 Kane Williamson and BJ Watling of New Zealand leave the field for tea during Day 4

Wellington, Jan 6: New Zealand batsmen Kane Williamson and B.J. Watling shared a world record sixth-wicket partnership of 365 runs as the hosts dominated Sri Lanka by posting 524 for five declared on day four of the second Test here Tuesday.

The declaration meant Sri Lanka needed 390 runs in 107 overs to win at Wellington's Basin Reserve and square the two-match series.

Williamson hit an unbeaten 242, his maiden Test double century while Watling made 142 not out, his fourth Test hundred.

The duo broke the 352-run record set by Watling and skipper Brendon McCullum against India last year.
