Share post:


Mount Maunganui, Feb 6: Kane Williamson slammed a second ton in the first Test against South Africa to take New Zealand a step closer to victory on Day 3 at the Bay Oval.
Williamson once again turned up with the bat, slammed 109 and once again exercised dominance of experience over raw talent. In comparison to the first innings, Williamson took a brisk approach and raised his bat for his 31st Test ton in 125 deliveries. When other batters struggled on a sluggish surface, Williamson armed with technique and experience ensured that New Zealand scored at a healthy run rate of 4.With each run, New Zealand piled runs on the board and agony on the inexperienced South African team as well. The veteran batter played with more freedom and picked up gaps more easily in comparison to his knock in the first innings. (Agencies)
