Williamson said in the Star Sports show ‘Cricket Connected’,

“You can say that it was only a matter of time before he was making some strong inroads to the full international scene.

“At the moment, leading the way in cricket and setting the standard as a batter and breaking all these records. A lot of that probably has to come down to his maturity, his ability to make very good decisions,”

Williamson went on to say that

“Not only is he gifted with his ability and his natural ability, but you’re marrying that up with this constant drive and hunger to improve and just be a better day in and day out. Yeah, we are fortunate to play against each other, it’s been great to meet at a young age and follow his progress and journey,”

Kane Williamson and Virat Kohli have been playing against each other since 2008 Under 19 World Cup. Earlier at the start of the year, India toured New Zealand. India won the T20I series by 5-0(5) but Kiwis whitewashed Indian team in ODI (0-3) and Test series (0-2).
