New Zealand Team Rising Star Batsman Kane Williamson will captain for the Black caps for ICC World T20 2016 to be played in India from the 8th March. Williamson will replace the Brendon McCullum Who announced retirement from international cricket after this summer match against Australia.
For T20 World Cup 25 Years old And Current ICC World No. 1 Test Batsman Kan Williamson will take the captaincy for New Zealand National cricket team.
Announcing his decision on Tuesday, McCullum said: “Ideally, I would have preferred to wait until after the ANZ Test in Christchurch to make this news public.
“However, the schedule for naming the ICC World T20 squads means I could not have managed this without causing a lot of confusion and speculation – something I was keen to avoid.
“I’ve loved my opportunity to play for, and captain the BLACKCAPS, but all good things have to come to an end, and I’m just grateful for the wonderful experience of playing for my country,” the captain who led New Zealand to World Cup 2015 final added.
“There’s a time and place for reflection and that’s at the end of your career,” he said.
“For now, I’ll be giving all my attention to helping the team focus on what’s coming up over the next few weeks – and making sure we’re in the best possible shape for what’s going to be a very challenging summer.”
McCullum are on the road to complete the 100 Streight Test since making debut in the New Zealand side so they became the First Players in History who plays Streight 100 Matches in a row and another record they are inching a just One Six away to over take the Australian Adam Gilchrist as a Player to hit the Maximum Number of Sixes.
In absence of McCullum, responsibility of Captaincy should be given to Kane Williamson who are currently going in the price form and let’s see how they perform under the pressure of Captaincy in the T20 World cup 2016.
