T20 World Cup: In the T20 World Cup, New Zealand’s team once again missed out on getting close to the title. Despite reaching the knockout rounds of the fifth consecutive limited overs World Cup, his dream of winning his maiden title remained unfulfilled. The Kane Williamson-led team suffered a seven-wicket defeat at the hands of Pakistan in the first semi-final. New Zealand’s team, which was the runners-up of 2021, looked completely on the back foot in the match played in Sydney and failed to compete with Pakistan.

Williamson on target of critics

However, New Zealand had a strong start to the tournament with a one-sided victory in the first match against Australia in Sydney itself. After this, the New Zealand team also became the first team to reach the semi-finals, topping Group 1. But now after another defeat in the knockout, questions are being raised on New Zealand captain Williamson. His form and slow innings have also been the target of critics. But in the meantime, Ken has made a big deal about his future.

Workload management tease

Kane has made his intentions clear after a seven-wicket loss to Pakistan in the semi-finals. “I like to play in all formats. So much cricket is being played, so proper management is also necessary for this.

“We played different finals and did well. We could have won but lost to better teams. After losing one tournament, you focus on the other. That’s what I believe. Our journey has been good. We have played good cricket and have to keep that up.

Another slow innings from Williamson

Talking about the match against Pakistan, New Zealand, batting first, scored 152 runs for the loss of 4 wickets due to the innings of 53 runs by Daryl Mitchell and 46 runs by Williamson. But New Zealand’s bowlers failed to defend the score and Babar Azam and Rizwan of Pakistan chased down the target easily.
