Fantastic challenge to play against India: Williamson

London, May 18 (PTI): New Zealand captain Kane Williamson is excited to face India in the World Test Championships (WTC) final next month as he considers showdowns against Virat Kohli’s men to be a “fantastic challenge”.
India and New Zealand square-off in the final of the inaugural World Test Championships in Southampton from June 18.
“When we play against India, it has always been a fantastic challenge and so it is really exciting to be playing against them,” Williamson said in a video posted by the ICC on its Twitter handle.
“It’s really, really exciting to be involved in the final, obviously to win it would be that much better,” said the 30-year-old considered one of the best current batsmen in the world. Talking about championship and how it progressed, Willimson said, “We saw the contests in the WTC has brought real excitement. “… the games were really tight such as in the India-Australia series and our series against Pakistan as well where you had to really fight hard to get the results, which is really great.” New Zealand pacer Neil Wagner admitted India possess fast bowlers who can exploit the English conditions but said the wickets can change anytime and become flat also. “India has a lot of quality fast bowlers who have done well in different conditions, they can swing (the ball) under overcast conditions but when the sun comes out it (wicket ) is flat and nothing happens. “(English) Conditions can change throughout and so I am not getting carried away too much, trying to control the controllables.”
