Kane Williamson has stepped down as captain of New Zealand's white-ball teams 

Following the Black Caps' early elimination from the T20 World Cup, Kane Williamson has resigned as captain of New Zealand's white-ball teams and chosen not to sign a national contract for the 2024–2025 season. With Williamson's decision, a chapter in New Zealand cricket history has ended. The squad qualified for the final of the 2021 T20 World Cup and the semifinals of the previous three tournaments, but eventually lost out on a first-ever white-ball championship. 

Following the team's inability to advance to the Super Eight stage of the current competition, fast bowler Lockie Ferguson also stated on Wednesday that he will not accept a national contract, according to New Zealand Cricket (NZC). Williamson, one of the best batters in the world who has played more than 350 international matches in Test, One-Day, and T20 cricket, will still represent New Zealand in all three competitions.
