Kane Williamson: The captain of the home team put on display an exceptional fielding effort to dismiss the visiting all-rounder.

During the fourth T20I of the ongoing Australia’s tour of New Zealand in Wellington, New Zealand captain Kane Williamson put on display an exceptional fielding effort to dismiss Australia all-rounder Marcus Stoinis.

It all happened on the last delivery of the 13th over when Stoinis failed to clear Williamson at cover. Facing an Ish Sodhi delivery which was turning away from him, Stoinis aimed at hitting it over Williamson but it wasn’t to be as the captain of the home team timed his dive to perfection to complete a catch.

Coming in to bat at No. 5 in the 10th over, Stoinis returned to the dressing room after scoring 19 (13) with the help of two fours and a six. The right-hand batsman was one of the Australian batsmen who couldn’t convert their start into a significant total.

After Australia captain Aaron Finch won the toss and chose to bat, he would’ve expected his batsmen to do much better at the Westpac Stadium today.

Leading from the front in a must-win match, Finch top-scored for the visitors with his 79* (55) comprising of five fours and four sixes. In what was Finch’s 14th T20I half-century, he has now surpassed David Warner (2,265) to become Australia’s highest run-scorer in T20Is.
