Babar Azam, the all-format captain of Pakistan, wished Kane Williamson of New Zealand a rapid recovery from his injury suffered during the Indian Premier League. (IPL).
New Zealand’s captain suffered a knee injury during the current IPL, which would likely prevent their ace batter from competing in the one-day World Cup later this year.
“Bound back stronger. In the tweet, Kane Williamson, who pictured cuddling Babar who appears hugging Babar in the tweet, should get well soon.
Williamson will require surgery for his damaged right knee, the New Zealand Cricket Board reports, after scans revealed that he had torn his anterior cruciate ligament while playing for the Gujarat Titans in the IPL.
Williamson is now unlikely to be fit and available for selection at this year’s ICC ODI Cricket World Cup in India, according to the typical rehabilitation timetables, it added.
Williamson thanked both the Gujarat Titans and New Zealand Cricket in a statement for the support they had given him in the wake of his injury.
Naturally, getting such an accident is disheartening, but right now, he stated, “My focus is on having the surgery and starting rehab.”
It will take some time, but I’ll work as hard as I can to return to the field as soon as I can. Williamson was dedicated to assisting the team in every way he could even though winning the World Cup suddenly seemed unreal.
Within the next three weeks, the NZ captain is most likely to undergo knee surgery. Williamson injured his knee when trying to make a catch in the IPL opener last Friday, and he had to be carried off the field by two physiotherapists.
One of cricket’s top batsmen is from New Zealand. He was essential to their fight to reach the 2019 World Cup final, where Williamson won player of the tournament.
New Zealand narrowly lost to England in the Super Over following a draw in the championship match on a boundary countback.
Williamson is still in charge of the ODI and T20 teams despite having stepped down from his role as New Zealand’s Test captain in December.
