James Franklin, the New Zealand seamer, has targeted the tour of England in May to make his return to international cricket after being sidelined for several months with a knee injury. Franklin, who underwent surgery in November, said he would take things step by step, suggesting that he may not bowl straight away when returning to his state side Wellington.

"I hope to play as a batsman in March," Franklin told the Dominion Post. "That's a little goal I've set myself. First of all I'll trial it at club level and then if it goes well I'll stick my hand up for Wellington."
