New Zealand's Nicholls passed fit for World Cup final
New Zealand batsman Henry Nicholls has been passed fit to face England in the Cricket World Cup final at Lord's on Sunday.
Nicholls sustained a hamstring injury in the thrilling win over India in the last four and did not field in the second half of that match at Old Trafford.
However, the Black Caps announced on Saturday that the left-hander had taken a full part in training and would be available for the decider against the tournament hosts.
"Henry Nicholls has trained fully and passed a fitness test to be available to play tomorrow's @ICC @cricketworldcup Final at the @HomeOfCricket," read a post on the team's Twitter page.
Nicholls' three outings at this World Cup have produced scores of 8, 0 and 28 as he, Martin Guptill and Colin Munro have all struggled for form atop the New Zealand order.
