Mehedi Hasan Miraz must hate NZ. Averaging 94 over there and continually gets pumped. On that note he averages 20 in Bangladesh and 54 away from home.
Never seen him bowl before today but he's serving up pies. Long way to go on surfaces that dont offer him assistance

Latham's doing pretty well this season (not the best opposition though). Wonder how many times an opener has scored hundreds in 3 successive test matches?
Could be wrong but I think Boony scored 3 in the India series of 91-92 but don’t know if he’d moved to 3 by then?

I'd missed that New Zealand are number two in the rankings now, with South Africa's implosion against Sri Lanka having pushed them down to number three.

They've never been that high before!

By New Zealand opener standards he's very good, but aside from a really good early series against Pakistan everything else has come against pretty weak bowling. I'd still have guys like Karunaratne, Elgar and Markram ahead of him right now though obviously the South Africans have had a poor run recently.

He's looked genuinely unplayable in a fair few matches in Bangladesh.
Yeah he's got a good record. I'm sure its just part of a steep learning curve for him. Doesnt help when campaigner boards like CA don't honour hosting obligations.

Century number 20 for Williamson. The first Kiwi to ever get to 20 centuries (he was already in the overall lead ahead of Crowe and Taylor anyway).

New Zealand's highest ever score in Tests now; surpassing the 690 they scored against Pakistan in 2014, which in turn had surpassed the 680 they scored against India in early 2014.

And there's the 700 up.

This leaves, curiously enough, South Africa as the last major Test playing nation to have never reached 700 (SA's highest is 682).

Why do NZ play so many tests at home vs WI,SL and BAN? 16 in the last six years (including the next two).
Given that Australia, England, South Africa and India decline to really tour there with much regularity (for Tests at least), they're not really left with many other teams to play.

I mean, we are on their door step and we have played a grand total of four Tests there since the end of our 2004-05 series there.
