Williamson Taken to Hospital for Scans on Injured Left Shoulder

Two full days of play were lost to rain in Wellington but New Zealand still managed to bowl out Bangladesh for 211 and 209.

Bangladesh's Tamim Iqbal Khan celebrates 50 runs during day three of the 2nd Test cricket match between New Zealand and Bangladesh at the Basin Reserve in Wellington on 10 March 2019.

Williamson injured the shoulder while fielding on Sunday but continued his innings this morning, but twice had to call out the physio for some running repairs, and didn't look comfortable playing some shots.

After the first two days of the test were washed out, the Black Caps were left with the unenviable task of trying to manufacture a victory in a three-day test - something they hadn't had to do since 2001.

Taylor's 18th test century, and third double ton, moved him ahead of former New Zealand captain Crowe, who retired with 17 test hundreds and had spent the last few years of his life mentoring the right-hander.

"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.

Detroit Lions reportedly sign former Steelers TE Jesse James
James, along with Coleman and Flowers, can't officially sign with the team until free agency begins on Wednesday. James played his first four seasons with the Steelers, making 120 catches for 1,189 yards and nine touchdowns.

"I said to Hogan (Crowe) sorry it's taken so long but I think he will be proud".

With Bangladesh's bowlers struggling to make a breakthrough, Taylor and Nicholls brought up their 200-run partnership before the latter completed his fifth Test hundred by sweeping Taijul Islam away to the fine leg boundary. He was on 20 at the time.

Two overs later, the 27-year-old was bowled by the visitors' spinner after failing to connect with a low delivery and Taylor was soon back in the pavilion too - sending a top-edge behind to the wicketkeeper off Mustafizur Rahman the ball after reaching his 200. Williamson underwent an MRI scan on Tuesday which revealed the tear to the minor (smaller) pectoral muscle on his left side.

If Williamson is ruled out then Central Stags batsman Will Young will be in line to debut for New Zealand.

New Zealand won the first test in Hamilton by an innings and 52 runs, with the third match starting on Saturday in Christchurch.

They plundered 334 runs off just 64 overs on Monday for the loss of one wicket.
