Kane Williamson to join NZ touring squad

Kane Williamson will join up with New Zealand’s squad in England in the coming days after the captain and his wife Sarah Raheem welcomed their second child into the world.

Williamson posted a picture of the new baby boy with mum and daughter Maggie on social media, writing: “Welcome to the whanau little man!”

He left the Indian Premier League early to return home for the birth and will now join the Black Caps in England in the lead-up to the first Test at Lord’s on June 2.

Batsman Devon Conway and seamer Tim Southee have already linked up with the squad after their IPL teams failed to make the playoffs.

Williamson, fast bowler Neil Wagner and batsman Daryl Mitchell are expected to arrive on Wednesday, on the eve of the second tour match against a Counties XI team in Essex.
