New Zealand captain Kane Williamson appeared on the field with three caps on during the first T20I match against Australia at the Hagley Oval. The gif of Williamson wearing three caps got some interesting reactions from the fans on social media.
Players and umpires have to maintain social distancing on the field, following ICC's protocols amid the pandemic. Players can't hand over their sunglasses, towel, or even cap to the umpire. That's why we often see a player on the field wearing multiple caps since cricket resumed in the COVID-19 pandemic.
Williamson was spotted with three caps and the Twitterati reacted to the gif shared by New Zealand cricket's official Twitter account. A fan wrote the Kiwi captain is justifying their name 'Black Caps', while another one wrote "triple threat".
Talking about the match, New Zealand secured the first of five-match T20I series with a convincing margin of 53 runs. They had scored 184/5 batting first and bowled out Australia on 131 runs.
Devon Conway scored 99* runs off 59 deliveries which turned out to be the difference between the two sides. Australia had no one to hold the innings from one end and score runs to stay alive in the chase.
