Kane Williamson has posted his highest score of the English county cricket season to date, with 97 for Yorkshire against Durham.

The New Zealand No 3, who will join his team-mates in the Caribbean at the end of this month, batted 277 minutes and faced 209 balls in his knock on day one of the division one match at Chester-le-Street.

He was bowled three short of his 15th first-class century by Durham paceman Chris Rushworth as Yorkshire posted 299-3 at stumps after choosing to bat first.

This was Williamson's second season with the Jason Gillespie-coached Yorkshire and has so far this season posted scores of 0, 57 not out, 3, 30, 37 and now 97.
