During the tour, Kohli and Williamson both didn't play in the fifth T20I between the two teams, a video of them chatting on the boundary line went viral and fans loved it.
When asked about the discussion the two skippers had, in the post-match presentation of 5th T20I, Kohli said: "Kane and me have similar mindsets, similar philosophies. It is amazing that despite being from different parts of the world, we have similar thinking and we speak the same language. Despite what the scoreline suggests, I feel that New Zealand cricket is in the best hands and he is the right guy to lead this team. He is the perfect, perfect man to lead them. I wish him the best of luck and power to lead this side in the future. They are a side everyone loves to watch and play against."
