India vs New Zealand: Kane Williamson has been ruled out of the second and final Test against India. At the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Due to a recurring elbow injury. Tom Latham also made contributions of half-centuries. In Mumbai, the tourists will lead both innings of the Kanpur Test. The start of the second Test was then postponed due to unseasonal rain in the city. Williamson’s injury improved during the first Test, according to Gary Stead. Because the condition did not improve substantially after the drew, Williamson, will not play in the second match due to injury. Kane Williamson had previously stated that his left-elbow injury will keep him out for the majority of the year in 2021. He’d been in control of all of this throughout.
“While we’ve been able to manage the injury through the year and the T20 World Cup, the shift to Test cricket and the increased batting loading has re-aggravated his elbow. Ultimately the injury is still not right and while he got through the Kanpur Test, it was clear playing in the second Test wasn’t an option,” Kane Williamson said.
India vs New Zealand: “We all know how much he loves playing and leading this team, particularly in Test cricket, so it’s a very difficult decision to sit out. It’s been a challenging year for Kane trying to manage his elbow and it’s important we now formulate a good plan with him to ensure the injury does not continue to plague him. He will likely require a sustained period of rest followed by rehabilitation, strengthening, and gradual batting loading,” Williamson added.
India vs New Zealand: Lastly, India is battling injury issues of its own. Out-of-form vice-captain Rahane, Ishant Sharma, and Jadeja has been ruled out. In the Mumbai Test against New Zealand. Moreover, Ajinkya Rahane will miss the series decider. Due to a minor left hamstring strain that he suffered during the first Test. And then Ishant dislocated his left little finger on the last day of the Kanpur Test.
