Kane Williamson was run out following a disastrous mix-up and collision with his batting partner, Will Young, on Day 2 of the Wellington Test against Australia. 

The great New Zealand batter, whose wicket had attained huge weight for the BlackCaps following the early loss of Tom Latham in the first innings, was out in the most unwanted fashion after misjudging a quick single. 

Facing left-arm pacer Mitchell Starc, Williamson tapped his full-pitcher towards the mid-off and asked Young to come in for a sharp single. However, the ace right-hander collided with his partner and saw close-in fielder Marnus Labuschagne pull off a direct hit at the bowler's end.  

Williamson Run Out Following A Bad Collision 

Once he jammed into the non-striker, Williamson's only hope to reach the other end was an incorrect throw from Labuschagne, who instead superbly collected the ball, got up and perfected his aim at the three sticks, giving Australia another prized scalp. 

Williamson would've been livid with himself as he first overestimated the run possibility and then collided with his batting partner when New Zealand desperately needed their solid and in-form No.3 batter to produce a substantial score in response to the visitors' daunting 383 all out. 

Williamson had made three exceptional centuries during the two-match Test series against South Africa earlier in the home summer and was a key wicket for the Australians to take if they were to achieve a great stranglehold on the proceedings at the Basin Reserve. 

As it happened, they didn't have to break much sweat to get rid of the danger man, who was out run-out without opening his account, allowing Australia to further pile on the pressure on the Kiwi batting unit and going a long way towards securing a significant lead.
