New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson turned into Superman for a second to take a jaw-dropping catch in the 1st Test against England at Eden Park, Auckland. Williamson caught Stuart Broad left of gully and to complete a thrilling catch. The Black Caps had wrapped up England for a paltry score of 58 in the first innings of the match as pacers Trent Boult and Tim Southee finished the job in the first 20 overs.
It can easily become the catch of the year as a good length delivery by Southee slicked past Broad's bat outside off and with Williamson to his left, the skipper made an amazing dive to claim a breath-taking catch. England after losing Broad, were 27/9. Take a look.
Surprisingly, even Broad was left stunned as he reacted to Williamson taking a beauty of a catch.
With Boult's 6/32 and Southee's 4/25, the Black Caps stunned the visitors and it took them 93 minutes at Auckland. The total score was the sixth-lowest in England's Test history and their lowest against New Zealand. The first day also saw five ducks as Ben Stokes, Joe Root, Moeen Ali, Jonny Bairstow and Broad took a walk back to the hut early.
Boult and Southee were able to make the pink ball, being used in a Test in New Zealand for the first time, swing in the late afternoon at Eden Park. England's batsmen, lacking Test-match preparation, were unequal to the task of batting against it as Boult and Southee became the first New Zealanders to bowl unchanged through a Test innings.
After suffering a humiliating defeat to Australia in the Ashes series, the longest format of the game has come back to haunt the Joe Root led England and this time it is Australia's neighbours who are causing the mayhem.
England won the five-match ODI series 3-2 against New Zealand and it seems like the hosts have some unfinished business with the Three Lions.
