Hamilton - New Zealand's Cricket World Cup squad might be forced to change its lineup for its final pool match this week after several players came down with a stomach illness on Monday.

Coach Mike Hesson did not say which players were sick or confirm the nature of the illness, but said he hoped they would recover in time to play in New Zealand's final pool match against Bangladesh in Hamilton on Friday.

Hesson also said fast bowler Adam Milne suffered a slight shoulder injury against Afghanistan but is thought likely to play against Bangladesh.
