Twitter erupts as Kane Williamson hits 24th century of his glorious Test career

Kane Williamson

Black Caps captain Kane Williamson is having s dream run in the ongoing summer of New Zealand. After smashing a double hundred against West Indies followed by a century in the first Test against Pakistan, Williamson yet again showed his top-class batting as he slammed another ton in the ongoing second Test against Mohammed Rizwan and Co. at Hagley Oval in Christchurch.

During the 72nd over of Kiwi innings bowled by Faheem Ashraf, Williamson guided the ball towards fine leg for a boundary and reached his Test career’s 24th century. He took just 35 balls to go from fifty to hundred.

Most Test Centuries since 2010

27 – Virat Kohli
26 – Steve Smith
24 – Kane Williamson
24 – David Warner
23 – Alastair Cook

Meanwhile, on Day 2, New Zealand have scored 284/3 in 83 overs. Williamson and Henry Nicholls are batting on 111 and 88 runs respectively.

Here is how Twitter reacted:

Another 100 from the great Kane Williamson. Justly the number 1 batsman in the world at the moment. Some form this.

There are few 200 run partnerships that feel like such a gut punch #NZvPAK

One day up.. next day down.. Kane Williamson's masterclass leaves Pakistan in shambles. Noballs. Drops.. hopelessness all around. #NZvPAK

Very benefit-of-hindsight tweet, but putting on Shan before tea really did get Williamson going.

Until then, he'd scored 21 off 72. Took 11 runs off the 5 balls Shan bowled to him, and has gone at better than a run a ball since. #NZvsPAK

Test runs since 2010 for all countries. Only Kohli and Smith have more test centuries than Kane Williamson. Only Smith has a higher average. #nzvpak #NZvsPak
