Williamson to miss T20 tri-series clash against England?

Williamson to miss T20 tri-series clash against England?

'I'm looking forward to taking a full part in training and hope I should be fit for tomorrow'.

The remainder of the T20I squad will head to New Zealand on Tuesday, but Warner, who was on Monday crowned as Australia's ODI Player of the Year, is flying home to Sydney for a couple of days. If Williamson isn't fit, Tim Southee is likely to lead the side, like in the first Twenty20 worldwide against Pakistan earlier in the season, when a side strain had ruled Williamson out.

"100ish... just got a few niggles, a bit of a back niggling so hopefully it's settled by tomorrow night", said Williamson.

New Zealand captain Kane Williamson could be sidelined for his side's T20 tri-series fixture against England in Wellington on Tuesday due to a back injury.

'We want to get on the board in the tri-series and it's very important we play good cricket.

England have lost both their clashes against Australia and must beat the Black Caps in the remaining two games to progress to the final.

"T20, if we look at it straight off the bat, it is fickle".

She served two terms until 2018, when she handed over to democratically-elected president George Weah, a former global footballer. The $5 million Mo Ibrahim prize for African Leadership has been awarded to Ellen Johnson Sirleaf , former president of Liberia .

"Playing aggressive cricket, an aggressive brand and all that, that's not just what we're about".

Williamson's opposite number, Eoin Morgan, also faces an uncertainty around his participation.

'It's a big opportunity for us and for England, ' he said. He's a leader, he's our captain and he has been for the past three years.

Morgan did not play for England in their seven-wicket loss to Australia on Saturday and Jos Buttler subsequently took over as captain.

"So we'll give him a couple of days off and get him to New Zealand the day before the game".

"It will just give him a couple of days at home really", Lehmann said. New Zealand, too, might have to do away with their regular skipper for the tie against England.
