Will has been waiting in the wings for a while now and he’ll get a great opportunity batting at number three in a settled line-up.”There was better news about wicketkeeper BJ Watling, who passed a fitness Test on a hamstring strain on Friday and will play at Hagley Oval.Pace bowler Tim Southee will captain the side for the first time in Williamson’s absence.For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
