    Yorkshire have acquired the services of New Zealand batsman Kane Williamson as a fourth overseas player for a third stint at the English county.

    Williamson, 24, will arrive at the Headingley for the latter stages of the County Championship campaign this season due to New Zealand’s ODI tour of Zimbabwe and South Africa.

    The right-handed batsman has played 39 Tests for his country, scoring 3,034 runs at an average of 45.96, helped the White Rose county to their first title in 13 years last season, scoring 629 runs at an average of 57.18.

    Williamson will join the Australian duo Aaron Finch and Glenn Maxwell and the Pakistani batsman Younis Khan for the 2015 season.
