Kane Williamson May Miss Start Of IPL 2019 Due To Injured Shoulder

Henry Nicholls (107) also made a century as the Black Caps reached 432-6 before declaring with a 221-run first-innings lead.

Black Caps captain Kane Williamson is in doubt for the third test against Bangladesh, after suffering a shoulder injury in the second test at the Basin Reserve.

Short-ball specialist Neil Wagner engineered an innings victory over Bangladesh in what New Zealand called "an ideal two days" in the rain-shortened second Test to wrap up the series with a game to spare.

"If things progress as we hope, then still going to the IPL shouldn't be a problem to him", said Stead.

With Williamson, he guided New Zealand to 38-2 at stumps on the third day, then continued to lead the home team's innings in hard batting conditions at the start of the fourth day.

Ross Taylor whispered a prayer and an apology to the late Martin Crowe Monday as he overtook his mentor's century tally during an exceptional innings of 200 that put New Zealand in a strong position in the second Test against Bangladesh.

After completing the double century, Taylor was dismissed by Mustafizur Rahman in the following over when he tried a big hit.

"We were under a bit of pressure at the end of the first day and obviously the wicket was offering a lot".

Taylor came to the crease with New Zealand 8-2 in reply to Bangladesh's first innings of 211, forced to bat in approaching darkness on a green pitch that produced sharp seam movement and venomous bounce.

Head coach Gary Stead said Williamson will travel with the team to Christchurch where he'll be further assessed ahead of the third and final Test, starting on Saturday at Hagley Oval.

"We could have done better than what we did in the match", said Bangladesh stand-in captain Mahmudullah Riyad.

Tamim fell shortly after the first break and while there was some resistance from first-Test centurion Soumya Sarkar (20) and wicketkeeper Liton Das (33), New Zealand rattled through the tail with the last four wickets falling for five runs.

"I told Hogan (Crowe) "my apologies" for taking so long to get there", said Taylor who scored his 17th century in 2017, almost two years after Crowe died from cancer. "We could have done a lot better and we feel we're much better than that".
