Kane Stuart Williamson (born 8 August 1990) is a New Zealand Test cricketer. He plays for Northern Districts, making his first-class debut in December 2007. He made his U-19 debut against the touring Indian U-19 team in 2007 and was named captain of the New Zealand U-19 team for the 2008 U-19 Cricket World Cup. Williamson also represented New Zealand in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 hosted by Subcontinental nations. On 14 August 2013, Williamson signed for Yorkshire for the rest of the English county season.



    Williamson attended Tauranga Boys' College from 2004–2008 where he was Head Boy in his final year and was coached by Josh Simms.

    After a difficult winter tour with the Emerging Players' Squad, Williamson bounced back in fine style for Northern Districts averaging almost a hundred in the domestic one-day tournament, culminating in scoring 69 off 71 balls the final victory over Auckland Aces.

    On 24 March 2010 Williamson was named in the New Zealand Test squad for the second Test against Australia, but ultimately he did not play in the match.

    Williamson made his One-Day International debut against India on 10 August 2010. He was dismissed for a 9th ball duck. In his second match, he was bowled by Angelo Mathews for a second ball duck. He scored his maiden ODI century against Bangladesh on 14 October 2010 in Dhaka and hence became the youngest centurion in New Zealand cricket history. Due to his performance on the Bangladesh tour where New Zealand suffered a 4–0 whitewash, Williamson was selected in the New Zealand Test squad for the tour of India that followed.

    Williamson made his Test cricket debut against India at Ahmedabad on 4 November 2010. In his first innings he scored 131 runs off 299 balls and became the eighth New Zealand player to score a century on Test debut.

    After a promising start to his international career, Williamson was signed up by the Gloucestershire County Cricket Club.

    Williamson is currently third on the list (behind Corey Anderson and Ross Taylor) for the highest ever strike-rated century by a New Zealander in a One-Day International. He achieved during his 100* off 69 balls against Zimbabwe at Bulawayo, but a fine innings of 99* by Malcolm Waller ensured that he ended up on the losing side.
