Kane Williamson created a record, New Zealand changed 92 years old history

Kane Williamson New Zealand vs South Africa: Record Today has become a day to be recorded in history for the New Zealand cricket team and their former captain Kane Williamson. New Zealand today defeated South Africa by 7 wickets in the second test match and captured the series. If we talk about Kane Williamson, he has scored another century. Kane’s bat has been doing wonders for the last few matches and centuries are being scored continuously.

New Zealand clean sweeps South Africa

When the South African team reached New Zealand for 2 test matches, most of the players were newly included in the team, because at the time of the first test, South Africa’s own T20 league i.e. SA20 was being played. All the players were busy in this and an army of new players was prepared and sent for the test series. New Zealand took full advantage of this and won the first match by a huge margin of 281 runs. After this came the turn of the second match. This time also New Zealand defeated South Africa by 7 wickets, because the South African team was full of new players.

The pain that has been going on for 92 years is over today

The Test relationship between New Zealand and South Africa is not like that of today. Both the teams have been playing for the last 92 years. But never before had the New Zealand team been successful in winning a Test series from South Africa. This is the first time that New Zealand has won a Test series from South Africa. Not only won, but also completely wiped out South Africa. That means, what could never happen in 92 years, has happened now.

Kane Williamson played an amazing innings, scored another century

Kane Williamson was not the captain of New Zealand in this series. Kane was playing as a batsman under the captaincy of Tim Southee. But as a batsman, Kane Williamson scored a lot of runs and contributed significantly to his team’s victory. With this, he has reached par with Younis Khan of Pakistan in terms of scoring most centuries in the fourth innings of the Test. Younis Khan has also scored 5 centuries in the fourth innings of his Test career.
