General News Williamson hails 'brilliant result against best team in the world'

New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson praised his side for putting up a brilliant display in the two-match Test series against India that saw them whitewash the visitors 2-0. Having already won the first Test comprehensively, New Zealand thumped India in just two-and-a-half days to pick up another resounding win in Christchurch. While claiming that the result doesn't reflect on how competitive the second Test was actually with India taking a slender seven-run lead in the first innings, Williamson was particularly pleased with the performances against a side that is ranked number one in the world.

"I don't think the result reflected how competitive the match was," Williamson said after the match on Monday (March 2). "Perhaps another 50 more runs from the Indians' perspective would have made it quite a balanced-looking match but the surface offered throughout the whole game, so if you were able to put the ball in the right areas for a long period of time, as we saw both teams, you create opportunities and get some reward. I guess you look at the surfaces and they both were perhaps seam-bowler friendly. But as a batting unit as well, the contributions that were made to get us to parity in the first innings of this game and in Wellington to get competitive totals on the board on these surfaces were really pleasing to see.
