Williamson on ice


Cricket: New Zealand captain Kane Williamson was yesterday ruled out of the second test against England which began at Edgbaston overnight. The world’s No 1 batsman has been managing a tendon injury in his left elbow for several months and, with the world championship final against India being the squad’s priority, it was decided he would not be risked this week. Tom Latham lead the side in his absence, with everything to play for after a rain-affected draw at Lord’s. The fixture will be his third time captaining the Black Caps in tests. Will Young has come into the side in Williamson’s place, having made two centuries in the early part of the season as Durham’s overseas professional. ● For coverage of Day One overnight, check online at
