New Zealand's captain Kane Williamson managed to soldier on after being struck in the head by a nasty bouncer by England's bowler Liam Plunkett, in their Champions Trophy ODI match in Cardiff this morning.

During the 15th over Williamson ducked into a short delivery by Plunkett, with the ball striking the New Zealand skipper square on his helmet with a sickening thud.

Williamson took his time to compose himself after the incident and was seen by physiotherapists.

He carried on batting and went on to score 87 runs off 98 balls.

England won the match by 87 runs, securing themselves a spot in Champions Trophy semi-finals.
