Taylor clouted Taijul Islam for six over the long-on boundary to bring up his century which took him past his mentor, the late Martin Crowe, to become New Zealand's second most prolific century-maker with 18, two behind Kane Williamson.

Despite the green pitch, Tamim and Shadman Islam got Bangladesh off to a bright start as Trent Boult (3-38) and Tim Southee (1-52) struggled.

In absence of premier performers like Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim, Bangladesh fated back to back innings defeats against New Zealand in the first two matches of the series.

This win by the Kiwis can be considered more impressive considering the fact that rain washed out the first two days of play.

New Zealand short-ball maestro Neil Wagner believed a result in the rain-affected second Test against Bangladesh was still "definitely possible" after New Zealand trailed by 173 at stumps on day three in Wellington on Sunday.

He wasn't on the field at the end, resting because of a shoulder injury while wicketkeeper B.J. Watling also had to be replaced by a substitute fielder on the final day.

Williamson had injured his shoulder while fielding on day three of the ongoing second Test against Bangladesh.

"If we don't lose any wicket or just one wicket in the opening session then there is a chance". A fantastic double century from Ross (Taylor) and some other good contributions put us in that position. "We didn't see it unfolding as it did".

Then it becomes slightly tricky for Stead and New Zealand Cricket.

Wagner finished with figures of 5/45 - all of his wickets came on the final day. Taylor, dropped twice on 20, went on to his third double century in a 216-run partnership with Henry Nicholls, who made 107.

New Zealand's captain is an unlikely starter in the third cricket test against Bangladesh in Christchurch on Saturday, but the nature of his grade one pectoral muscle tear means they're yet to rule him out.

The home team scored fast enough to advance the game and allow itself time to bowl out Bangladesh.

In a telling 13-ball spell either side of lunch, Wagner first removed Mominul Haque (15) and Mohammad Mithun (three) before the break and soon after the resumption took the key wicket of Tamim, who top-edged an attempted pull shot.

"Very disappointing", Mahmudullah said.
