NZ captain Kane Williamson taken to hospital

Kane Williamson, captain of New Zealand was injured during the second Test between New Zealand vs Bangladesh at the Basin Reserve in Wellington following which he had to be taken to the hospital on Monday.

A team spokesman while talking about this incident described it as a “precautionary” measure as he was taken to the hospital for scans on his left shoulder. During Bangladesh’s first innings on Sunday, he suffered a left shoulder injury while diving in the field.

However, he still came out to bat but looked in discomfort and twice needed the attention of the medical staff when he batted. Despite carrying an injury, he scored his 30th Test half-century before being dismissed for 74 by spinner Taijul Islam.

Despite the discomfort, he made 74 before he was dismissed. New Zealand were in no mood to settle for a draw despite having the first two days washed out as they pushed to wrap up the three-match series with a game to spare, having comprehensively won the first Test.

The first two days of the Test were washed out but fine weather is forecast for the remainder of the match.
