Mumbai: After fabulous dominance in ODI series against India New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson said that confidence had been boosted and they will now shift focus towards the Test matches against India.
Williamson said at the post-match press conference, “It is a different format but there are some parts that I guess guys will get confidence from, going into that series. So, the focus does change and the guys are looking forward to that.”
New Zealand beat India by five wickets in the third ODI to wash away the series win over the visitors.
Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah was not as effective for the team as he failed to take a single wicket in the ODI series. Despite Bumrah failing to impress in the series, Williamson called the fast bowler a ‘world-class’ bowler.
Williamson said, “We know that Bumrah is a world-class bowler in all formats. He obviously makes a comeback in cricket after some time but from what I saw he is bowling really well.”
The two-match Test series will begin on February 21.
