Ross Taylor celebrated a record-equalling 17th Test century for New Zealand to leave West Indies fighting to avoid a series whitewash.

Ambris put himself in history for the wrong reasons during the tourists' first innings against New Zealand in Wellington, becoming the first batsman in the history of Test cricket to be out due to a hit wicket for a golden duck on a Test debut. At the Seddon Park, Ambris did get off the mark but a short ball from paceman Trent Boult saw Ambris rock back on his back foot in an attempt to manoeuvre the ball on the leg side.

Williamson dealt in boundaries and struck six of it to complete a 54-ball half-century and New Zealand went into lunch with a score of 96 for two, stretching their lead to 248 runs.

Taylor has brought up his 17 test century on day three of the second test against the West Indies in Hamilton finishing 107 not out as New Zealand declared their second innings at 291 for eight, setting the Windies 443 to win.

New Zealand are looking to wrap up a 2-0 sweep of the two-test series after an innings victory at the Basin Reserve last week.

The hosts did not need to take all 10 wickets after Sunil Ambris retired hurt when a short Neil Wagner delivery broke his arm, as the visitors resumed on 30-2 and were never really able to establish a solid partnership throughout the day.

It was a matter of when and not if for New Zealand, who claimed the prized scalp of opener and stand-in captain Kraigg Brathwaite for 20 early on Tuesday.

Wicketkeeper Tom Blundell managed to score 28 before he was clean bowled by Shannon Gabriel.

West Indies batsman Sunil Ambris continued his unlucky introduction to worldwide cricket on Tuesday. "But be just a little reminder now and then", he said.

Taylor remained unbeaten and West Indies were set a target of 444 in their final innings.

Brathwaite's was an outstanding innings which helped the Windies recover from the loss of Kieran Powell in the first over of their innings and Shimron Hetmyer (28) at 46-2.
