KIWIS STRIKE BACK
NEW ZEALAND’S Kane Williamson praised Ross Taylor’s unbeaten double century yesterday, and thinks all three results are back on the table after the tourists quelled Australia’s dominance on the third day at the WACA. Taylor’s 235 not out was the second double ton of the match after David Warner’s 253, and Williamson, who himself managed 166 runs, said: ‘What an outstanding knock from Rosco, it was certainly one of his better ones. It would have been nice to stick around with Ross, who was knackered at the end of the day. It’s looking like the three results are still open which makes it an exciting game.’ Taylor’s knock — the highest ever score against Australia at the WACA — was all the more impressive given the pace at which Mitchell Starc was operating. The Australia seamer sent down an outswinging yorker clocked at 99.7mph — the fastest ever delivery in a Test match. In Bangalore, play was abandoned without a ball bowled due to persistent rain on day two of India’s second Test against South Africa.
