New Zealand‘s Kane Williamson, en route to his sixth Test century in the first Test against West Indies, crossed 2000 runs in the longest format of the game and thereby became the youngest Kiwi to do so, beating former captain Martin Crowe. By doing so, Williamson joins an elite brand of players to reach the millestone before the age of 24.

New Zealand’s Number 3 in the longer formats now joins some of the most chequered names in the game in the form of Don Bradman, Sachin Tendulkar and Garry Sobers. Williamson is still unbeaten at the crease at stumps on first day against West Indies and is looking good for an even bigger score. The blond batsman made a patient 105 against an uninspiring attack. Williamson was well supported by opener Tom Latham to bring up his second ton of the calender year.
