Kane Williamson caught a great catch
After scoring 322 runs on the first day in the Test being played in Christchurch, the Sri Lankan team lost the wickets of Dhananjay de Silva and Dickwala at the beginning of the second day. After the wickets of these two, bowler Rajitha tried to handle the innings and scored 22 runs but in the end she also became the victim of Matt Henry.
In fact, Henry, who came to bowl in the 82nd over, first troubled Rajitha and later reduced the pace of the ball. Due to which the ball collided with Rajitha’s bat and went in the air. The ball was falling on the no man’s land when suddenly the captain Kane Williamson came running and slipped on the ground and took a brilliant catch.
