New Zealand Captain Kane Williamson Taken to Hospital

He helped New Zealand negotiate a hard first half-hour Monday when the ball still dominated the bat and went on to reach his half century from 67 balls.

New Zealand captain Kane Williamson is a doubt for the third test of the Bangladesh series after suffering a torn pectoral muscle in the innings and 12-run second test win in Wellington.

Williamson suffered a left shoulder injury while diving in the field during Bangladesh's first innings on Sunday.

Williamson, who batted with a painful shoulder injury, made it through to 74 before he was dismissed and taken for a scan which proved inconclusive.

On the morning of the match, New Zealand's largest Sunday newspaper ran a column denouncing his use of bodyline or leg theory as intimidatory and risky.

When Bangladesh resumed day five at 80-3, Trent Boult made the initial breakthrough by dismissing Soumya Sarkar for 28.

Frustrated by its failure of technique, New Zealand resorted to brute force and called on Neil Wagner to use his contentious bodyline approach to bounce out the Bangladesh batsmen.

The lush green pitch revealed when the covers were finally removed after play was washed out on Friday and Saturday prompted Williamson to ask Bangladesh counterpart Mahmudullah to bat and face his four-pronged pace attack. When Taylor was out for 200, New Zealand was 421-5 and already 210 runs ahead.

On the third over of the fourth day, Bangladesh fluffed Ross Taylor's catch twice when he was on 20 and those misses eventually cost them the Test.

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

Taylor and Williamson had combined late on the third day with New Zealand struggling at 8-2.

Three of the dismissals, including the key scalp of Tamim Iqbal for 74, came in a sharp 13-ball spell from Wagner either side of lunch.

Nicholls swept Taijul Islam to the boundary to bring up his fifth century in the second over after tea, but only faced another seven deliveries before Taijul bowled him for 107. Tamim hit the first ball for four; Boult smiled ruefully, then produced an nearly unplayable delivery which swung, then seamed back to bowl Iqbal.
