Black Caps skipper Kane Williamson drew a blank today when a young New Zealand cricket fan asked him about his thoughts about the thrilling Chappell-Hadlee ODI series opener against Australia at Eden Park in January.

Williamson was interviewed by Jimi Samuels, 7, as the Black Caps spent the afternoon with children with heart conditions.

Jimi Samuels, 7, a mad cricket enthusiast, was given the opportunity to ask his hero Williamson questions about playing for the national side.

"At the Chappell-Hadlee series last season at Eden Park, how do you remember the finish?" asked Samuels.

"Ahhh you mean the last game?" asked Williamson, who drew a blank.

The New Zealand skipper had to be reminded by a Black Caps staff member about his heroics in stopping Aussie all-rounder Marcus Stoinis from almost snatching a comeback win for Australia.

Williamson got the crucial run-out of Josh Hazlewood, guiding New Zealand to a six wicket win over their Trans-Tasman rivals.

The Black Caps spent the afternoon with Heart Kids children and their families, the organisation providing support to those with childhood heart conditions.
