Kane Williamson's unbeaten 200 against Bangladesh in the first Test at Hamilton has given him an opportunity of dethroning Indian captain Virat Kohli as the number 1 Test batsman. 

Williamson's exploits against Bangladesh has ascended his tally to a career-high 915 points in the ICC rankings, which is marginally behind Virat Kohli, who acquires the top spot with 922 points. 

Meanwhile, Williamson – who was briefly ranked number 1 in late 2015 - is only the second New Zealand player to have crossed the 900-point mark after Richard Hadlee, who once gathered 909 points with his bowling brilliance. Having started the Bangladesh series with 897 Points, the New Zealand captain still has two more Tests to play; something that Kohli is devoid of until after the World Cup. 

On the back of Williamson's double century as well as Raval and Latham's respective tons, New Zealand rode on to a mammoth total of 715 for six, which was enough for the Kiwis to secure a win an innings-and-52-run victory. 

All eyes will be on Williamson when the remaining Tests kick off; from March 8th and 16th at Wellington and Christchurch respectively.

Other advancements include the likes of Latham and Raval whose tons have moved them up to 11th and 33rd respectively. In terms of bowling department, Trent Boult and Tim Southee remain in top-10, while Neil Wagner has notched up to 11th place.
