New Zealand vs West Indies: Dad-To-Be Kane Williamson Pulls Out Of Windies Test
New Zealand captain Kane Williamson on Thursday pulled out of the second Test against the West Indies in Wellington as he awaits the imminent arrival of his first child.
Williamson had flown home to Tauranga, 500 kilometers from Wellington, to be with his wife Sarah on the even of the match. After confirming his availability he flew back to Wellington where, after further discussions with Stead, he agreed it would be best if he returned to be with his wife.
"It's a decision that we've come to around the best interests for him and for Sarah, and also for our team," Stead said.
