CT 2017Live: Williamson helps Kiwis to healthy total

Champions Trophy live: New Zealand rode on a century by Kane Williamson and handsome contributions by Luke Ronchi and Ross Taylor to post a total of 291 runs in their Group A match against Australia at the Champions Trophy cricket tournament here on Friday.

Williamson led the Kiwi charge with a solid innings of 100 runs before being run out. His 97-ball innings included eight boundaries and three sixes.

Ronchi chipped in with a quick fire 65 off 43 deliveries which included nine boundaries and three sixes.

Taylor, on the other hand, was unlucky to miss out on what would have been a wel-deserved half-century as he was dismissed on 46, hitting six boundaries during his 58-ball stay at the crease.

Fast bowler Josh Hazlewood produced an excellent display of pace bowling to return figures of 6/52 — three of those wickets coming off four deliveries in the penultimate over of the innings.
