Vettori in doubt for Sri Lankan tour

11:44 am on 5 October 2012

The former New Zealand cricket captain Dan Vettori says he's a doubtful starter for next month's tour of Sri Lanka following a recurrence of his Achilles problem during the World Twenty20.

The 33-year-old saw a specialist on Friday but the allrounder says he's not confident of making the Sri Lankan tour.

New Zealand are scheduled to play two Tests, five ODIs and a T20 in Sri Lanka.

Vettori says he expects to be back for New Zealand's tour of South Africa that starts with a Twenty20 in Durban on December 21st.
