New Delhi: New Zealand’s cricket team’s former skipper Kane Willison is considered one of the most humble & grounded men in the cricketing world.
Popularly known as ‘Kane Mama’ in the subcontinent, the ace batsman enjoys a massive fan following in several cricketing nations around the world with fans hailing him not only for his batting mastery but also for his calm & down-to-earth nature.
However, even the calmest guy has a breaking point getting pushed beyond which can turn him into an angry young man. This recently circulating viral video of the Kiwi cricketer is a perfect example of the same.

The viral video opens with Williamson religiously engaged in doing stretches during the practice session ahead of the beginning of Day 3’s play of the ongoing 1st Test match between New Zealand and South Africa in Mount Maunganui.
However, the cricketer’s peaceful stretching session soon gets interrupted when a ball comes cruising towards him & hits him on the leg. This leaves Kane frustrated who then takes out his anger on the fielder who mistakenly threw the ball at him by giving him a middle finger.
With the video featuring Kane’s rare moment of anger doing rounds on the internet, netizens are now taking to the comment section & sharing their mixed reactions on the same. While some are cracking jokes & finding the batting maestro’s anger hilarious, others are simply shocked to see one of the most composed cricketers losing his calm on such a pitiful thing.
