Black Caps skipper-in-waiting Kane Williamson has re-signed with English county champions Yorkshire.

Williamson, the only batsman ranked in the top four in all forms of the game, will be available for Yorkshire in June and July ahead of the Black Caps tour of South Africa.

"I am looking forward to joining the team for a third term this summer," Williamson told the Yorkshire website.

"It is enjoyable being part of a successful team that are hungry for ongoing success."

The 25-year-old scored 2,633 runs for the Black Caps in 2015 across all formats, including eight centuries.
