Associated Press logo Associated Press 6/08/2016

Captain Kane Williamson blasted a century Sunday to put New Zealand in a strong position at lunch on day two of the second Test against Zimbabwe.

New Zealand reached 4-436 after finishing on 2-329 at stumps on day one.

The tourists' first-day charge was led by opener Tom Latham, whose own century of 136 was the bedrock of the innings.

Williamson finally departed in the morning session of the second day on 113, caught by Craig Ervine off the bowling of seamer Michael Chinouya.

The other wicket to fall was Henry Nicholls, who was trapped lbw by Zimbabwe captain and skipper Graeme Cremer.

Zimbabwe trail the two-match Test series 1-0 after suffering a heavy innings and 117-run defeat in the first game at the same venue.
