Umesh Yadav has picked Kane Williamson as the key wicket in the final of the ICC World Test Championship (WTC). The world’s top-two teams are gearing up for the summit clash that will be played between June 18 and 22 in Southampton.
Umesh on Williamson:
“We do have a fair idea about Kane’s game. I don’t think he has too many weaknesses. Of course, any quality batsman can fall to a good delivery. So as a fast bowler, you should look to stick to your strong points. You have to bowl more of those balls which can fetch you wickets.” Umesh told.
Umesh expecting a tough contest:
Umesh admits that New Zealand is a well-balanced team. He expects a tough contest. “New Zealand is a strong side. They bat deep and their pacers are quite experienced and lethal. So it will be a tough game.” he said.
The English conditions are another challenge. The team that is disciplined in each session will be the one that will emerge victoriously. “English conditions are also a big challenge for us. So is playing against a team like New Zealand is challenging,” Umesh said.
“But being Test players, we need to play with discipline and make sure we remain disciplined right throughout in all aspects of the game. The team that maintains such discipline in each and every session will prevail,” he added.
