‘Kane Mama is back’ – Fans react as Kane Williamson registers twin tons during first Test against South Africa

New Zealand are dominating proceedings currently against South Africa in Mount Maunganui

Kane Williamson

The 33-year-old Kane Williamson, the former captain of New Zealand’s Test team, has been going through a personal purple patch. On Tuesday, February 6, he scored his sixth century in the previous ten innings of cricket.

Williamson smashed his second of the day on day three of the current Test match between New Zealand and South Africa at Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui, after making 118 in the opening innings. Notably, in his storied Test career, this is the first time that Kane Williamson has notched hundreds in both innings.

He is now the fifth batter from New Zealand to score centuries in both innings in a Test match thanks to his achievement. In March 1974, when playing Australia in Christchurch, Glenn Turner became the first Black Caps batsman to reach the momentous milestone with runs of 101 and 110*. Turner’s record was imitated by Geoff Howarth, Andrew Jones, and Peter Fulton in 1978, 1991, and 2013, respectively.

In addition to the thirteen hundreds he has previously hit in the ODI circuit, Williamson’s century in the second innings marks his thirty-first in the red-ball format. The right-handed batsman has now tied Steve Smith, who has 44 international tons for Australia. The Australian batter has notched up 32 tons in Test matches and 12 in One-Day Internationals.

New Zealand dominate South Africa’s B-team!

New Zealand has caused South Africa more suffering in addition to runs. There are two full days of cricket left, and they hold a 528-run advantage. In the second innings, Kane Williamson picked up where he left off, batting well to record his 31st Test century. A slowish wicket caused problems for the other batters. But NZ scored at nearly four runs per over, with the runs coming from one end. 

With only four wickets to provide evidence for what they had accomplished, the South African bowlers looked fatigued. They ought to continue bowling for an additional hour tomorrow, at most. It will be fascinating to observe whether an overnight declaration comes through since the hosts hold a 528-run lead.
