There has been a big blow for the team in the second match of the series as captain Kane Williamson has once again got injured.

When Kane Williamson was batting in the second T20 match held last Sunday, he suffered pain in his knee, due to which he had to retire. Williamson has returned home after the match and is being scanned.
Just some time ago, Kane Williamson had returned from knee surgery, where he was having trouble with his hamstring. This is causing them a lot of trouble. The matter of concern is the severity of Kane Williamson's injury because he played only a few matches in the ODI World Cup due to injury.
This will also affect IPL. Now that he has made a comeback, he has again been out in the middle of the series. They will have to move ahead with Plan B. It's not just New Zealand; Even the Gujarat Titans team will have to face challenges in the IPL. It is noteworthy that Kane Williamson was injured in the very first match of the last IPL, due to which he had to undergo knee surgery.
If we talk about the Pakistan-New Zealand series, then New Zealand is currently leading 2-0 in this series. Pakistan is playing under the captaincy of its new captain Shaheen Shah Afridi. In preparation for the T20 World Cup, Pakistan has made some changes and broken the opening partnership of Babar-Rizwan.
