New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson put up a short display of resistance alongside senior batsman Ross Taylor against the rampaging Australian quicks on the second day of the pink-ball Test in Perth.
Before Williamson dug his feet in at the crease, he was involved in an incident where he apparently edged the ball behind to the wicketkeeper but chose not to walk while the Aussies did not review the not-out decision.
Interestingly, Williamson’s actions drew the attention of England bowler Stuart Broad, who mockingly questioned why the Kiwi player did not walk back to the pavilion.
Broad’s comments come as an indirect reply to the heated backlash he faced for not walking after clearly edging the ball to slips during the 2013 Ashes.
The left-handed batsman had stood his ground despite the obvious deflection off the bat since the umpire gave it not out. Broad was then treated to an intensely hostile reception when he toured Australia the next year.
