Illness delays Williamson's world cup departure

5:48 pm on 8 February 2011

The New Zealand cricketers fly out for the World Cup on the sub continent this evening, but batsman Kane Williamson won't be with them.

A chest infection has delayed Williamson's departure and he's expected to join the side in India in a couple of days.

The Black Caps have two warm up matches against Ireland and India before their opening match of the tournament against Kenya on Sunday week.
