New Zealand v England: Captain Kane Williamson breaks century record on rain-hit day

Captain Kane Williamson completed a New Zealand record 18th century as rain disrupted much of day two of the first Test against England in Auckland.

Only 23.1 overs were bowled with Williamson, who resumed on 91, completing his ton before being trapped lbw by James Anderson for 102.

That was the only wicket to fall as the hosts increased their lead to 171 after England were all out for 58 on day one.

Play was eventually abandoned in the final session with the score 229-4.

Williamson’s innings saw him move past the New Zealand centuries record jointly held by Martin Crowe and Ross Taylor.
