Williamson scores his first ton for Gloucestershire

5:16 pm on 20 May 2011

The New Zealand cricketer Kane Williamson has scored his first century for Gloucestershire on a rain interrupted opening day in the English County Championship Division Two match against Leicestershire at Grace Road.

Gloucestershire, who lost a wicket to the second ball of the day without a run on the board, recovered to reach the close at 177 for three - with Black Cap Test batsman Williamson unbeaten on 102.

Williamson's top score in his first two Championship games for Gloucestershire was a modest 26, but he cruised past that in some style reaching his century off 152 balls with 17 boundaries.
