Williamson and Jamieson out from Bangladesh series

Agency :
Captain Kane Williamson and bowler Kyle Jamieson have been withdrawn from the New Zealand T20I squad for Bangladesh series. Rachin Ravindra and Jacob Duffy will replace them.

The decision to withdraw the pair follows further medical advice and consideration of the team’s upcoming schedule, with a focus on this summer’s Test series against South Africa and Australia.

Williamson will undergo a period of knee rehabilitation and strengthening following his recent return to play in India and Bangladesh.

The advice on Jamieson is that his hamstring injury was best served by a period of targeted rehabilitation leading into February’s Test Series against South Africa.

He will also miss January’s T20 Series against Pakistan.

Kiwi Coach Gary Stead said the withdrawals were grounded in fresh medical advice.
