Williamson is only compared to all-time greats despite breaking records and surpassing his countrymen.

Kane Williamson, who just scored his fifth double century in Test cricket, has surpassed everyone in New Zealand cricket before him and is now only matched by the greatest players in the history of the game.

Williamson excelled in Karachi, surpassing Brendon McCullum to take exclusive possession of the New Zealand Test double century record. He helped his team to a commanding first-innings advantage and did the bulk of the heavy lifting with the lower order.

Williamson was outstanding with the tail, culminating in a partnership of 154 at No. 8 with Ish Sodhi, the second-highest partnership of the innings, despite being six wickets down after surpassing Pakistan’s 438. He successfully hid No. 11 Ajaz Patel to reach the milestone and brought up his 200 with a single off Abrar Ahmed’s spin.

When New Zealand reached the mark, new captain Tim Southee called his former captain in, ensuring that Williamson’s ten-hour stint at the bat, which featured 21 fours and a six, would go untarnished.
