Already in WTC closing, Kane Williamson hails India


New Delhi, February 3

New Zealand’s talismanic captain Kane Williamson has hailed India’s “truly remarkable” triumph in Australia, coming in the backdrop of a disastrous first Test and injuries to innumerable players.

Shot out for a record low 36 in the second innings of the first Test, which they lost in two-and-a-half days, India staged an incredible turnaround to clinch the four-match rubber 2-1 for one of their biggest wins of all time.

The cricket fraternity took note of India’s achievement and Williamson, one of the most respected players in the sport, was no exception.

“Anytime you play Australia it’s incredibly tough and to play in their backyard is an added challenge. For India to go there and perform the way they did, in particular with so many injuries and players out. It was truly a remarkable victory,” Williamson said in a TV interview.

“You throw in the Test Championship context that’s added but I think just the challenge they faced and the way they stood up, I think their bowling unit collectively had seven or eight Tests between them going into the last game and at the Gabba as well,” he added.

Williamson said the Indian team must have “got a huge buzz out of” the memorable win in the series-deciding fourth Test at Brisbane, that has been Australia’s fortress for the last 32 years.

“No doubt, India would have been absolutely thrilled, the supporters watching that match I am sure the team got a huge buzz out of that as well,” he said. — Agencies
