Williamson hit an unbeaten 101 and added 140 for the first wicket with Anton Devcich (67) as the New Zealand side posted an imposing 206-5 in Raipur on Friday.

South Africa's Cape Cobras were at 44-2 from 7.2 overs when play stopped due to inclement weather, giving Williamson and his team-mates a 33-run win via the Duckworth-Lewis method.

And Williamson claimed the innings was the best of his Twenty20 career as Northern Districts " who won three qualifiers to reach the tournament proper " continued their excellent form.

"It's nice to contribute like that today," Williamson said.

"We had a bit of luck at the start with balls falling into gaps and it was great batting with Anton.

"I suppose it has to be [my standout T20 innings] and it was nice to bat through.

"[I am] always trying to work on my shots and hit the balls into the gaps and adapting to different conditions.

"It's great to have four wins in a row and play at the same ground and be reasonably familiar with it."

Northern Districts captain Daniel Flynn hailed Williamson's impact.

"[We had] a bit of luck with the weather, we just managed to get the overs in," he said.

"But [it was a] fantastic innings from Kane. It was great to watch."

Cape Cobras skipper Justin Ontong acknowledged Williamson and Devcich's partnership was crucial.

"[It was a] fantastic opening stand and a fantastic innings by Kane," Ontong said.

"[That] put us on the back foot right from the start. It didn't help that we didn't take the half-chances."
