The Kiwi team won the first Test between New Zealand and Sri Lanka. The hero of this victory was former New Zealand captain Kane Williamson, who guided New Zealand to victory in the last over. But the thrill and excitement of the last time was different. A test match did not appear to be taking place. There was T20-like excitement and a tough fight in the last over. The video is also going viral on social media.
Asitha Fernando comes in to bowl the last over from Sri Lanka. The Kiwi scored 3 runs off his first two balls. After this, Matt Henry was run out on the third ball. Now we needed 5 runs off the next 3 balls with two wickets remaining. The match could have gone either way. But, as long as Kane Williamson was there, the New Zealand team prevailed. He made it easy for the team by hitting a boundary off the fourth ball. Again, these four created tension on Sri Lanka. But the bowler Fernando kept calm.
Kiwis needed 1 run off the last 2 balls. But Fernando dot the 5th ball. As a result, the excitement of the match increased once again. Now 1 ball and 1 run. Williamson played leg bye on the last ball which flagged the win for the team.
