[tps_title]Kane Williamson ( NZ )[/tps_title]
The talented Kiwi opener was at the helm for this series. Playing with the added pressure of captaincy on him, he was excellent and gave his team important starts. Though he didn’t have a good start to the series, scoring just 10 in the 1st ODI, he took his team to victory in the second matchm scoring 70 while chasing a target of 252.
What pleased the eye was the manner in which he handled the Pakistani spinners. His best performance came in the 4th ODI, when he scored 123 runs off just 105 balls to lift the New Zealand score to 299. It was a mixed package of elegant drives and forceful shots. He backed it up with a 97 in the last ODI, which helped his team win the match and the series. Williamson was rightly given the Man of the Series award for his tally of 346 runs.
