Kane Williamson: Before the recent tour of Pakistan by the Black Caps, Kane Williamson, the former Test captain, came under fire from a fan on the radio for appearing to be “totally disinterested in games for the previous two years.” His grandma spoke up to defend her grandson.

“I happen to be Kane Williamson’s grandmother. He’s one of 20 of my grandchildren. The person who called in I think was doing a little bit of stirring. They’re just not material to jump around and yahoo … people express themselves differently.”

Said Williamson-Orr, Kane’s grandmother and former Mayor of Taupo to Newstalk ZB on Thursday

“He’s a very lovely young man and he’s dedicated. A very humble man … he won’t care about criticism, I don’t think he even listens to it. We’re not a family that goes yahooing around…’ that’s nice, that’s good, you’ve earned it.”

Speaking about Kane’s personality and how he handles criticism, Williamson-Orr said

She stated she couldn’t recall how she felt when the Black Caps first selected Kane.

32-year-old Williamson smashed a double century in the test series against Pakistan before leading his team to an ODI series victory. He needs just 39 runs to beat Ross Taylor as New Zealand’s most prolific test run-scorer. Before the two tests against England in February. In the meanwhile, neither Kane Williamson nor Tim Southee will take part in the 6-match series New Zealand will play against India later this month.

Many of the Black Caps’ key players are absent from this game. The biggest absence in this series is without a doubt Kane Williamson, whose leadership will be sorely missed. Readers should be aware that Tim Southee and Williamson have both had rest for the whole of their trip to India.

Because they would play a Test series at home against England, New Zealand wanted to rest both of their key players. They both participated in every match on the Pakistan trip, so they are both rested for the current series. They are neither hurt in the least.

Another prominent player who is not on the team is Trent Boult. Readers should be aware that Boult turned down the New Zealand cricket team’s central contract last year. Although he will primarily play in T20 Leagues around the world. He is still eligible to play for the international team.

In the squads, the Blackcaps cricket board stated that centrally contracted players would be given preference. After a few roster adjustments, Ishan Kishan, Hardik Pandya, and Shardul Thakur are back in the Playing XI for India. However, a few Indian players, including KL Rahul, Axar Patel, and Shreyas Iyer, are not participating in the series.
