WTC Final 2021: Former India Wicket-keeper batsman Parthiv Patel has praised New Zealand Captain Kane Williamson, for being decisive in his footwork & knowing how to play every ball perfectly to its merits. India & New Zealand will be coming into a face-off in the WTC final 2021 at the Ageas Bowl, Southampton, beginning June 18.

“What Virat Kohli is for India, we are talking for Kane Williamson for New Zealand. Someone who is experienced, someone who knows how to play in the English conditions, he has done really well against England in England, & his ability to play really late. I think, especially when you are playing in England that makes a big difference”, said Parthiv Patel on Star Sports Show ‘Game Plan’ ahead of the WTC Final 2021.

“You have got to play under your eye line all the time, so to get him out, you have got to bowl really well against him. You have to make sure you are hitting the areas more often than not. The ability which he has- with correct defense & is always decisive about his footwork”, Parthiv added.
