Newly appointed Zimbabwe skipper Sean Williams hit a sparkling century on the opening day of the second Test against Sri Lanka at Harare. The left-handed middle-order batsman gave the hosts the upper hand with a fantastic knock to cap off a dominant day.
Williams scored briskly for his team by mustering 107 runs off 137 deliveries, saving his side from an embarrassing collapse. Williams combined with Sikandar Raza for an attacking 159-run stand for the fifth wicket with the latter also accumulating an important half-century.
The Zimbabwe captain slammed three sixes and ten fours in his vibrant innings, punishing the wayward lines opted by the Sri Lankan bowlers. Williams’ emphatic contribution has set the base for a solid first-innings total for Zimbabwe.
