Surprised the fan
The name of this 99-year-old fan of Williamson is Muru. The New Zealand player met him and his daughter Nalayani recently. Williamson also gifted a bat to Muru. This bat is signed by all the members of the team that took part in the Test series against the West Indies in 2017. Both talked to each other for a long time. Muru’s daughter told that her father has been a fan of Williamson ever since the batsman donated his match fees for the victims of the 2014 terror attack in Pakistan. Muru said that Williamson is not just a great cricketer but he is a great human being. He said that Williamson does not play just to win and this makes him special from others.
When the family of 99-year-old cricket superfan Muru reached out to NZ Cricket, they were hoping for a cheeky birthday autograph.
