    Kane Williamson's spin bowling inquisition has been delayed... for now

    Kane Williamson's spin bowling inquisition has been delayed... for now


    The Black Caps captain was cited by match officials as requiring testing to check the legality of his elbow extension, after bowling three overs in the first test against Sri Lanka last month.

    However, New Zealand Cricket high performance boss Bryan Stronach says they've had other objectives for the skipper after a busy winter.

    The All Blacks are keeping one eye on a dire weather forecast for Saturday's Rugby World Cup opener against South Africa in Yokohama.

    It's expected to rain for most of the week including game day with more than 200 millimetres expected.

    But first five Beauden Barrett says if that's the case they can't go completely into their shell.

    The Breakers finally have their full roster at practice as they prepare for the Australian NBL basketball pre-season blitz.

    The Tall Blacks contingent has returned from the World Cup in China and new head coach Dan Shamir is relieved.
