As Williamson was battling against the English bowlers, there was Jofra Archer who was troubling him with bouncers. One of the bouncers was really vicious. Williamson ducked under it and the ball went just millimeters away from the helmet grill. Archer’s IPL team Rajasthan Royals (RR) took the opportunity and posted the photo of the moment on Twitter.

They captioned it, “Too close for comfort, Kane?

Williamson's team Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) replied to the tweet with a football reference. They wrote, “Bend it like Beckham Kane”.

IPL fans will hope these two teams also battle it out at the IPL Auction on 19 December 2019 in Kolkata.
