Injury woes hit New Zealand and Australia amid crucial third T20I

New Zealand’s Devon Conway and Australia’s David Warner face a setback as they are sidelined from the upcoming third T20I clash scheduled for Sunday, 25th February.

Conway suffered a blow to his left thumb while keeping wickets during the second T20I encounter. A delivery from Adam Milne, clocking over 140kph, struck Conway’s thumb, forcing him to relinquish his wicket-keeping responsibilities to Finn Allen. Despite initial X-rays ruling out a fracture, Conway will return to Wellington for further evaluation by a hand specialist to determine the severity of the injury.


Meanwhile, David Warner’s absence adds to Australia’s injury concerns. The dynamic opener’s unavailability compounds the team’s challenges as they prepare for a crucial showdown against New Zealand. With both teams grappling with key personnel sidelined, the third T20I promises to be a battle of resilience and adaptability as the sides look to overcome the absence of their star players.
