Watch: Video of Kane Williamson's bizarre dismissal vs Aus in 2nd ODI goes viral on Internet

Without a doubt, New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson is among the top batsmen in world cricket. However, his current form is not as per his standard. New Zealand are in Australia right now for a three-match ODI series. Williamson has got starts in both ODIs but couldn't convert them to a significant score.

Thus, the Black Caps lost both the opening games with one match to go. However, the second ODI was a complete disaster for New Zealand as they got all out for just 82 runs, chasing the target of 196. The skipper himself was unlucky and got out in a rather weird way.

He would undoubtedly be upset with the manner in which he was dismissed against Australia on Thursday, September 8 in Cairns, during the second ODI game.

Williamson was bizarrely dismissed off a full toss ball by Australian leg-spinner Adam Zampa in the 19th over of the game, and the New Zealand captain was dismissed for just 17 runs off 58 balls as his team was crushed by the hosts by 113 runs.

Zampa bowled a full toss, but the New Zealand skipper completely missed it. The ball slipped under his bat and landed him directly on the knee roll, forcing the umpire to rule him out for being LBW.

The video clip of Williamson's bizarre dismissal has now gone viral on social media. The ball tracking confirmed that the ball would have pitched just short of a leg stump and crashed onto the wickets, as seen in Williamson's expression in the clip.


Speaking of the match, batting first, Australia could only manage 195/9 in their 50 overs. Steve Smith was the top-scorer, who made 61 runs. In the end, the Australian lower order added some vital runs. Starc made 38 runs and Hazlewood scored 23 runs.

For New Zealand, Trent Boult picked up four wickets while Matt Henry took three. Chasing the target, New Zealand lost their wickets at regular intervals and got all out for 83 in 33 overs. Adam Zampa registered his maiden five-wicket haul and picked up 5/25. Both teams will play the third and final ODI match on Sunday.
