Born on August 8, 1990, Kane Williamson is New Zealand's finest batsman since Martin Crowe. He doesn't play slam-bang cricket, but scores at a brisk pace. His technical competency holds him in good stead across formats. He isn't a big hitter of the cricket ball, but is excellent at finding gaps in the field. Apart from his value as a brilliant fielder and a handy part-timer, Williamson is being looked up as the next in line for New Zealand's captaincy.
