Taylor, though, continued on his merry way and reached the three-figure mark by thumping Taijul into the downtown territories for a six. What a way to complete the milestone??? He takes out his helmet and celebrates the landmark. It has been a scintillating innings from Taylor, with the middle order batsman exploring all corners of the ground.
He also went past his mentor Martin Crowe's 17 centuries with his latest hundred. Ah, Crowe was a great batsman. Excellent against all types of bowling.
Finally a wicket!!
A sigh of relief for Bangladesh as Taijul dismisses Williamson. With the duo of Taylor and Williamson tearing apart Bangladesh's attack, it looked like the visitors would have to wait for long to pick up a wicket. Taylor, in particular, took a liking to Sarkar's friendly medium pace by tonking him for five fours and a six. Finally, against the run of play, Williamson eked out a leading edge with Taijul pouching a return catch. But the damage has been done - with the hosts trailing by just over 30 runs and seven wickets still in hand.
Williamson, Taylor complete fifties
Eventually, Williamson reached the 50-run mark with a well-timed pull off Mustafizur. Ross Taylor too soon reached the milestone. After those two grassed chances, Bangladesh have lost their way.
Taylor on the move
Those two dropped catches might have just broken the back of Bangladesh's attack. Hossain and Jayed started to offer width as Taylor crunched a few cuts to the boundary hoardings. Costly misses.
On a side note, Williamson seems to be troubled by a shoulder issue. He took a pill or two during the drinks break.
Drama and action!!!
Wow! What a start to the day. In the 15th over, the fielder at short cover dropped a sitter and in the same over, Islam at second slip fluffed a relativity easy chance. Jayed was the unlucky bowler and Taylor the lucky batsman on both occasions. Jayed also extracted seam movement and bounce to get one to whistle past the outside edge of Taylor and induced an inside edge as well.
Drama and action. As Bill Lawry would say, "It is all happening!"
Anyway, on a green seamer, New Zealand wouldn't have picked a spinner.
After a couple of days were washed out, Day 3 had its fair share of thrills and spills. On a day when 12 wickets fell, Bangladesh's pacers - Hossain and Jayed - shone brightly at the fag end of the final session by extracting appreciable seam movement. Jayed was the bowler who reaped the rewards by taking the wickets of the openers.
The pacers certainly have given a window of opportunity for the home side to script a comeback after their batsmen let them down. On a track with a healthy dose of grass covering, most of Bangladesh's batsmen succumbed to the short ball tactics of Neil Wagner. Tamim Iqbal, who cracked a fine hand of 74, also couldn't resist taking on the short ball and fell to Wagner. The visitors were eventually bundled out for 211.
Can the tourists continue to make incisions? We will have all the action in a while.
