Sri Lanka fans throw birthday party for Williamson in stadium

COLOMBO: Kane Williamson’s stature as one of the most loved cricketers around was evident again when a group of Sri Lankan fans arranged a special treat on the sidelines of a warm-up match to celebrate the New Zealand captain’s birthday.

A small group of fans turned up at the FTZ Sports Complex with a cake for Williamson who spent most of his 29th birthday watching his team toil in the field in less than ideal conditions in Katunayake.

During a drinks break, the visiting captain jogged over to the boundary where the fans had gathered with the cake.

The New Zealand skipper took a bite from a piece of cake from a fan and fed the man a piece in return before exchanging high fives with the group and posing for a few selfies.

Sri Lanka Cricket tweeted a few pictures of the moment, with the message “What a way to celebrate the Birthday!”, prompting an outpouring of wishes for Williamson on social media.
