Kane Williamson Stats
Williamson made his international debut in 2010. He continued to score runs in the following years, but not at the high level that he would anticipated. That changed in 2014 when he broke a slew of records during an ODI series against India at home. He became only the second batsman in ODI history (after Yasir Hameed) to score fifty or more in each of the five games.
Kane also became the fourth New Zealand player to score five or more fifty-plus runs in ODIs in a row. He also has the most fifty-plus scores by a New Zealand batsman in a bilateral series with five.

Kane Williamson, regarded as a classic Test batsman, was signed by the Sunrisers Hyderabad for less than $100,000, yet he did not pay off in his first season, especially considering the limited opportunities he got in an unfamiliar lower-middle order position.
Williamson was a member of the team that won their first title under David Warner’s captaincy in 2016, and he was retained for the 2017 season (for $460,500) as the organization showed faith in him and his ability to be the rock in the batting order around which the innings could be built.
However, following the 2018 auction, David Warner was banned from the IPL for the 2018 season and stripped of his captaincy, and the franchise handed Williamson the reins for the season. He also led his team to the final, only to lose to the Chennai Super Kings in the playoffs for the second time. Currently, he is the captain of Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). (TATA IPL 2022).
SRH won 22 out of 46 matches ( 1 tied) under Kane Williamson’s Captaincy.
Kane has captained New Zealand in 78 ODI matches, winning 42 and losing 33 of those. In T20I cricket, he has led New Zealand in 56* matches, winning 28 and losing 25. Williamson has the best record as the captain in test cricket. From the 35 matches that he has captained, the team has won 21 and lost just 8.
In the IPL, Williamson has captained SRH in 32 games, winning 15 and losing 16 and 1 draw. Kane Williamson is one of the most respected Cricketers across the globe. He is highly regarded as one of the best batsmen playing the game of cricket.
