Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) batsman Kane Williamson played a wonderful knock of 66* runs in 51 deliveries against Delhi Capitals (DC) during match 20 of IPL 2021. However, he could not clinch the game for his side as it ended in a tie and DC won the clash in the Super Over.
Former India cricketer Ajay Jadeja leapt praises for the Kiwi batsman after the match. He hailed Williamson’s quality of remaining calm during pressure situations. Jadeja mentioned that the 30-year old always gives his 100 per cent on the field and the fans get a good feeling while watching him bat.
“You always get a good feeling after watching Kane Williamson. He keeps calm and no matter what the situation is, he gives his hundred per cent efforts. He kept going on till the end against Delhi Capitals. Prior to the last four overs, I didn’t feel SRH could take the game till the end but Williamson didn’t lose the nerve.
“SRH needed 5 off four balls after that six in the last over. There were a couple of dot balls and the game should have gone in SRH’s favour. But whenever you look at him [Williamson], you won’t feel that whatever was required to be done for the game, was not done. He keeps the basics right,” Jadeja told Cricbuzz.
‘Williamson maintains his consistency’: Jadeja
The former cricketer said the SRH batsman isn’t bothered by the situation of the wicket and keeps on doing the basics while maintaining his consistency.
“Unlike other big names in the side, Williamson is a player who isn’t bothered by the situation of the wicket or the kind of bowler he is facing. He keeps on doing the basics and maintains his consistency,” he added.
