What Virat Kohli is to India; Kane Williamson is to New Zealand. The best batsmen for their respective sides and hence the key wickets. The Kiwi skipper had to miss a couple of ODIs due to a shoulder injury but looked in great touch when he came back for the final match.

India’s overseas success in recent times have revolved around their seamers’ performance and at the forefront is the inclusion of Jasprit Bumrah in this format. The right-arm pacer, who was once known to be good only in limited overs cricket has now excelled with the red ball and has taken Test cricket like fish to water.

However, the way Kane Williamson handled Bumrah in the T20Is showed his class and there were signs too that batsmen around the world are getting used to his peculiar bowling action.

It would be an interesting battle between Kane Williamson and Jasprit Bumrah and the one who comes out on top will ensure that the result would go in their team's favour.
