Kane Williamson who has undergone injury issues related to his hamstring has revealed that the recovery is progressing “nicely”. The batter withdrew from multiple games this year, such as the first leg of the IPL, the Edgbaston test against England, and later also didn’t participate in The Hundred due to his nagging hamstring problem.
However, the trouble didn’t stop there and the New Zealand captain picked up an elbow injury during the second-last IPL game for the Sunrisers and as a result, he missed out on his IPL team’s last fixture. New Zealand will play two warm-up games against Australia and England, but their main round fixture will come against Pakistan on 26 October so Kane needs to recover before 26 of the month.
Basically just gripping and then extending. So, which you do a lot of obviously batting and it has been frustrating certainly when it was at its worst. But the harder you grip and further you extend, the more it seems to be quite disruptive. Like I said there's been a lot of improvement over the last three months, which is good. That has really been the focus and I'm at the stage where I'm largely about to get through with some comfort and it's nice to be able to focus a bit more on the cricketing side of things rather than having constant negotiations with physios.
