Wellington:

Batsman Kane Williamson will miss New Zealand's second one-day cricket international against Sri Lanka on Thursday while recovering from a shoulder injury.

Williamson aggravated the injury while fielding during New Zealand's three-wicket win in the first match of a seven-match ODI series in Christchurch on Sunday.

Coach Mike Hesson said the No. 3 batsman will leave the New Zealand squad for at least a week to work on his recovery. Hesson said, "Kane is obviously a very important player for us and we need to give his shoulder the time to recover fully."

Ross Taylor is expected to rejoin the New Zealand team for the second ODI at Hamilton after being rested for the first match.
