New Zealand cricket team skipper Kane Williamson is enjoying his self-isolation period with his pet dog Sandy.
COVID-19 has gripped the entire world. It has claimed over 20,000 lives and over 4 lakh cases have been reported around the world. It is a difficult time for all people.
Due to the coronavirus outbreak, all the sporting events and tournaments have either been canceled or suspended for an indefinite time. As a result, many cricketers have returned home and are enjoying this free time with their families.
Kane Williamson is also making most of his time by playing cricket with his pet dog. Kane is an exceptional batsman and fielder and there is no doubt in that. But looks like his dog is also a decent fielder.
On Thursday (March 26) Kane shared a slow-motion video on his Instagram account in which he can be seen playing with Sandy (his pet dog). In the clip, Kane is giving Sandy some slip catching practice. The dog didn’t disappoint him and makes no mistake in catching the ball thrown by his master.
He uploaded the adorable video with the caption, “Sandy in the slips! Any other dogs out there joining Sandy? #caninecordon #daytwoisolation.”
A few days ago, Williamson wrote an open letter in the ‘New Zealand Herald’ addressing the medical staff and health officials.
The 29-year-old said, “Events of the past few days have made it clear we’re living through a health crisis the likes of which we’ve never seen. There will no doubt be times in the coming days when the scale of what we’re facing will seem overwhelming,” he wrote.
He further said, “We’re so grateful you have our backs. People talk about the pressure sportsmen and women are under to perform, but the truth is we get to do something we love every day for a living.“
The New Zealand cricket team last played against Australia at the Sydney Cricket Ground in front of empty stands on March 13. Though the rest of the series was called off due to coronavirus scare.
