West Indies off spinner Sunil Narine took the crucial wicket of Kane Williamson to put New Zealand under pressure at the end of the second day of the third Test in Hamilton.

Williamson and Ross Taylor had appeared poised to close the second day ahead of a further assault on the visitors' first innings total of 367 all out.

But Narine had other ideas and trapped Williamson in front for 58. A review of the decision proved that the ball would have clipped leg stump, and the 23-year-old exited the crease for the bowler's 17th Test wicket.

Brendon McCullum stepped into the breach (11 not out) as New Zealand finished the day at 156 for three, 211 runs behind the Windies.

Earlier in the day, Shivnarine Chanderpaul reached his 29th Test century, as he finished 122 not out for the visitors.

Chanderpaul is now the sixth-highest Test-scoring batsman on 11,199 runs, as West Indies finished off their innings with 78 runs on the second day to add to their overnight tally of 289-6 before their eventual dismissal.

Darren Sammy produced two excellent catches off both Hamish Rutherford (10) and Peter Fulton (11), as New Zealand got their innings off to a faltering start.

But it was Narine who caused the most problems for Williamson and Taylor, before the New Zealand pair changed tactics by using single runs to ensure a regular switch between Narine and Veerasammy Permaul.

However, Williamson would soon fail to bring McCullum to the crease before the close of play.

New Zealand bowling coach Shane Bond is now expecting the third day to be a vital one for the hosts, as they aim to maintain their 1-0 lead in the series, per Radio Sport (via Reuters):

We are probably behind the eight ball a little bit having to bat last on this wicket and the wicket taking some turn...

There was a lot made of Sunil Narine coming back into the team and the variation he offers and I think the guys have found it challenging.

For the rest of the batsmen tomorrow it's about getting set, getting in, getting a good look at him and as Ross showed you can score runs against him.
