T20 World Cup 2022: Kane Williamson, the captain of New Zealand, praised his bowling attack on Tuesday before their pivotal ICC Men’s T20 World Cup semifinal match against Pakistan, claiming that they have excelled throughout the competition.
The Kiwis performed incredibly well in the Super 12s and took first place in Group 1. While there were some incredible batting performances throughout the competition, the BlackCaps captain believes that his bowlers’ consistency was equally important in helping them advance to the semifinals.
“They are, after all, seasoned players for us. They have played for us for a long time, whether it be taking wickets or, in particular, adjusting to the conditions that are necessary for them to attend tournaments and other large events throughout the world; williamson

T20 World Cup 2022: Kane Williamson’ Views On Match Against Pakistan
In this competition, three of New Zealand’s five bowlers have kept an economy rate under seven. Outstanding performers include Tim Southee (6.35), Mitchell Santner (6.43), and Ish Sodhi (6.78). Only Trent Boult (7.18) and Lockie Ferguson (8.13) have been slightly more expensive, but they have also delivered for the Kiwis as they have been key wicket-takers.
Williamson continued by discussing the setting and the circumstances. They have previously played twice in Sydney for this event, but he doesn’t believe that will give them an advantage in the encounter tomorrow.
“The wicket was excellent for the first game we played here, so I think it’s kind of fascinating. When we came back to play here the second time, things had changed. And on occasion, you may assume that the wicket will act in the same manner as it did in the first game despite your expectations, “explained he.
“It’s not entirely clear if that is a benefit or a drawback. Here, both teams have competed. In order to play intelligently and respond to the conditions, we really need to concentrate on our cricket and the strategies we want to want to implement ” He Added.
