Really excited to play formidable Pakistan in Pakistan: Williamson

Williamson also credited Pakistan to being formidable across all formats

Later this year, from December 23 to January 15, New Zealand will travel to Pakistan for a two-match Test series followed by a three-match ODI series in Karachi and Multan. Post that, the BlackCaps will yet again return to the Asian country for a full-fledged white-ball series, with five ODIs and as many T20Is in three cities – Karachi, Lahore and Rawalpindi.

New Zealand’s skipper Kane Williamson, called it a ‘really exciting time’ to play cricket in Pakistan, and insisted that the team is looking forward to the experience. 

"It's really exciting playing cricket back in Pakistan. Such a rich cricketing history, so many incredible matches that have been played here and we are really looking forward to that experience," Williamson told Pakistan Cricket, on a video that they posted. 

"Pakistan is a team that is formidable in all formats, so we know it’s a tough task, but it's a challenge we look forward to," he stated.

Only last month, Pakistan hosted England for a seven-match T20I series, in two cities – Lahore and Karachi, at the National Stadium and Gaddafi Stadium. Williamson also credited his counterpart, Babar Azam and insisted that he is on top of the world at the moment. 

"As a team they are always well-balanced. They have produced a lot of fast bowlers and have the batting to go with it all. Their captain Babar Azam is the top in the world," Williamson added.
