Taylor keeps New Zealand afloat

Off-spinner Sunil Narine was already indicating he would be a factor later in the game as he put New Zealand’s batsmen under immense pressure on the second day of the third Test on Friday before the hosts finished on 156 for three at the close of play.

Narine captured the key wicket of Kane Williamson shortly before the close as the 23-year-old batsman had seemed well set with Ross Taylor to capitalise on the third day at Seddon Park. Taylor was 56 not out, taking his series tally to 418 runs, while captain Brendon McCullum was on 11 at the close with the hosts still 211 runs behind the visitors’ 367.

Shivnarine Chanderpaul brought up his 29th Test century and became the 6th highest Test run scorer of all time.
