Kohli and Williamson Revive Their Rivalry

The two team captains renew their rivalry heading into the semi-final.

India Captain Virat Kohli may have gotten Kane Williamson’s wicket when they were teenagers, but he has no plans to do it again in Tuesday’s World Cup semi-final. The two first met each other when they captained their respective nations back in 2008 during the Under-19 World Cup semi-final. India won that match and went on to defeat South Africa in the finals.

“When we meet tomorrow, I’ll remind him… I’m sure he remembers. It’s quite a nice thing to realize that 11 years after captaining our respective nations, we’ll do so again in a senior World Cup from the Under-19s… It’s a really nice memory and we’ll both feel good about knowing this is happening. Neither me or him could have anticipated that one day, this will happen but it’s a really nice thing.”

Williamson’s importance to the New Zealand team was realized when during the last four games, his 481 runs made up for 29% of the Kiwi’s total during this World Cup. “We always knew he had the special ability to go all the way and now he’s controlling the tempo for New Zealand,” said Kohli. “From our team perspective, getting both of them early will be a important because we know how strong he and Ross Taylor can be in a partnership.”

New Zealand has odds of 3.50 while India has odds of 1.33. To find out more about sports betting odds, read Betwala’s article.
