“Cut it, I’ve thought about that a few times”

New Zealand captain Kane Williamson has expressed his disappointment over an elbow injury that forced him to miss the series of home tests with South Africa. The elegant right-hander said he had at one point thought about cutting the left arm that was hindering his international return.

Although Williamson is said to have progressed well, he has missed a lot of cricket since the 2021 T20 World Cup. The 31-year-old missed the T20 series in India followed by a lone test.

Tom Latham, who will lead the match against South Africa, also starts the match against Bangladesh due to the captain’s frequent absence.

Williamson admits it was an uncomfortable time, as his injury was a special one. However, the former Test’s number one athlete said he is working with the medical team to resolve the issue.

“Cut it off… I’ve thought about that a few times. Everyone seems to have a different story with this type of injury, so I certainly was hopeful. But it wasn’t, and that’s it. a hard pill to swallow, to be honest it’s been tough to manage, but I’m getting the support of the paramedics and New Zealand Cricket around the big picture But as a bridge It’s not always easy,” he said, like quote by Stuff.co.nz.

Black Caps head coach Gary Stead discussed the star smasher’s injury, and remains confident of the player’s ability to make a full recovery. The right arm is said to be targeting a return in the white ball series against the Netherlands, followed by IPL 2022 in India.

“I’m just really curious about my endpoint” – Kane Williamson

The Tauranga-born player is still desperate to see the end of his long-standing injury, having seen people overcome it. In this regard, he added:

“I’ve heard a number of stories about people who got through it, and those stories were certainly encouraging to begin with. I’m really curious about my end point. But everyone agreed that it would. there’s a story, but it’s just about taking the time and effort to essentially see the back of it.”

The New Zealand captain is among three players retained by Sunrisers Hyderabad ahead of the IPL 2022 major auction, Abdul Samad and Umran Malik being the rest.
