Kolkata Sep 29 (IANS) New Zealand batsman Kane Williamson on Thursday missed training because of illness, teammate Tom Latham said before their second Test against India at the Eden Gardens starting on Friday.

"Kane is a little bit crook today so he won't be training," the Kiwi opening batsman told media persons here.

Latham though assured there is nothing to worry about.

"He's just down with a bug. It's nothing too major. He's just resting so as to be fit by tomorrow."

Williamson, the second ranked Test batsman, is the top player of the visiting team and him missing the match would be detrimental for the already depleted side.

The visitors have three players -- Tim Southee, James Neesham and Mark Craig -- on the mending table.
