Kane Williamson Kane Williamson Height: 1.73 meters DOB: August 8, 1990

Kane Williamson rose to fame with his talent since his U-19 days and currently is one of New Zealand's finest batsmen, apart from being their leader. Coming from a sporting background- his father had played cricket in certain age groups, his mother was a basketball player and his sisters excelling in volleyball. Williamson burst onto the scene in 2010 when he played his first international Test match against India, scoring a ton on his debut. He also made his ODI debut in the same tour of India in August. He's broken a heap of national records and now is the leading centurion in New Zealand Test cricket with his 18 tons. He's also the fifth highest scorer in red ball cricket for the Kiwis and has crossed the 5K mark. He's always been a joy to watch as his classy play made him adapt easily in all three formats. In 2018, Williamson was handed the skipper role of Indian Premier League franchise Sunrisers Hyderabad and led them to the finals. He also finished as the highest run scorer in the 11th edition. As being captain of New Zealand, Williamson has portrayed responsibility in his batting and as a leader.
