November 26, 2012

COLOMBO: Ross Taylor hit a solid century as New Zealand recovered from early blows to post a healthy 223-2 on the opening day of the second and final Test against Sri Lanka on Sunday.

The tourists were struggling at 14-2 in the fourth over before skipper Taylor (119 not out) and Kane Williamson (95 not out) propped up the innings with an unfinished 209-run stand for the third wicket.

Taylor completed his eighth Test hundred in the last session when he flicked seamer Shaminda Eranga to deep square-leg for two. Williamson provided valuable support and looked set to complete his third Test century when play was called off due to rain, with more than nine overs remaining in the day.
