Cricket with Kane Williamson

Cricket with Kane Williamson: A Guide to Batting, Bowling, Fielding and Captaincy

‘I love batting. Nothing gives me a bigger buzz than taking on the best bowlers in the world. I’m a big believer in the idea that cricket is a team sport but there’s that moment, just as the bowler delivers the ball, when it’s a pure one-on-one contest...’

Why is it important to play the ball late?
How do you play a classic cover drive?
What should you do to deliver a deadly in-swinger?

Black Caps captain Kane Williamson shares these secrets and more as he talks through his approach to all aspects of cricket. And who better to impart this information than the 26-year-old record-setting batsman, who is fast becoming one of New Zealand’s greatest ever cricketers.
In the words of former Black Caps captain Brendon McCullum, who has contributed a Foreword to Kane’s book: ‘Kane is always working hard on his game and looking to improve, so when he talks about best practice for cricketers, it’s worth sitting up and listening.’

Cricket with Kane Williamson is an essential read for any aspiring cricketer — of any age. Kane shares the basics of batting, plus skills and drills for those looking to improve their batting technique. An ardent student of the game, Kane also reflects on his approach to bowling, fielding and captaincy, to help amateur players improve their all-round game.

Written in a highly-engaging style with the help of journalist Dylan Cleaver, Cricket with Kane Williamson provides insights and valuable advice for anyone interested in enhancing their own game, or simply developing a better understanding of how one of the very best players approaches his.
