India own a superb 10-1 record in T20Is this year, but it will amount to little if those wins aren’t translated into success at the first World Twenty20 played at home.
Kane Williamson said:”Every game of cricket is different. It is pretty much a clean slate, it is the start of a tournament and it’s important for us to be focused on our plans and to execute them as best as we can. We certainly know that India are a very strong side in this competition and we have to be at our best.”
New Zealand are a team that has captured attention wherever they’ve gone in the last few years. With Kane Williamson in charge and opening the batting, there is a massive void to fill with McCullum retired.
