Kane Williamson ruled out of NZ-SA clash

Categories :

New Zealand will once again be without the services of regular captain Kane Williamson for their upcoming ODI World Cup 2023 clash against South Africa in Pune on Wednesday, November 1. The talismanic batter suffered a thumb fracture while being hit by a throw in the game against Bangladesh earlier in the ongoing ODI World Cup 2023. Notably, Williamson returned to the nets and batted for the last two days.

However, New Zealand Cricket (NZC) took to their social media to inform that he was not ready to feature in the game against the Proteas. His fitness will be monitored once again prior to the game against Pakistan on Saturday, November 4.

“Kane Williamson has been ruled out of Wednesday’s match against @ProteasMenCSA. Williamson has batted in the nets the last two days but has been ruled out of a return to match action tomorrow. He will be assessed again ahead of the side’s next match against @TheRealPCB. #CWC23” Blackcaps wrote on X.
