New Zealand score record 690 runs against Bangladesh

New Zealand posted their highest ever innings total Saturday when they passed 690 on day three of the first Test against Bangladesh in Hamilton on Saturday.

A colossal six from Colin de Grandhomme took them to 695 for six.

Kane Williamson was on 192 with de Grandhomme on 64 as New Zealand extended their lead to 461.

Williamson passed 6,000 career Test runs in the course of the innings, which also featured centuries by Tom Latham and Jeet Raval.

New Zealand’s previous highest innings of 690 was against Pakistan in 2014, when Williamson contributed 192.

The world innings record is held by Sri Lanka, who scored 952 for six declared against India in 1997.
