It’s rare for Indian Cricket fans to cheer a team that beat them in a World Cup. The reason is special. The New Zealand Cricket teams are known as the “nice guys of cricket”.
Due to their fair and positive style of playing they have become the world’s “second favourite team” (after the home team of course).
Leading from the front is the Captain, Kane Williamson who is arguably considered the best Captain in Cricket today:
1. He always has a smile on this face, even in defeat. He has always displayed great Sportsmanship (remember the 2019 World Cup final)
2. His team mates acknowledge him as a very intelligent cricketer (always a couple of overs ahead of the game)
3. As an individual contributor his batting scores have been outstanding(Williamson has the highest test average (65.74) in the last three years (minimum 1000 runs))
4.What he’s done for New Zealand cricket – not just his own performance,– but he’s taken everyone else with him, and their career numbers have improved, their performances have improved.
Sometimes nice guys do finish first…
For me, they always come first!!!
