A nightwatchman is a lower-order batsman who comes in to bat higher up the order than usual near the end of the day's play. This batsman's job is to maintain most of the strike until the close of play (remaining in overnight, hence the name) and so protect other, more capable batsmen from being out cheaply in what may be a period of tiredness or in poor light.
