ENG vs NZ: Ken Williamson Out Of Second Test Against England
The huge announcement came before England’s second Test against New Zealand (ENG vs NZ), which will be held in Nottingham. This is a major setback for New Zealand (NZ).
Corona has ruled out New Zealand captain Kane Williamson for the second Test. Kane Williamson, who has been struggling recently, has tested positive.
Williamson has begun a five-day quarantine, according to coach Gary Steed. Fortunately, the corona test results for the rest of the crew have come back negative.
While this has lessened England’s dilemma, tensions in New Zealand remain high. New Zealand, on the other hand, has been severely impacted.
“On the eve of such a crucial match, Kane has been pushed out,” stated coach Gary Steed. Corona prevents him from playing with us.
This is heartbreaking. We’re all worried about him right now. Corona prevents him from playing with us. He may have been disappointed by this. He is likely to recover quickly, according to Stead.
After seeing certain symptoms, Williamson decided to test the corona. RTPR was tested on all of the other players. Every other player has been negative in the corona test.
Corona has forced Williamson to leave the team. This will be a significant setback for New Zealand’s aspirations of mounting a revival in the three-match Test series.
The world Test champions were defeated in their first match at Lord’s this week. It was the opening Test of the series, and England won by 277 runs thanks to Joe Root’s spectacular century in the fourth innings.
Williamson, who has struggled since the IPL, struggled in the opening Test match of the series, scoring just 17 runs in two innings.
Notably, the skipper was returning from a corner injury that had kept him out of Test cricket. Due to an injury, he was sidelined for a lengthy period.
Colin de Grandhom, the all-rounder who was forced out of the series after suffering a foot injury in the first Test, will also be missed by New Zealand. Mitchell Bracewell has taken his position.
