New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson has said that it would be “quite cool” to walk out for toss alongside India captain Virat Kohli in the upcoming final of inaugural World Test Championship (WTC), starting on June 18.
Kohli and Williamson share a good camaraderie off the field and have often seen showering praise on each other. Both of them are now looking to win the elusive trophy of WTC in Southampton.
Ahead of the much-awaited finale at the Ageas Bowl, the 30-year-old said, “Over the years, we have played against each other at different levels and have known each other fairly well. So, it will be quite cool walking out there, doing the toss and having a bit of contact in the first Test Championship Final.”
Furthermore, the Kiwi captain admitted that his side is well aware of India’s bowling depth and their excellent performance in the 2020-21 Border-Gavaskar Trophy in Australia.
“They have got a fantastic bowling attack. Throughout we have seen the depth they have as well, certainly saw that in Australia as well,” Williamson said on icc.com.
Kane also highlighted that left-arm pacer Neil Wagner will play an important role against Team India in the forthcoming clash.
Notably, the Kiwis are currently playing in the two-match Test series against the Joe Root-led side.
