New Zealand vs Sri Lanka, 2nd Test, Day 3 Highlights: New Zealand continued their dominance over Sri Lanka in the second Test on Sunday, enforcing a follow-on and setting up the likelihood of a series clean sweep with two days to play at the Basin Reserve in Wellington. The tourists reached 113-2 in their second innings at stumps on day three but still trailed by 303 runs at Wellington’s Basin Reserve. Sri Lanka’s tail succumbed rapidly in the second session as the last six wickets tumbled for 50 runs in the space of 15.1 overs. On Saturday, aggressive double centuries for Kane Williamson and Henry Nicholls powered New Zealand’s dominance. The Black Caps declared their first innings at an imposing 580 for 4 before reducing Sri Lanka to 26 for 2 at stumps on day two, leaving the tourists with a very slim prospect of squaring the two-match series. (SCORECARD)
