New Zealand’s captain Kane Williamson was injured at the Wellington Basin Reserve during the second Test between New Zealand and Bangladesh, after which he was taken to the hospital on Monday.
A team spokesman described it as a “precautionary” measure while talking about the incident of him being taken to the hospital for scanning. He suffered a left shoulder injury while diving in the field during Sunday’s first innings against Bangladesh.
He still came out to bat, but had discomfort and required the medical staff’s attention twice while batting. He scored his 30th Test half-century, despite being injured, before being dismissed by spinner Taijul Islam for 74.
New Zealand was in no mood to settle for a draw, despite having the first two days washed out. They pushed hard to wrap up the three-match series with a spare game, having won the first Test already.
