What kind of review did New Zealand take? (PC-AFP)
In the 41st match of the World Cup 2023, New Zealand bowled brilliantly against Sri Lanka. Kiwi bowlers bowled out Sri Lanka for just 171 runs at Chinnaswamy Stadium. However, during this sharp bowling of New Zealand, something happened which surprised the world. Kiwi players did something on the field that their captain Kane Williamson had to run away hiding his face. Hey don’t be surprised, the matter here is not serious but funny.
In fact, New Zealand players took such a review against Sri Lanka that the world was stunned. Captain Kane Williamson was seen running away hiding his face. The incident happened in the 24th over when an LBW appeal was made against Chameera off Ferguson’s ball and Darrell Mitchell, Glenn Phillips asked the New Zealand captain to take a review.
Williamson was shocked
Williamson took the review after listening to the players. But when the truth came out, everyone was shocked. The ball was hit by Chameera’s bat. The ball hit Chameera’s pads with a very thick edge of the bat. When New Zealand players saw this picture on the big screen, Captain Williamson went away hiding his face. Darrell Mitchell-Glenn Phillips also laughed and ran away from the other players.
New Zealand made a mistake only in this review in this match. Apart from this, its bowlers did not even allow Sri Lanka to breathe. The Sri Lankan team collapsed for 171 runs. Kusal Perera played an inning of 51 runs. After his dismissal, Sri Lanka lost 8 wickets for 113 runs. However, in the end, Teekshana scored 38 runs and Madhushanka scored 19 runs and somehow kept Sri Lanka on the field for 46.5 overs. Trent Boult bowled best for New Zealand and took 3 wickets. Apart from them, Santner, Ferguson and Rachin Ravindra took 2-2 wickets.
