Captain fantastic Kane Williamson showed his class with a brilliant innings of 85. His reigning World Test Championship champions have flown largely under the radar throughout the tournament, but they've all the ingredients to go all the way, Trent Boult and Tim Southee continually proving to be two of the most potent bowlers in the game.
