Kane Williamson to return for Test series against Australia

Kane Williamson is expected to return to action for the two-match Test series against Australia, starting on February 29 at Basin Reserve in Wellington, New Zealand.

Williamson was in incredible form during the two-match Test series against South Africa at home. In the first Test, the 33-year-old scored two centuries, becoming the fifth New Zealand player after Glen Turner, Geoff Howarth, Andrew Jones and Peter Fulton to achieve this feat in a Test match.

In the second Test, Kane Williamson became the fastest player to score 32 centuries in the format, achieving the milestone in his 172nd innings. He bettered Australia’s talismanic batter Steve Smith record of 174 innings to 32 Test centuries.

Kane Williamson will look to continue his good form in the Tests in the upcoming matches against Australia.
