Williamson looks to SA Tests for a crucial WTC advantage. The Two-match Test series will commence from February 04.

[ TAURANGA ] : New Zealand skipper Kate Williamson has declared himself fit for the upcoming Test series against South Africa that will be a part of the World Test Championship.

Presently at the Third spot  in the WTC 25 points table, the Black Caps can gain significantly if they manage to do well against South Africa.

Despite the relative inexperience of the  South African squad, which features seven uncapped players,  Williamson believes that it would be a strong contest.

'' We are under no illusions that it is going to be a tough contest for sure.  They are all very good players and we just want to keep brining the focus back to our cricket.''

Williamson added that New Zealand, who have never won a Test series against South Africa, will focus on playing their brand of cricket to gain crucial WTC points.

'' Any win anywhere is crucial. That's why it is difficult to micro-manage a Test championship campaign.

''It's such a long period of time, and the games can come a bit sporadically with the Test cricket. So it's trying to just connect together as a group, and focus on the cricket that we want to play.

That gives us the best chance [to win] and try and do that for long periods of time. That's the focus going into the series.''
