New Zealand captain Daniel Vettori will find out the extent of the knee injury he suffered during his side's Cricket World Cup match against Pakistan following an appointment in Mumbai.

Left-arm spinner Vettori's right knee dug into the ground while fielding during the game, following which he was unable to play any further part in the game.

New Zealand Cricket (NZC) confirmed that treatment was administered at the ground and the knee was rested overnight. His knee will now be looked at in Mumbai.

"The extent of the injury or best course of action will not be known until after the review process and an update will be sent when additional information comes to hand," a statement from NZC clarified.

There was some good news for New Zealand, however, as batsman Jesse Ryder, who missed the game with Pakistan with a stomach bug, is recovering well and is expected to be fit to play against Canada on Sunday (13th March).

New Zealand won the game against Pakistan by 110 runs with stand-in captain Ross Taylor marking his birthday with a century.
