New Zealand captain Kane Williamson has been ruled out of the second test against India in Kolkata with a viral illness.

Ross Taylor will return to captain the side in his absence, with Henry Nicholls the likely candidate to bat at No.3.

Williamson is suffering a fever and is described as "dehydrated". He has been rushed into quarantine. In contrast, Jeetan Patel may have had a flight cancelled from England but is expected to gain his 20th cap and first since January 2013.
