T20 World Cup 2021: New Zealand’s Devon Conway out of final, India tour with broken hand

The
30-year-old
sustained
the
injury
when
he
struck
his
bat
in
frustration
after
being
dismissed
in
Wednesday’s
thrilling
semi-final
win
over
England
in
Abu
Dhabi.

An
X-ray
on
Thursday
(November
11)
confirmed
a
break
to
the
fifth
metacarpal
in
his
right
hand.

Conway
had
been
one
of
the
Black
Caps’ stars
in
the
win
over
England,
striking
46
from
38
balls,
but
he
will
have
to
watch
Sunday’s
clash
with
Australia
from
the
stands.

He
will
also
miss
New
Zealand’s
three
T20Is
in
India
following
the
final
and
two
subsequent
Tests
against
the
same
nation.

Coach
Gary
Stead
said:
“He’s
absolutely
gutted
to
be
ruled
out
like
this
at
this
time.

“Devon
is
hugely
passionate
about
playing
for
the
Black
Caps
and
no
one
is
more
disappointed
at
the
moment
than
he
is,
so
we’re
really
trying
to
rally
around
him.

“It
looked
a
pretty
innocuous
reactionary
incident
on
the
field,
but
the
blow
obviously
caught
the
bat
between
the
glove
padding,
and
while
it’s
not
the
smartest
thing
he’s
done,
there’s
certainly
an
element
of
bad
luck
in
the
injury.”
