On Thursday, New Zealand all-rounder cricketer Grant Elliott is doubtful for the 2nd One Day International (ODI) against Sri Lanka.

On Wednesday Grant Elliott was not present at training at the Seddon Park, continuously he was facing some family health problem. Stuff.co.nz reported that a New Zealand cricket spokesperson said Grant Elliott could play, but that would not be known until Thursday morning

Grant Elliott left South Africa in 2001 looking for new opportunities and he got one when he was selected in the 13 man squad. He got the chance to enter the test squad when Jacob Oram faced some injury. He impressed all the spectators with his temperament. He born in Johannesburg. A dense and correct batsman, and a swing bowler with a steady run-up which is another reason behind of his selection.

If Grant Elliot is ruled out from the match, New Zealand could take all-rounders Daniel Vettori and Nathan McCullum. If he does play, he has to bat at fifth position in the preplanned batting lineup. New Zealand lead the 7 match One Day International (ODI) series 1-0 after winning the 1st match.
