The New Zealand batting mainstay brought his century with a four off Roach. He went to register his highest score in Test cricket before being sent back Alzarri Joseph. Kane Williamson’s 251-run knock came off 412 balls and was studded with 34 fours and a couple of sixes.

His previous highest score in Test was an unbeaten 242 against Sri Lanka at the Basin Reserve in January 2015. Kane Williamson’s other Test double ton came in Hamilton too against Bangladesh in February last year. Kane Williamson has a stunning record in Hamilton. He now has two double centuries and three tons at Seddon Park in 17 innings – all coming within his last 10 innings here.

As far as the match is concerned, New Zealand declared their innings on a mammoth total of 519 for 7. Tom Latham scored 86 at the top of the order before Kyle Jamieson scored an unbeaten fifty too to take his team’s score past the 500-run mark.
