Social media praises Kane Williamson after heart breaking World Cup defeat
LONDON -With Black Caps captain Kane Williamson averaging more than 80 runs per innings during the Cricket World Cup, it's hard to argue against him being named the Player of the Tournament.
However, upon learning he'd won the award, Williamson's reaction was priceless.
He simply asked: "Me?"
As England celebrated their World Cup victory over the Black Caps, TV coverage showed a brief conversation between an official and Williamson before the award was handed out. While the coverage had no audio of the conversation, the official gave Williamson some instructions and he soon strutted out to collect the award.
