In his 100th Test match, Kane Williamson beats Virat Kohli’s big milestone despite only making 17 runs

<p>When he was on the field for the second Test match against Australia on Friday, March 8, Kane Williamson put another feather in his crown. He became one of the select few players who have played 100 Tests for his nation, along with captain Tim Southee. At the Hagley Oval in Christchurch, however, the match started badly for the host side as Australia dismissed the Kiwis for only 162 runs in their first inning.</p>

<p>Williamson, a former Test captain, scored a ton of runs in four innings against South Africa during the previous series, but he hasn’t been successful in any of his three matches against Australia so far. Even though he could only produce 17 runs in his historic Test, the guy was still able to surpass Virat Kohli on the list of all-time runs scored in the history of the World Test Championship (WTC).</p>
<p>Due to his decision to skip the current five-match Test series against England for personal reasons, Kohli has suffered. Williamson, however, has been robbing runs for fun, and it took him only 15 runs to surpass Kohli in this list. With four hundred and ten fifties to his credit, the latter has amassed 2235 runs at an average of 39.21 in 60 innings so far.</p>
<p>After passing him in only 39 innings, Kane Williamson has collected 2238 runs at an incredible 63.94 average, including two half-centuries and ten centuries. On the first day of the second Test, New Zealand is struggling, so he will be devastated not to have converted the start. Josh Hazlewood was the main wrecker, claiming his 12th career five-wicket total, while Mitchell Starc also had a fantastic day, taking three wickets.</p>
