Kane Williamson, the regular captain of the BLACKCAPS in white-ball cricket, will be part of the 15-man squad representing New Zealand in the upcoming ICC Cricket World Cup in India. This decision comes as Williamson continues his recovery journey from a knee injury sustained during the IPL in March.
BLACKCAPS coach Gary Stead expressed confidence in Williamson’s progress but mentioned that his selection doesn’t guarantee his availability for the first match. Stead praised Williamson’s dedication to rehabilitation and his cautious approach to returning to the game at the highest level. There is no fixed timeline for his return, and the coaching staff aims to provide him with ample time for a full recovery.
Williamson, who will be participating in his fourth One Day Cricket World Cup, emphasized his focus on gradual recovery goals rather than a specific return date. He remains committed to getting back on the field with the team.
The rest of the BLACKCAPS ICC Cricket World Cup Squad for India will be announced on September 11th at an event in Auckland, hosted at Papatoetoe High School, which happens to be Ish Sodhi’s old shcool.
