2. Kane Williamson
Kane Williamson has been the backbone of the New Zealand batting line up so far. He scored 481 runs from 8 matches (7 innings) with 2 centuries and 1 half-century, that included his career best score of 148 against West Indies.
With Kiwi openers being inconsistent, the team heavily depends upon on the skipper. Against a top quality Indian bowling line up, it will be interesting how the New Zealand captain goes about his business.
