Just like all other sportspersons in the world, New Zealand cricket team captain Kane Williamson is currently enjoying an unforeseen break from the game in the wake of Covid-19, which has taken more than 27,000 lives and infected over 607,000 globally as of March 28 afternoon.
Williamson returned to New Zealand earlier this month after the three-match ODI series in Australia got called off due to coronavirus threat. Since then, he has been in quarantine and waiting for things to get back to normal.
For now, however, the Black Caps skipper seems to have found an innovative way to stay connected with the sport.
On Friday (March 27), Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) shared a hilarious video on Twitter in which their key member of the team, Kane Williamson, can be seen giving his dog a slip catch. Funnily, his pet Sandy ended up gobbling up the ball.
OUT! Gobbled up at slips 🙌

Recently, Williamson hailed his country’s doctors and healthcare workers who are fighting against the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Events of the past few days have made it clear we’re living through a health crisis the likes of which we’ve never seen. There will no doubt be times in the coming days when the scale of what we’re facing will seem overwhelming,” Kane wrote in his column for New Zealand Herald.
“We’re so grateful you have our backs. People talk about the pressure sportsmen and women are under to perform, but the truth is we get to do something we love every day for a living. We play games,” the Kiwi talisman added.
