Nathan McCullum rejoins Black Caps squad

4:45 am on 20 February 2011

The spin bowler Nathan McCullum has returned from hospital to join the New Zealander cricketers' final practice session before their first one day World Cup match against Kenya.

However the team's management isn't sure if he play the Group A match after being taken to hospital on Thursday with a high fever.

Skipper Dan Vettori sounded wary of rushing the off-spinner into sharing the slow bowling burden.

But he says McCullum's feeling a lot better and a final decision might be made at the last minute .

Vettori says he's reasonably confident McCullum can play and the Black Caps will definitely will play two spinners against Kenya.
