Kane Williamson, who was out of the Trent Bridge Test after getting affected by the COVID-19, has watched the Test in his hotel room while being in quarantine. However, others might have gotten frustrated seeing the Test but he chose to be calm. He said, “I don’t shout at the TV, I watch and observe.” However, he has become fully fit and is all set to play again as well.
“It’s always interesting seeing it from a different perspective, although it wasn’t my preferable place to be,” Williamson said before the third and final Test at Headingley. “It was interesting to watch and connect from the other side a little bit. I watched a lot of it, I didn’t have too much else to do.”

“There was a lot of effort that went into the match (at Trent Bridge) and you do have to applaud the quality England have come in with,” he said. “It was a Test where both teams put their front foot forward, played some shots. England are a strong side playing well, so for us it’s about improving as a side… (that’s the) bigger picture. Their style is theirs. It appears to have evolved a little bit. For us it’s focusing on our cricket and finding different areas of the game to target and be aware they are choosing to play a different brand that seems to be suiting them. The focus is us and wanting to be better.”
For Kane Williamson, a hectic schedule and a sore elbow both have kept him out of action in recent times. He missed the entirety of the home Test season last summer as well. However, he has a lot of series coming up and he is expected to do good as well.

“The picture of leadership in this side is something I’m very passionate about. Certainly I love playing for my country and there are a number of leaders in this team that share that passion to take steps forward and become a better side. Our focus is to keep getting better. We are up against a strong English side who are always tough to play against. It’s trying to learn from some of those lessons. We’ve had two really good games, they have had some special performances that have driven them forward,” Kane Williamson concluded.
