New Zealand vs Sri Lanka, 2nd Test Day 2 Highlights: Aggressive double centuries for Kane Williamson and Henry Nicholls powered New Zealand's dominance in the second Test against Sri Lanka in Wellington on Saturday. The Black Caps declared their first innings at an imposing 580-4 before reducing Sri Lanka to 26-2 at stumps on day two, leaving the tourists with a very slim prospect of squaring the two-match series. The in-form Williamson scored 215 and Nicholls posted a career-best 200 not out, with the pair's third-wicket stand of 363 virtually batting Sri Lanka out of the contest. (SCORECARD)

NZ vs SL Live
Welcome back. The Kiwi players are out in the middle.
There is nothing much to write about Sri Lanka as they were made to toil hard with the ball and in the field. They were absolutely tired as we saw some sloppy fielding later on and couple of catches dropped which proved to be a big mistake. Sri Lanka now have to bat a small phase and they will hope to get past without losing any wickets. Stay tuned...
Henry Nicholls was dropped twice, one when he was new to the crease and one in his 90s. He came with a luck and made the most of the opportunity. New Zealand dominated throughout with Devon Conway scoring a fifty but then came the humongous stand between Kane Williamson and Henry Nicholls of around 360.
Tim Southee was waiting for Henry Nicholls to reach his milestone as he declares the innings. The Wellington crowd has witnessed a special day as two local boys have scored double-centuries. Kane Williamson first and then Henry Nicholls followed him. New Zealand have ended with a mammoth score though.
