The long-standing injury of Kane Williamson might recover, suggests head coach

Gary Stead feels confident about the recovery of Kane Williamson’s elbow injury.


Kane Williamson has missed a lot of cricket in one and a half years because of his long-standing injury which according to talks and rumours is supposedly a permanent injury for skipper Kane.

Head Coach Gary Stead has kept his opinion that Kane Williamson’s injury shall be recovered soon as these types of injuries ‘linger’ for a while but recover after some time.

Gary told the New Zealand Media that Kane has been suffering to play a proper game for 14 months now and the injury can be recovered in 18 months, so the team waits for another 4-5 months for the skipper to come back in full strength. Kane has been batting 20-25 minutes per week as suggested by coach Gary Stead.

“But the thought of him batting for four to five hours in a Test match probably means a good chance he goes backwards again,” commented coach Gary in New Zealand Media’s statement.

Kane will be believing in a long and consistent recovery and will not be opting for surgery which shall waste a lot of time and he might miss a lot of cricket due to his injury. The 31-year- old skipper has been ruled out for the South Africa series which is going to start later this month and has also missed the previous series against Bangladesh. Kane will probably be playing limited format cricket soon as the IPL is approaching with Kane expected to be one of the crucial players for team Sunrisers Hyderabad.
