Williamson is a role-model for any young cricketer: Yousuf


Former Pakistani cricketer Mohammad Yousuf believes that New Zealand’s skipper Kane Williamson was a fantastic role-model for any young cricketer, saying the right-handed batsman plays the game in the right way. “I always ask the boys to watch Kane Williamson’s batting.
