New Zealand’s ODI captain Kane Williamson bagged ODI player of the year award at the New Zealand Cricket awards for his outstanding performance in the year 2019.
Williamson had a magical year with the bat in 2019 where he scored 948 runs at an average of 59.12. Moreover, he led the New Zealand side to the final of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 and almost won them the title for the very first time.
"Kane was simply exceptional at the ICC Cricket World Cup last year," New Zealand head coach, Gary Stead, said in a media release. Kane fully deserved his selection. He builds great partnerships with our well-established middle order and when he bats deep in an ODI inning, we'll invariably be in a good position to win most of those matches."
