The Indian captain Virat Kohli defended his counterpart Kane Williamson ahead of the T20I series against the Kiwis. Virat backed Williamson’s poor form which was dominant against Australia in the recent Test series. New Zealand’s captain has been under criticism recently for his team’s ordinary performances.
On the other hand, the Indian captain feels that the criticism is baseless as the public is quick to jump the guns on the captains. "I don't think leadership can always be determined by the results" he said. "It's also about how you can get the team together and get the guys functioning under you as well, which I think Kane has done wonderfully well"- Virat said.
Kane Williamson took New Zealand’s team into the final of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 with his incredible captaincy skills. Post World Cup 2019, New Zealand has seemed an average team and even Kane’s own performance has gone down significantly.
