Williamson running risk of a ban

After being fined part of their match fee for a slow over rate against West Indies on Saturday, New Zealand will be keen to keep things ticking along with skipper Kane Williamson facing a one-match ban.

Williamson was fined 20 percent of his match fee and the rest of the team 10 percent for a slow over rate in their five-run victory.

As captain, Williamson would face suspension if the side are fined again, with New Zealand set to play Pakistan, Australia and England in their final three group stage games.

Unbeaten New Zealand top the table and look good for a semifinal spot but with three tight matches ahead the side will be keen not to lose such their talisman for the run-in.

Williamson has scored back-to-back centuries, the 28-year-old holding together New Zealand’s chase against South Africa with 106 not out and then rescuing their innings with 148 against West Indies.
