3. Kane Williamson (New Zealand):
Talent and technique are not enough to succeed in international cricket until a batsman possess the temperament to back up his game when the going gets tough. And when we talk about temperament, it becomes inevitable to take the name of the Kiwi genius, Kane Williamson. Nowadays whatever may be the format, when this lad comes to the crease, we are almost certain that he will rescue his side from early let-downs and put them on to the path of ascendency. This year, Williamson has scored 1,317 runs in 25 innings at an average of 57 and strike-rate of 90. Interestingly, in 2015, the classical batter has got out in nervous nineties on 5 occasions. The right-hander has recorded 3 centuries and 8 half-centuries.
