New Zealand cricket captain Stephen Fleming has recovered sufficiently from illness to be cleared to rejoin the Black Caps in Australia.

Fleming, who has been suffering from a mystery illness contracted in Bangladesh last month, will arrive in Sydney Saturday afternoon before the two-Test trans-Tasman series.

Team officials expect the tall left-handed batsman to be fit for the first Test against Australia, starting in Brisbane on Thursday.

All-rounder Scott Styris has stood in Fleming's place in the current tour match against NSW at the SCG.
