Wellington [New Zealand], Jan 31 : Minutes before the start of the fourth T20I against India, Kiwi skipper Kane Williamson on Friday was ruled out from the match due to left-shoulder injury.
The official handle of BlackCaps provided the update on Twitter and said: “Captain Kane Williamson has been ruled out of tonight’s 4th T20I with a left-shoulder injury (AC joint) sustained while diving in the field in game 3. He will hopefully be available for the final game of the series at Bay Oval. Tim Southee will captain the side in T20I 4. #NZvIND”.
