Only the threat of rain and a flattening pitch loomed as possible barricades for NZ, who closed Day Three on 171 for one with nine wickets in hand. Tom Latham was on 72 with master batsman Williamson on 48.
NZ ramped up their dominance over Sri Lanka, removing their last six wickets on Saturday to have the tourists all out for 294, 137 runs in arrears.
