New Zealand captain Kane Williamson saw his team home in a tough chase against South Africa. His unbeaten 106 put New Zealand back on top of the table, and all but ended South Africa's chances of making the semi-finals.
Gem of a player, Kane Williamson. Composure and class— Mike atherton (@Athersmike) June 19, 2019
Morgan grabbed the headlines for his power Hitting exploits yesterday and rightly so but this Williamson innings today is something else ... Under immense pressure he has played an old school gem ... What a player ... What a Ton ... #CWC19 #YorkshirePlayer— Michael Vaughan (@MichaelVaughan) June 19, 2019

Kane Williamson take a bow!#cwc19
An innings from a genuine match winner! An innings under immense pressure from Kane Willamson, quality batting and so much for others to learn from. https://t.co/hA8jZKZ3Gj— Shahid Afridi (@SAfridiOfficial) June 19, 2019
Who's the coolest of them all?
Kohli's skills + Dhoni's calm = Kane Williamson. What a guy! #NZvSA— Shridhar V (@iimcomic) June 19, 2019
Williamson's six in the final over - which also took him to his hundred - brought back memories of the famous Grant Elliott shot in that epic 2015 World Cup semi-final.
One of the closely-contested games of the tournament. We are hoping for more, aren't we?

The defeat pretty much put South Africa out of contention for the semi-finals.
Nooo!!! That hurts.. well fought brothers!! #NZvSA— Morne Morkel (@mornemorkel65) June 19, 2019
Been asking for 100 from someone from the start... can't win games with 60s and 50s.. Kane Williamson great composure under pressure..— Herschelle Gibbs (@hershybru) June 19, 2019
Williamson did survive a few close calls though. South Africa didn't review a caught-behind when he was in the 70s.
And the one thing Williamson perhaps missed.
