New Zealand Skipper Kane Williamson would end up missing matches during the T20 World Cup due to Elbow Injury

Abu Dhabi. New Zealand head coach Gary Stead has revealed that captain Kane Williamson may miss some matches of the ICC T20 World Cup 2021 due to an elbow injury. England defeated New Zealand by 13 runs in the T20 World Cup warm-up match on Wednesday. Williamson was seen fielding in the match, but did not bat as a precaution. Stead said Kane Williamson’s elbow injury worsened after the first warm-up match. Williamson had scored 37 runs in 30 balls in that match, but New Zealand had to face defeat by three wickets.

Asked about the possibility of captain Kane Williamson being out for a few matches, Stead told “It’s a possibility. However, we are hopeful that he will be able to play if he gets the right rest and balance.” New Zealand have to play Pakistan on Tuesday, but the remaining four Super 12 matches will have to be played within seven days, in which there is little chance of rest.

Coach Gary Stead said, “Kane Williamson is one of the batsmen to beat the ball and he prepares in the same way, but sometimes it causes damage. We are trying to strike the right balance and don’t want to escalate the trouble.”
