Twitterati hail “King” Kane Williamson for his stunning match-winning ton

The script was written aptly. Kane Williamson made his Christmas time special by slamming another match-winning ton against Sri Lanka at Hamilton as New Zealand won the series 2-0. His skipper Brendon McCullum hailed the knock calling it “sheer class from the king” and quite fittingly, ICC soon released their rankings with Williamson now crowned the No. 1-ranked Test batsman. He went past South Africa’s AB de Villiers.

Quite deserving end to the year for the Kiwi lad. No one has scored more runs in international cricket in 2015 than New Zealand’s Kane Williamson. He has tumbled numerous records this year and cricket fans around the world in Twitter praised the 25-year-old for his phenomenal success.

Williamson has scored 1172 runs at 90.15 in Tests this year. He has brought up five hundreds and four fifties from just 16 innings. We bring you some of the best tweets.
