New Zealand international Kane Williamson has joined Yorkshire’s side for a training session ahead of the LV= County Championship match against Nottinghamshire later this week.
Having arrived early on Sunday morning, Kane was welcomed by members of the coaching squad and current team before meeting members of the local press at Headingley ahead of his first training session.
Williamson was then presented with his playing shirt, engraved with his name and the number 8, a number last worn by Yorkshire legend Darren Gough.
The Tauranga-born batsman averages just over 40 with the bat in First-Class cricket and has a top score of 284 not out. He has previously played for Gloucestershire in 2011 and 2012.
On his latest County Cricket venture, this time with Yorkshire, Williamson said last week: “It is a Club steeped in history and with some important cricket still to be played this season, I hope I can make a difference and help Yorkshire realise its dream of winning the Championship crown in its 150th anniversary year.”
We are sure you will join us in welcoming Kane to Yorkshire and to Headingley.
