New Zealand captain Kane Williamson hasn’t really lived up to his reputation in the shortest format of the game of late. The experienced cricketer struggled to improve his strike-rate, which is a bitter truth.

The right-handed batter hardly showed intent during the first semi-final against New Zealand in the 8th edition of the ICC Men’s Twenty20 World Cup 2022 in Australia.

He scored 46 off 42 balls including a four and a six, which is pretty low considering a player of his calibre. His knock didn’t help the team at all as they posted a modest total of 152/4 in 20 overs.

On the other hand, Pakistan cricket team won the game by six wickets with 5 balls to spare in the semi-final. Kane Williamson came under fire for his slow batting approach that put the team on the back foot in the semis.

Dinesh Karthik urges Kane Williamson to show intent in the chase

Meanwhile, India’s senior wicketkeeper-batsman Dinesh Karthik has now urged Kane Williamson to show intent, especially in the chase. Kane is known to start the innings quite slowly before switching gears.

However, his recent form tells otherwise as he has been playing run-a-ball knocks which is not helping the team one bit. During the second T20I between India and New Zealand, skipper Kane was the lone performer in the game.

He scored 61 off 52 balls where he struck as many as 4 boundaries and 2 maximums before he was bowled by India’s paceman Mohammed Siraj in the penultimate ball of the 18th over.

The third and final T20I between Team India and New Zealand national cricket team will be played on November 22, Tuesday at McLean Park, Napier. It will be quite interesting to see which team will use their resources properly to win the game. Team India needs a win to seal the series whereas New Zealand will be looking to level the series.
