Kane Williamson was run out for the first time in his 12-year Test cricket career on the second day of the opening Test in the two-match series between Australia and New Zealand at Wellington’s Basin Reserve. This dismissal represented a significant turning point in Williamson’s illustrious career as it was the first time he had been run out for a duck in Test cricket.

Williamson was dismissed after colliding with starter Will Young in the middle of the pitch, which caused confusion and allowed Marnus Labuschagne to make a precise throw.

Australia started the day with a big lead after bowling New Zealand out for 179 runs, giving them a 204-run lead. This came after the visitors amassed a dominant score of 383 because to Cameron Green’s incredible undefeated 174. After a stand of 116 runs with Green, Josh Hazlewood was removed to end Australia’s innings.

Mitchell Starc’s pace proved to be too much for Tom Latham, who was removed early in the New Zealand innings. The troubles of New Zealand were exacerbated when Williamson and Rachin Ravindra were removed for ducks in quick succession.

With Daryl Mitchell and Will Young out of the picture, New Zealand faced more difficulties, though some resistance came from Glenn Phillips (71) and Matt Henry (42). With four wickets, Nathan Lyon stood up as Australia’s best bowler.

With a combination of boundaries and sixes, Cameron Green maintained his brilliant form from the day before, smashing his previous best Test score of 174. Australia’s total was extended thanks in large part to his partnership with Hazlewood, who played a supportive role until he was caught off bowling by Matt Henry, concluding the session.

With five wickets to his credit, Matt Henry led the New Zealand bowling attack. Scott Kuggeleijn and William O’Rourke both claimed two wickets. Green’s knock, which featured five sixes and twenty-three fours, was crucial in establishing a difficult goal for New Zealand and demonstrating his increasing ability in Test cricket.
