Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor are easily New Zealand's highest scoring pair in test cricket, with 3608 runs together. This is the most for any active pair in the world, but some way short of Tendulkar/Dravid's all-time mark of 6920.

Williamson/Taylor have over 55% more runs than the next best for NZ (2327, WIlliamson/Latham). To highlight just how rare it is for NZ to have two world-class batsmen at the same time, Williamson/Taylor are in the top 16 partnerships of all time and will climb up that ranking. No other NZ pair makes the top 60.

Top NZ Test Batting Pairs
1. Williamson/Taylor 3608 (16th in the world)
2. Williamson/Latham 2327 (64th)
3. Astle/Fleming 1951 (97th)

Blatantly stolen from CricInfo commentary.

"Here's a stat for you - since 2017 Kane Williamson has averaged 60.48 in test cricket, an impressive stat by itself, however his weakness has been susceptibility early. If he gets past just 5 runs his average leaps up to massive 93.90!"

Once he hits a boundary he's basically Bradman.

Difference: +25.52

Kohli

I guess the other relevant info is the proportion of innings of >5 each has:
Williamson: 29/41 = 70.7%
Kohli: 44/57 = 77.2%
Smith: 44/49 = 89.8%
Root: 67/81 = 82.7%

So the good news for teams playing NZ is that Williamson is frail until he has 6 runs.
