New Delhi:

New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson became the most prolific century-maker for the Kiwis after registering his 18th Test century for the Black Caps' against England on a rain-hit day two of the first Test at Auckland on Friday.

At tea in Auckland, the New Zealand captain was not out on 100 with Henry Nicholls on 36 for a lead of 139 runs, after England crumbled to be all out for 58 on day one.

New Zealand resumed on Friday at 175 for three with Williamson and Nicholls calmly adding 22 runs in 40 minutes, enough time for the skipper to reach his historic hundred before rain drove the players from the field.

Tea was taken 30 minutes early, although the weather had cleared by then.
