August 2010, he finally entered the international sphere, however his one-day international (ODI) debut in Sri Lanka during the tri-series match against India was disastrous. He was removed for a ninth-ball “duck.” Williamson did not receive any relief in his subsequent innings against Sri Lanka as he was dismissed for a second-ball “duck”. For this 20-year-old rookie, things seemed bleak after two consecutive “ducks.”
  • Williamson bounced back from his prior failures before the year was out in October 2010 by making his first century against Bangladesh in an ODI series, which otherwise was a complete disaster for the Kiwis. His inclusion in the Test squad that same year was guaranteed by the century. A month later, in front of his idol, Sachin Tendulkar, he defeated India and recorded his first Test century. He became the eighth New Zealander to make a century on their Test debut with the 131 runs he scored in the Test match.
  • A struggling New Zealand squad made two significant contributions in 2012, both thanks to two outstanding Test innings from this young attacker. Williamson scored a staggering 135 runs to help his team defeat the Sri Lankan team in Colombo. In addition, he shown great tenacity by scoring an unbroken 102 runs while chasing a massive 389 run total against South African attacker Dale Steyn.
  • Kane Williamson achieved new heights in all game formats in 2014. In a 3-match Test series against West Indies, he made 2 centuries, giving New Zealand a rare victory away from home. He was named the player of the series thanks to his 413 run series total. In a Test match against Sri Lanka that year, he and BJ Watling set a record-breaking 365-run partnership.
  • He became only the second player in the history of the game (after Pakistan’s Yasir Hameed) to hit five straight fifties in an ODI series against India in 2014. He also became the fourth New Zealander to record five or more straight 50-plus ODI scores.
  • He kept breaking records one after another, just when everyone else felt he could not possibly grow any better. As the first “Blackcap” batsman to surpass 2,000 runs in a calendar year, he hit a record 2,633 runs in 2015 across all formats. He was now on par with giants like Ricky Ponting and Kumar Sangakakara. Together with Steven Smith, he has the most Test hundreds that year with 5 total.
  • Kane Williamson began the year at Wellington with an unblemished 242. He recorded centuries in Hamilton, Perth, Brisbane, and “Lord’s.”Williamson’s unbroken 45 and his game-winning “sixer” against Australia at “Eden Park” during the 2015 “World Cup” caught everyone’s attention despite the fact that the Kiwi team’s performance was not very impressive.
  • His young shoulders were burdened with the weighty duty of leadership in 2016, but his poised demeanor and skill at handling stress gave the move the appearance of being simpler than it actually was. He kept breaking records in the game’s extended format.
  • Kane Williamson became the youngest batter to have hit a century against every Test-playing nation with his century against Zimbabwe that year, and he accomplished it in the fewest amount of innings.
  • Sunrisers Hyderabad acquired Williamson for the 2015 Indian Premier League (IPL). He did, however, participate in his first “IPL” game in 2016. For the following few years, the team kept him on, and in 2018, he was named the captain of “Sunrisers Hyderabad.” He guided the group to the championship game, when they lost to the “Chennai Super Kings.”
