Kane Williamsan makes birthday memorable with world record.

Kane Williamson has entered his name into the history books as New Zealand continued to turn the screws on Zimbabwe in the second Test in Bulawayo. In his second Test as Black Caps captain, Williamson made a dashing 113 as the visitors moved to 4-436 at lunch on day two.
And upon reaching three figures, the 25-year-old, who actually celebrates his 26th birthday yesterday (Monday), became the youngest man in Test history to post hundreds against all Test-playing nations – a milestone he narrowly missed in the series opener when he made 91. Williamson is the first New Zealander to achieve what remains a rare feat among Test batsmen; he joins what now becomes an elite club of 13.
Williamson is one of 13 players to have notched a ton against every other Test nation. Still a day shy of his 26th birthday, he is the only player to have achieved the feat in his 20s. Kumar Sangakkara was previously the youngest player to have completed the set (30 years and 38 days).Williamson is also the quickest player to reach the landmark in terms of innings (91), Tests (50) and days from debut (2104). All three records previously belonged to Sangakkara (69 Tests, 114 innings, 2693 days).
