Kane Williamson is set to topple Virat Kohli as the number one Test batsman in the world.

The New Zealand skipper smashed an unbeaten double century in the first Test against Bangladesh to propel himself to a career-high 915 points in the ICC rankings.

The innings puts him just behind Kohli.

However, the India captain will not be playing any Test cricket in the near future while Williamson has two more matches left in his side's series against Bangladesh.
