Kane Williamson playing Guitar Video

New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson turns 30 today(08/08/2020). The captain earned respect after the epic final battle between England and New Zealand during the ICC World Cup.

A true gentleman of the sport, Williamson is still hailed for his graceful acceptance of New Zealand’s heart-breaking defeat against England via boundary count in the final of last year’s 50-overs World Cup.

Williamson has 34 international centuries for New Zealand, a Test batting average of 50.99, and an ODI batting average of 47.48. He also led Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Sunrisers Hyderabad.

ICC’s Special Video on Williamson’s Special Day:

On Williamson’s birthday, ICC took to Twitter and shared a video of him showing off his skills with the strings while playing a ‘bat guitar’ – a guitar custom made which looks like a bat for him.

“Happy birthday, Kane Williamson – smooth with the bat, smooth with the bat guitar,” ICC wrote on Twitter.

Wishes From His IPL Franchise:

The team’s Twitter handle shared a video to wish him on birthday day with the caption, “Always smiling Smiling face with open mouth and smiling eyes Loved by every cricket fan Orange heart Happy birthday to an extraordinary cricketer and human being, Kane Williamson!”

Kane Williamson’s Record in Cricket:

In June 2015, Williamson became the fifth-fastest batsmen and fastest New Zealander to score 3,000 runs, getting them in just 78 innings.

Williamson managed to score a century against all the other Test-playing nations and became the thirteenth batsman the youngest player to achieve this feat.
