PROFILE

Kane Williamson is New Zealand cricket’s next ‘big thing’. After taking three innings to score his first ODI run in August 2010, a brave maiden century in October 2010 went in vain at Mirpur in a series where Bangladesh whitewashed New Zealand. Hopes that the next Martin Crowe had arrived were greatly elevated the following month after he made a chanceless 131 on Test debut against an Indian side including Sachin Tendulkar, his childhood hero, at Ahmedabad. However, as with many New Zealand batsmen, consistency has remained elusive. The talent remains clear though: in October 2011, he smashed New Zealand’s second-fastest ODI ton, a 69-ball affair against Zimbabwe at Bulawayo, followed up in March 2012 by an unbeaten 102 against South Africa, possessing a fierce attack, to save the Wellington Test. Williamson, relatively small in stature and reliant on graceful timing more than power, is capable in Twenty20 cricket took, bowls useful  offspinners and is agile in the field. Williamson, who averages 57 in first-class cricket and 62 in List A matches for Northern Districts, made a mammoth 284 not out against Wellington in the 2011-12 Plunket Shield, a record for his province. Possessing a keen cricketing brain which has seen him impress in two county cricket stints with Gloucestershire, Williamson stood in as New Zealand captain during the June-July 2012 tour of the West Indies aged 21.
