A spectacular double century by captain Kane Williamson saw New Zealand declare on a mammoth 519-7 in their first innings against the West Indies on Friday.
Williamson started the second day’s play in Hamilton on 97 and continued where he left off with the bat, despite losing Ross Taylor fairly early on in the proceedings.
The right-hander put the West Indies bowlers to the sword with some elegant batting that saw him surpass the 100-run and 15o-run mark in no time before bringing up his third double ton.

Williamson received some decent assistance down the order by Kyle Jamieson, who also fought his way to a well-played half-century.
