Williamson said Williamson led the team brilliantly for a long time and it was a good opportunity for us to learn from him. When Brandon left the team, we had dual challenges at the time. You are playing as a player and a captain without them. One challenge was that we wanted to keep moving forward as a team. During the conversation, Tamim asked Williamson that he had heard that McCallum looked at the 50-over match as 40 overs, was it true.

Williamson said that sometimes he (McCallum) saw Test cricket as a one-day match and sometimes a one-day match as a T20 match. He said that Brendan played his natural game and it brought us a lot of success. Brendan was gifted his attitude towards the game. This actually earned the team widespread acclaim.
