On only the third morning when play was possible in Wellington after the first two days were washed out, Bangladesh fell apart in the face of Wagner's short-ball barrage.

Apart from the two dropped catches off Abu Jayed in the third over, the raw Bangladesh seamers, with only 17 Tests between, them were unable to make full use of the green strip.

Bangladesh had resumed on 80 for three, still requiring another 141 runs to make New Zealand bat again after the hosts' first innings of 432 for six declared with Ross Taylor (200) scoring his 18th century and Henry Nicholls (107) his fifth.

New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson on Monday was rushed to a hospital following a shoulder injury during the second Test match against Bangladesh at the Basin Reserve here.

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.

Despite the discomfort, Williamson made 74 before he was dismissed.

Jones, who has been with NFL Network since 2012, said this is the Beckham she hopes the world will get to know in Cleveland. He's made three pro bowls in five seasons with the Giants, totaling 5,476 yards and 44 touchdowns in 59 games.


Williamson took no further part in the day's play and went for a scan on the shoulder which proved inconclusive and he will have a second scan on Tuesday.

Despite Mahmudullah's resistance, Wagner ran through the tail to give New Zealand the win.

"From what I've been speaking with the physio and Kane about, if things progress as we hope, then going to the IPL shouldn't be a problem for him. Obviously being a three-day test we knew we had to be proactive and try to get as many runs as we can, even if it was a 100-run lead, just to speed up the game".

Taylor and Williamson had combined late on the third day with New Zealand struggling at 8-2. But his share of the record lasted only minutes before Taylor reached his 31st half century.

It worked. Bangladesh was 119-1 approaching lunch but Wagner took two wickets immediately before the break and two more soon afterwards, capturing the key wicket of Tamim Iqbal for 74, as Bangladesh slumped to 168-6. Tamim hit the first ball for four; Boult smiled ruefully, then produced an nearly unplayable delivery which swung, then seamed back to bowl Iqbal.
