New Zealand collected 266 runs for eight wickets at the end of the second day’s play at the Sylhet International Cricket Stadium on Wednesday.

Taijul Islam broke through the castle of Kane Williamson close to the end of the second day.

The New Zealand batter scored 104 runs off 205 deliveries -- his innings featuring two dropped-chances.

Kyle Jamieson (7) and Tim Southee (1) will start the third day’s play tomorrow.

Taijul was the most successful of the Bangladesh bowlers with four wickets for 89 runs. The three other bowlers and part-timer Mominul Haque got a wicket each. 

“All the sessions are as crucial as each other. We have work to do with the bat. Every run counts. Then we change our focus. The wicket is deteriorating quite quickly, so we have to keep moving with it," Williamson who hit 104 for his 29th century said.

Earlier, Bangladesh were bowled out for 310 in its first innings.
