WATCH | Australian fielders produce a brain-fade moment to hand Kane Williamson an escape
Kane Williamson was dismissed on 17 against Australia|
The mistake of handing a lifeline to a quality batter usually turns out costly for many teams and they might lose the game eventually. After posting a huge target to chase for New Zealand, Australia did the same mistake letting Kane Williamson survive a run-out as fielders had a brain-fade moment.
Australia are up against New Zealand in a three-match ODI series and are leading by 1-0. However, in the second game, the tables have turned as New Zealand restricted visitors to a low total of 195/9 in the second game. Trent Boult picked four wickets for New Zealand while Matt Henry scalped three. In response, New Zealand had started on a disappointing note as they were reduced to 33/4 at the time of writing. However, the talking point of the innings was Kane Williamson’s run-out survival in a bizarre way.
Mitchell Starc started the proceedings for Australia and Kane Williamson was facing the last delivery of the over. He blocked a back-off length delivery to the right of the cover fielder but there was a mix-up between both batters. Sean Abbott stopped the ball but threw it wide of the keeper and that allowed Williamson to get back in time.
