njured local hero stays upbeat

A freak wrist injury will keep local hero Kane Williamson out of today's second ODI between the Black Caps and South Africa at Mount Maunganui's Bay Oval.

The ligament injury suffered during the recent Champions League in India is particularly disappointing for the Tauranga born-and-bred batsman, who misses both games played on his home ground.

"There are all those natural disappointments but it is never nice being injured and missing games and the opportunity to play for your country," Williamson said. "It is a little bit frustrating but it is important to use the time off to benefit you in some ways with potentially a lot of cricket coming up.
