New Zealand are one of the two unbeaten teams - along with India - in the ICC World Cup and have almost assured themselves a place in the last four stage after their thrilling five-run win over West Indies last weekend. There is a cause of concern for the Black Caps though because their skipper Kane Williamson is dangerously close to copping a one-game ban if the team fails to maintain an acceptable over-rate in the game against Pakistan at Edgbaston on Wednesday (June 26). Coach Gary Stead though brushed aside the transgression as one-off due to the roller-coaster nature of the content against the West Indies. Williamson was fined about $800, 20 percent of his match fee of about $4,000, by match referee David Boon for the Black Caps being one over short of their stipulated target in Manchester.
