New Zealand will be looking to go the distance in this year’s T20 World Cup in Australia. Captain Kane Williamson has reasons to believe that the side can do well in the seventh edition of T20 World Cup.
Since May 2016, New Zealand have suffered from inconsistency in the T20 format. From 38 T20I matches, New Zealand have won only 15 matches with a winning percentage of 0.789. Kane Williamson-led unit lost their previous T20I series against England and India. Given it is big competition, expect New Zealand to produce competitive cricket in this T20 World Cup.
Pugnacious opener has been standout performer for the side in the T20 format. Left-hander has the ability to smash big hundreds for New Zealand in the shortest format of the game. Since May 2016, Munro is the leading run-scorer for the side in the 20-over format. The 33-year old has smashed 1224 runs in 37 T20I matches at an average of 34.97, which includes three centuries and eight half-centuries to his name.
The team management will be hoping that Munro can continue his rich vein of form with the bat in this T20 World Cup in Australia.
There is no doubt that Captain Kane Williamson is the best player in the batting department in the T20 format. Recently, he has produced excellent scores for the side in the T20I series played against India. He smashed two fifty plus scores against a strong side like India.
Since May 2016, Williamson has accumulated 698 runs in 25 T20I matches at an average of 30.34 with six half-centuries to his name. Given his excellent form with the bat this season, New Zealand will be hoping that Williamson can deliver big runs in this year’s T20 World Cup.
New Zealand leg-spinner has been a regular member of the T20 side since past couple of years. Ish Sodhi has been a consistent performer with the ball in hand. Since May 2016, Sodhi has topped the bowling charts in the T20 format. In 35 T20I matches, Sodhi has claimed 37 wickets at an average of 27.86 with an economy rate of 8.46.
Sodhi will be looking to do well for the side in this T20 World Cup
