New Zealand’s captain Kane Williamson will miss his team’s 50-over World Cup opener against England on October 5th.

Williamson is currently still recovering from a knee injury, and has not played since tearing cruciate ligaments at the Indian Premier League in April.

New Zealand cricket says Williamson will play as a batter in a warm-up game against Pakistan on Friday.

He will then look to bat and field in a final warm-up against South Africa.

Coach Gary Stead said the priority was ensuring Williamson had time to progress his return to match fitness.
