Kane Williamson Run-Out in Australia Test

On day 02 of the first Trans-Tasman test, New Zealand had a horrible start as they concluded their first innings with a low total and failed to chase Australia’s 383 runs.

During their innings, former New Zealand captain Kane Williamson was shaken after his run-out with a duck, resulting in the top-order collapse.

The incident happened on the last ball of the fifth over. With the dismissal of Latham Kane Williamson came to bat on the fifth ball of their innings.

With a dot ball from Starc, Williamson attempted for a single where he collided with fellow batter Will Young. With the ball in the hand, Labuschagne attempted for a throw and dismissed the player.

Choosing to bowl first, New Zealand’s strategy on attack failed as Australia scored 383 runs. Australia openers Steve Smith and Khawaja had a decent run as they scored 61 runs for the first wicket.

After the dismissal of Labuschagne for one run by Kuggeleijn, Green came to bat at No. 4 in the lineup and arrived at the crease right after the lunch break on Thursday.

Despite Green started scoring runs, top-class batters like Travis Head and Mitchell Marsh were sent out at regular intervals.

Marsh was the other scorer for Australia as he smashed 40 runs on 29 deliveries. But New Zealand bowlers continued to create havoc on Australia’s batting lineup.

With the dismissal of Alex Carey, Starc, Cummins, and Lyon, Hazlewood joined forces with Cameron Green who scored 174* runs for the side in the first innings. Cameron Green and Josh Hazlewood have recorded for scoring 116 runs which is the highest stand for 10th wicket.

With the dismissal of Hazlewood for 22 runs, Australia scored 383 runs. On the other hand, Matt Henry bagged a five-wicket haul while another bowler William Kuddeleijn bagged two wickets each.

On the other hand, the Australian bowlers terrified the New Zealand batting line-up dismissing the top order and few wickets in the middle order. They bagged 5 wickets for 29 runs where Williamson and Rachin Ravindra were sent out on a duck.

Tom Blundell and Glenn Maxwell joined forces to lift the score above a hundred. But soon after the former’s dismissal, New Zealand crumbled as they scored only 179 runs in the 44th over.

Matt Henry who bagged five wickets, has also been impressive with bat scoring 42 runs. Lyon was impressive after dismissing four batters while Hazlewood bagged two wickets.

Australia started the second innings and lost 2 wickets for four runs. They scored 13 runs by the end of the 8th over before the end of day 02 at Basin Reserve, Wellington.
