T20 World Cup: Our batters maximised short boundary vs Namibia, says Kane Williamson after big win

After thrashing Namibia by 52 runs, New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson has said that the pitch was challenging but the batters of his team maximised the short boundary side of the venue.

“I think we all know what we have to expect here (Sharjah), it’s a real scrap. We tried to maximise that short side, it was a challenging surface. The guys played well to get us to 160,” said Williamson at the post-match presentation.

“You need to build those partnerships and trying to maximise towards the end. An over or two can crack the game, that was our focus today. We got some reasonable match-ups and got what’s about par on this wicket,” he added.

New Zealand produced a clinical performance all-round in their big win vs Namibia and moved a step closer to the semifinal qualifications in T20 World Cup 2021.

Blackcaps will face Afghanistan in their next match and Williamson said he is looking forward to that clash.

“They (Afghanistan) are a strong side and they have played good cricket, they have some match-winners throughout their team. Looking forward to that challenge,” he said.
