World Cup 2019: Marquee batsman and bowler from the 'Big 5' teams
#3 New Zealand
Batsman – Kane Williamson
This shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone. Williamson has been in a scintillating form off late and he happens to be the skipper of the Black Caps.
With the captain expected to lead from the front, the runners-up of World Cup 2015, will be keen on taking a step further in 2019. Williamson's run-scoring ability has improved significantly over the last few months and his consistency is awe-inspiring.
His captaincy will also a valuable skill asset for New Zealand in the tournament.
Bowler – Trent Boult
Trent Boult is one of best seam bowlers in the world at the moment. He is an excellent new-ball bowler, but also a death overs specialist.
He has Tim Southee by his side and is bound to get better by playing alongside him in the months leading up to the World Cup. Boult bowls at a speed in excess of 145 kmph and maintains consistent line and length.
It is safe to say that New Zealand's pace bowling is in reliable hands.
