World test championship final: Kane Williamson and Virat Kohli will be seen in action in the world test championship final in England. World Test Championship (WTC) final will start in Southampton on June 18.
Before starting the World test championship final, Former England batsman Michael Vaughan gave a debatable statement that New Zealand captain Kane Williamson is as good as Team India Captain Virat Kohli across all formats. He also claimed that Kane Williamson is not so famous as Virat Kohli because he doesn’t have so much fan following like Virat Kohli.
Virat Kohli, Kane Williamson, Joe Root, and Steve Smith are recognized as the fab four of international cricket according to experts.
Michael Vaughan on Kohli vs Williamson debate:
Talking with Sparksport, Michael Vaughan said,
“If Kane Williamson was Indian, he would be the greatest player in the world. But he’s not because you’re not allowed to say that Virat Kohli is not the greatest, because you’d get an absolute pelting on social media.”
” So, you all say Virat is the best purely to get a few more clicks and likes, few more numbers following here. Kane Williamson, across formats, is equally the best. I think the way he plays, the calm demeanor, his humbleness, the fact that he is silent about what he does.” He added.
Talking about Kane Williamson vs Virat Kohli debate, Michael Vaughan said,
“Kane Williamson has mostly had success. I’m not just saying it because I’m speaking to you guys in New Zealand but I think Kane Williamson is right up there with the great players across the three formats and certainly matches Virat Kohli.
“It’s just that he doesn’t have the 100 million followers on Instagram and doesn’t earn the $30-40 million or whatever Virat gets every year for his commercial endorsements.” He stated.

Kane Williamson may score more runs than Virat Kohli this summer: Vaughan
According to Michael Vaughan, Virat Kohli has not been good in tests in English conditions keeping aside the 2018 tour. Michael Vaughan said,
“I think recently, a lot of pundits have been shouting for him (Kohli), whether he likes that or not, I’m not too sure. In English conditions, against the moving ball, Virat did enjoy success the last time he came in, but other than that he has struggled.”
Praising Kane Williamson’s work and ethics, He said, “In terms of quality and what he brings on the pitch and his consistency, I wouldn’t back against Kane Williamson getting more runs. I think Kane may score a few more runs than Virat this summer.”
While the two batsmen didn’t respond to his comment. But Wasim Jaffer reacted to it. and came up with a hilarious response. “Extra ungli Hrithik ke paas hai par karta Michael Vaughan hai,” he wrote on Twitter.
