The New Zealand cricket team skipper Kane Williamson is known for not only his batting prowess but also his captaincy skills and he has once again led his team from the front in the first test match of the 2-match test series against West Indies. New Zealand has won the first test match by an innings and 134 runs and the credit goes to the wonderful batting of the Kiwi skipper who scored a double century.
West Indies won the toss and invited the hosts to bat first; the start of New Zealand was not good as Will Young departed early after scoring only 5 runs. This brought Kane Williamson on the ground and he went on to score 251 runs for which he played 412 balls and his innings included 34 fours and 2 sixes. However, Kane Williamson was lucky enough that Kemar Roach overstepped when the ball touched the outer edge of his bat. With the help of Williamson’s 251, NZ posted a total of 519/7.
Jimmy Neesham, the Kiwi all-rounder who is known for his good sense of humour and wittiness, took a subtle dig at his skipper for his boring face that he had while celebrating his 200 runs. Usually, a batsman is quite excited and happy after scoring a double hundred but Kane Williamson had no such expressions on his face.
Jimmy took to the micro-blogging site Twitter and posted the photo of Kane Williamson with a hilarious caption, “Sorry guys I didn’t really want to do that but it’s my job so I kinda had to.”

As far as the match is concerned, the West Indian batting lineup failed miserably in the first innings as the whole team bundled out for 138 runs and they were forced for follow-on. However in the second innings also, the New Zealand bowlers proved to be too good for the West Indian batsmen as the visitors managed only 247 runs despite a century by Jermaine Blackwood.
Kane Williamson is a graceful person who doesn’t like to express his emotions like other cricketers but he is certainly one of the best players of the present times. Agree?
