Stead plays down Williamson’s injury concerns

Williamson
was
left
out
of
Sunrisers
Hyderabad’s
playing
XI
for
their
final
match
of
the
Indian
Premier
League
(IPL)
2021
campaign
against
Mumbai
Indians
due
to
a
hamstring
injury
which
he
sustained
during
the
course
of
the
tournament
in
the
UAE.

But
Stead
allayed
apprehensions
around
the
chances
of
the
injury
hurting
Williamson’s
participation
in
the
marquee
event.

“Kane’s
fine,”
Stead
was
quoted
as
saying
by

New
Zealand
Cricket
.

“He’s
just
had
a
very,
very
slight
hamstring
twinge,
but
he’s
getting
through
everything
at
the
moment,
he’s
feeling
good.

“They
(Sunrisers
Hyderabad)
were
out
of
the
competition
as
well,
so
I’m
not
sure
if
that
was
something
he
had
to
play
in.”

Williamson
joined
the
New
Zealand
camp
in
the
UAE
from
IPL
2021.

Other
members
joining
the
national
squad
straight
from
IPL
2021
included
James
Neesham
and
Adam
Milne
from
Mumbai
Indians
alongside
bowling
coach
Shane
Bond.

With
two
weeks
to
go
before
New
Zealand
play
their
first
match
of
the
tournament,
Stead
is
using
the
lead-up
to
the
match
to
get
his
squad
accustomed
to
the
heat
of
the
United
Arab
Emirates.

“Today
we’ve
probably
trained
in
the
hottest
part
of
the
day.
Two
o’clock
we
start
and
it’s
somewhere
between
35
and
38
degrees
probably.
You
can
feel
you
burn
pretty
quick.
We’ve
just
got
to
keep
the
fluids
up.

“A
little
bit
of
shock
therapy
and
getting
get
people
back
into
the
hot
weather
and
working
hard,”
Stead
said.
“…making
sure
we
manage
guys
in
the
next
wee-while
and
be
clear
around
our
training
and
what
we’re
trying
to
achieve.
We’re
certainly
not
doing
it
to
try
and
cook
people,”
he
added.

Wasn't given reason for being sacked as captain, claims David WarnerWasn’t

SRH
had
a
dismal
IPL

campaign
as
they
brought
up
the
rear
with
just
three
wins
from
14
outings
with
Williamson
replacing

skipper
David
Warner
midway
through
the
tournament,

decision

go
well
with
the

Australian
cricketer.
