Meanwhile, New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson has opened up on his relationship with India counterpart Virat Kohli even as the picture where they both were seen hugging each other is going viral. Williamson has clarified that the relationship between the two is more than just a hug.
“That was a great moment. We knew anytime you play against India, wherever you are, it’s an incredibly tough challenge. They often set the benchmark in our game in all formats. They show that with the depth that they have and their cricket as well,” he told Cricbuzz in an exclusive chat.
“And the friendship with Virat stems back a number of years and a number of sorts of different times. And it was cool. We always know that there’s a bigger picture to it all. It was a really nice moment and our friendship and relationship are deeper than a game of cricket. And we both know that,” he further added.
