Williamson Passed Fit for 1st England Test

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.
