New Zealand captain Kane Williamson feels the prospect of winning two ICC titles in a year will be his team’s achievement. He also said that his focus will be on playing well and executing his plans to perfection. New Zealand are in their third final of an ICC event and second this year after winning the inaugural World Test Championship in Southampton in June this year.
“It will be an achievement,” Williamson said at the pre-final press conference on Saturday. But where we stand at the moment is the game of cricket. I think it’s a really exciting opportunity. We look forward to tomorrow’s match.”
Williamson lamented the loss of wicketkeeper and batsman Devon Conway ahead of the final. In the first semi-final against England in Abu Dhabi, Conway hit his bat hard after being stumped for 46 off 38 balls, resulting in a fifth finger injury on his right hand. Obviously, Devon’s loss is huge. You know, he has been a big part of all formats for us.”
