Melbourne, Mar 24 (ANI): New Zealand all rounder Kane Williamson (19) is all set to make his debut against Australia in the second Test in Hamilton.

Black Caps coach Mark Greatbatch said the all-rounder had been a stand out this season in domestic cricket and deserved an opportunity to be involved at a higher level.

Williamson is the only change to the team, which lost to Australia by 10 wickets in Wellington, The Sydney Morning Herald reports.

"Kane is an exciting young player and has scored a lot of runs in our domestic competition. This is a good chance for him to be involved in the Black Caps environment. Along with Mathew Sinclair, he gives us various options and balances in the side," Greatbatch said.

Mathew Sinclair also returns to the 13-man squad for the second test, which begins on Saturday.

The squad is: Daniel Vettori (Capt), Brent Arnel, Martin Guptill, Peter Ingram, Brendon McCullum, Tim McIntosh, Chris Martin, Jeetan Patel, Mathew Sinclair, Tim Southee, Ross Taylor, BJ Watling, Kane Williamson. (ANI)
