       The best of the action as Neil Zealand completed an innings victory over Bangladesh

But after the Black Caps tore through Bangladesh's batting order on the third day, veteran batsman Ross Taylor backed them up with an impressive double-century yesterday to set up today's thrilling conclusion.

With Williamson, he guided New Zealand to 38-2 at stumps on the third day, then continued to lead the home team's innings in hard batting conditions at the start of the fourth day.

After rain prevented any play on the first two days, the weather cleared enough to allow more than 72 overs on a green wicket on day three with 13 wickets falling before the rain returned.

It didn't stop him from reaching 50 for the 50th time in test cricket, but once he was dismissed for 74 by spinner Taijul Islam, Williamson headed to a radiology clinic for some precautionary scans, returning in time to see Ross Taylor and Henry Nicholls bring up milestones after tea.

Williamson departed to have scans on a shoulder and pectoral injury - sustained when he fell in the field - with New Zealand 180-3.

It came on a fourth day when the hosts completely dominated Bangladesh in the second Test to close in on a series win.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has asserted that Ilhan Omar's anti-Semitic comments were just a different "use of words". Asked whether they had a date yet for a summit, Sanders said: "Not yet".

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

"But he's also aware of it's not quite 100 then we will potentially hold him back and just make sure he is right before he goes on that plane".

Taylor, the only top-order New Zealand batsman to fail in the first Test, was in a particularly aggressive mood with boundaries off the first two balls he faced. In doing so he overtook his mentor Martin Crowe, who scored 17 centuries in his celebrated career.

Trent Boult and Matt Henry then reduced the visitors to 80 for three and Bangladesh still need another 141 runs to make New Zealand bat again at the Basin Reserve. Tamim hit the first ball for four; Boult smiled ruefully, then produced an nearly unplayable delivery which swung, then seamed back to bowl Iqbal.

Boult clean bowled Tamim Iqbal (4) and then had Mominul Haque (10) edging to Tim Southee at third slip.
