BJ Watling; the silent guardian of New Zealand
New Zealand vs Sri Lanka

BJ Watling; the silent guardian of New Zealand

The Kiwis are on the tour of Sri Lanka currently and they have squared the Test series after a dramatic comeback in the 2nd Test.

One of the main architects of victory for New Zealand was their wicket-keeper batsman BJ Watling who scored a magnificent ton to give New Zealand a healthy lead in the first innings.

BJ Watling is one of the most underrated players in world cricket as he only plays for the Kiwis in the longer format. The wicket-keeper batsman has two hundreds and two half-centuries away from home and that too in a winning cause.

Watling remained unbeaten on 105* off 226 balls with 9 boundaries to his name. Colin de Grandhomme also scored a fascinating innings of 83 off 77 with 5 sixes and 5 fours.
