Black Caps captain and the world's number one player Kane Williamson on how to play our favourite summer sport. 'I love batting. Nothing gives me a bigger buzz than taking on the best bowlers in the world. I'm a big believer in the idea that cricket is a team sport but there's that moment, just as the bowler delivers the ball, when it's a pure one-on-one contest...' Why is it important to play the ball late? How do you play the perfect cover drive? What should you do to deliver a deadly in-swinger? Join New Zealand batsman Kane Williamson, a superstar of the game, as he talks through his approach to batting, bowling, fielding and captaincy. It pays to learn from the best, and Kane Williamson is fast-becoming New Zealand's greatest ever.
Kane Williamson is the captain and leading batsman in the Black Caps. He's also a part-time bowler and ardent student of the game. He is 25 but if he continues at this rate, he'll go down as one of our greatest ever players. He is the fifth-fastest in the history of the game to reach 3000 runs. Humble and unassuming, Kane is a future superstar and the perfect role-model for aspiring cricketers.
