But, the Kiwi duo bumped into each other in the middle of the pitch. Moreover, Williamson bumped into Starc and dropped his bat while Marnus Labuschagne targeted the stumps at the non-striker's end. That's how Williamson lost his wicket on a duck. Williamson is one of the fittest and the best player in the World. He's a great batter in Test cricket and his run out has shocked the entire cricket fraternity. 

Talking about his performance on the home soils, he has been commendable. He has scored six centuries in just one year and also has scored 133*, 43, 109, 118, 215, 121*, 1, 132 and 4, averaging 125.14 during that period. His stats prove that he is undoubtedly one of the best Test players in the World.

Together with Josh Hazelwood, Green put up a last-wicket partnership of 116 runs. Even though the pitch seemed tricky, the New Zealand batters were expected to put up a great score considering the home advantage. However, they failed massively. The Kiwis were bowled out for 179 runs courtesy of Nathon Lyon's four wickets. Since the match has had so many turning points, the last three days will be intriguing to watch.
