He wasn't seen on the field since then, and Tim Southee took over the captaincy.

An effective four-wicket spell by New Zealand's short-ball king Neil Wagner and three late wickets to Trent Boult saw Bangladesh all out for 211 in the rain-shortened second Test in Wellington on Sunday.

Tamim, who scored 126 and 74 in the first Test loss in Hamilton, brought up his 27th half century with a single off fast-medium bowler Matt Henry, who had replaced legspinner Todd Astle.

Williamson picked up the injury when he fell awkwardly trying to stop a ball at gully during the Bangladesh innings.

The victory was New Zealand's fifth test series win in succession and all the more remarkable with the entire first two days of play washed out, while an hour's play was also lost at the end of the third day due to rain and poor light.

New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson, who suffered a shoulder injury on the third day of the ongoing second Test against Bangladesh was taken for scans on Monday.

New Zealand were 275 for 3 midway between lunch and tea on the fourth day to lead Bangladesh by 64 on the first innings. Taking risks, he was twice dropped on 20 in the same over from Ebadot Hossain, first at cover by captain Mahmudullah, then at slip by Shadman Islam. When Taylor was out for 200, New Zealand was 421-5 and already 210 runs ahead.

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.

"I think we all saw how green it was and we wanted to be positive because we knew there was probably going to be a ball with your name on it", Taylor said.

"It's very minor but we're hopeful he will recover quickly", said coach Gary Stead, after the Black Caps' innings and 12 run win in the second test in Wellington.

Taylor and Henry Nicholls kept the runs flowing with a 216-run stand, during which both batsmen surpassed their hundreds, before Nicholls was clean bowled by Taijul for 107, which came off 129 deliveries and included nine boundaries. Tamim hit the first ball for four; Boult smiled ruefully, then produced an nearly unplayable delivery which swung, then seamed back to bowl Iqbal.
