Kane Williamson is one of the finest batsman in the modern era of cricket. At various times Ian Chappell & Martin Crowe have ranked Williamson among the top four Test cricket batsman along with Virat Kohli, Steve Smith & Joe Root. Kane Williamson also awarded Man of the Tournament award in ICC World Cup 2019 for his brilliant performance with his cricket bat & for leading the New Zealand cricket team to the finals of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.

Kane Williamson also plays for Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) franchise in Indian Premier League. He also led the team SRH to finals in IPL 2018. He would have been in action with SRH, if IPL 2020 was started on March 29. But however, IPL 2020 was postponed due to the outbreak of coronavirus. The date was not yet announced, but BCCI have planing to play IPL in empty stadiums. Most probably, the dates for 2020 IPL will be fixed according to the dates of ICC T20 World Cup 2020.

"The initial interest was obviously watching the IPL and seeing how big it was, it is the biggest domestic competition, T20 cricket being relatively now, what I saw was an opportunity to gain experience and learn," Kane Williamson told in a recent interaction with Ravichandran Ashwin in his YouTube show 'DRS with Ash'.

"For us, to see the passion of cricket in India is an amazing thing, it is a brilliant competition and there is a high standard, a lot of other countries have followed suit to start their leagues," he added.

When having interaction about the difference between leading New Zealand team & an IPL franchise, the Kiwi skipper Williamson said that,"It is quite different to lead New Zealand and an IPL franchise, initially I did not know what to expect, but like I mentioned it is an Indian competition so you are coming into quite a different culture, I was trying to keep an open mind, there is a lot of experience in all of the groups, it was an enjoyable season to lead the Sunrisers Hyderabad."

"The support staff have been there at Hyderabad for a long time and they have enjoyed success, it was about maintaining the style of play that we are known for," Williamson added.

Kane Williamson have played 41 IPL matches & scored 1302 runs at the average of 38.29.
