Bouncer king Wagner demolishes Bangladesh as New Zealand take series

New Zealand's Ross Taylor looks to the heavens after competing his century against BangladeshMore

After play on the first two days was lost, the covers were removed Sunday to reveal a bright green pitch which offered bounce and seam movement.

While Taylor managed to surpass Crowe and move into second on New Zealand's all-time centuries list, he is still two behind current captain Kane Williamson, who scored 74 earlier in the day and suffered a left shoulder injury.

Williamson picked up the injury when he fell awkwardly trying to stop a ball at gully during the Bangladesh innings.

"If we keep taking it session by session and get ourselves into the lead and pile on whatever we can, anything is possible".

Central Stags batsman Will Young is overdue an global debut and will play in Christchurch if Williamson is ruled out.

Tim Southee is the on-field captain, New Zealand cricket posted on Twitter on Monday.

In fact, he was twice attended by the medical staff as he came on to bat.

Stead countered: "If he's fit, no player wants to give up their spot in the test team". Once I got there it was probably a bit of a relief and then I didn't kick on.

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.

It was their third consecutive fifty-plus partnership, the first time that feat had been achieved in New Zealand by an opening pair since South Africa's Herschelle Gibbs and Gary Kirsten in 1999.

Williamson may delay his departure for the Indian Premier League after he was injured in a Test match against Bangladesh.

Stead also provided an update on wicketkeeper BJ Watling, who hurt himself while warming up before play at the Basin Reserve on day five.

"If things progress as we hope, then still going to the IPL shouldn't be a problem to him", said Stead. "But he's also aware that if he's not quite 100 per cent, then we will potentially hold him back as well and make sure he is right before he goes on that plane".

"It it was a World Cup final and we needed him [Watling] to be out there he would have gone out, but we thought with the next test match further down the track there was no point in risking him".
