Williamson experiences an “undisplaced fracture” to his left thumb

Published:

The left thumb of New Zealand’s captain, Kane Williamson, has an “undisplaced fracture”. He attempted a quick single against Bangladesh on Friday, October 13 in Chennai, but was struck on the thumb by an uncoordinated throw. On Saturday, scans verified the fracture.

Williamson will stay in New Zealand to get selected for the team for the upcoming cricket clash on October 25 against England. And it’s not sure how much time it will take to recover. Previously, he had just recovered from an ACL injury and missed starting matches. Now, again, he will be missing a couple of games in the upcoming days of the Cricket World Cup month.

Williamson’s injuries are a hardship for New Zealand because he is a crucial player for them. He is a fantastic striker as well as a fantastic leader. New Zealand will strive for a quick recovery.

Notably, Tom Blundell has been invited to the team to perform in place of Kane. Blundell is known to be the best wicket taken for New Zealand, which has played only 18 one-day international matches. It would be more exciting to watch Williamson’s replacement in the upcoming cricket clash.
