Williamson may go to India for the World Cup despite being injured

Even though he isn’t entirely well, Kane Williamson, the captain of New Zealand, may travel with the team to India for the 50-over world cup later in the year. On Wednesday, head coach Gary Stead acknowledged that they would ‘definitely’ attempt to use Williamson in a mentor-type capacity if he remained out of the lineup.

Williamson is battling time to be ready for the World Cup after injuring his right ACL while attempting to take a catch during Gujarat Titans‘ opening game of the current Indian Premier League. Williamson has underwent surgery.

Before the five-match series against Pakistan, Stead observed, “It’s still far too early to know.” “From what we know so far, the surgery that he had was successful. He is so very, very early in his rehabilitation regimen.

Williamson might join the team again for the title contest

Williamson might perhaps return to the team for the championship game, which will be played from October 5 to November 19, but the odds aren’t in Williamson’s favour.

He is wearing a brace, so it is clear that it is not yet extremely weight-bearing. Kane’s availability is still uncertain in our opinion, but we don’t want to rule out someone of his calibre and the traits he offers to this group too quickly in case there is still a chance.
