New Zealand captain Kane Williamson has said that he enjoys a good friendship with Indian skipper Virat Kohli. New Zealand recently defeated Kohli-led team India by eight wickets in the final of the World Test Championship (WTC).
Kohli and Williamson first met in 2008 during the ICC Under-19 World Cup, where India defeated New Zealand by three wickets in the semi-finals. Williamson told India Today, “Kohli and I have known each other for a long time and are very good friends. In such a situation, we have some common interest of our own.

Kohli had also recently said that New Zealand had shown consistency and heart to win the title. After the victory of the Kiwi team, Kohli said, ‘Congratulations to Williamson and his entire team. He showed consistency to win this title and put pressure on us. He deserved to win.
