Hoping to be fully fit for the the series-ending third and final Test against India, New Zealand captain Kane Williamson on Friday said that although the conditions have been tough his team should have put up a better show. “I am feeling better now. I am certainly very hopeful of playing on Saturday. I can say I am getting better each day,” said Williamson whose viral infection-induced absence weakened the visitors batting significantly in the second game at Kolkata.
“We should have put up a better performance although we know it s a challenge in India. At the same time we need to play our best cricket. If we can put up our best we can get a result in our favour in this part of the world,” said New Zealand s top batsman who made 75 and 25 in the series opener at Kanpur before missing the second game in Kolkata. Williamson, who is hopeful of able to choose from a full squad for the series finale, felt the team should have crossed the 300 mark in the first innings of both the lost games.
