Kane Williamson, the New Zealand captain, is expected to miss two months of cricket owing to an elbow injury. Williamson was ruled out of the New Zealand team’s 372-run defeat to India in the second Test. Williamson is unlikely to undergo surgery, according to BlackCaps head coach Gary Stead. “Kane is doing fine. It had been roughly eight or nine weeks since the World Test Championship final and before the IPL and T20 World Cup. I’m guessing it’ll be around that time frame once more. At this point, we’re trying not to put any deadlines on it”, Stead was reported by stuff.co.nz as stating.

“Surgery is improbable, in my opinion. The only thing that surgery would accomplish is to ensure that rehab is completed. We can choose not to cut a tendon if we don’t have to. Don’t get me wrong: Kane is working hard. He adores playing for New Zealand and despises missing any sport, let alone test cricket, for the country “, he added. New Zealand will play two tests against Bangladesh before heading to Australia for three one-day internationals and a Twenty20 match from January 30 to February 8. After winning the second Test match of the two-match Test series against Tom Latham’s New Zealand National Cricket Team by 372 runs on Monday, December 6 at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai, India has retained third place in the ICC World Test Championship (WTC) 2021-23 points table.

In the history of Test cricket, this was India’s largest-ever run victory. In addition, India has won the two-match Test series 1-0, with the first match between the teams ending in a draw at Green Park in Kanpur.
