Williamson wins NZ player of the year. This great and outstanding Right-handed batsman and all-format captain bags award for the fourth time on the trot.

New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson was the recipient of the Sir Richard Hadlee medal as a player of the year for the fourth-time in six years at the country's 2020-21 cricket awards last Tuesday.

Williamson, the number one Test batsman, also bagged the international Test Player of the Year award as he led from the front with New Zealand winning 17 of 20 matches across all formats played over their summer, winning all seven series.

The 30-year-old plundered Test runs which included double centuries against Pakistan and the West Indies in bowler-friendly conditions.

Her heroics helped New Zealand qualify for the World test championship final where they will take on number one ranked India in June in Southampton.

''Going into the Test summer, there was that Championship final carrot and there was a real drive there for the guys,'' Williamson told fast bowling great Hadlee over the phone.

''To spend some time at the crease personally and make contributions towards that ....... certainly proud as a leader and a player in this side that we were able to achieve some of those things and we're looking forward to that final.'' [Reuters]
