Captain Kane Williamson has been passed fit to lead New Zealand in the first Test against England at Mount Maunganui.

Williamson missed New Zealand’s five-match Twenty20 series against England with a hip injury and has played only one innings in the past three months, making 26 for Northern Districts in a domestic first-class match.

Selector Gavin Larsen was confident enough in Williamson’s fitness to name him Friday at the head of a 15-man squad for the first match of a two-Test series, starting November 21 in New Zealand.

“Kane’s made good progress over the past fortnight and we’re delighted to welcome back a player of his class and experience,“ Larsen said.
