Kane Williamson, who suffered a shoulder injury during the ongoing second Test against Bangladesh, was taken to the hospital for scans on Monday (March 11).
The New Zealand captain picked up the injury on Day 3 while fielding, falling awkwardly while trying to stop a ball at gully. He came out to bat late on Day 3 and continued batting on Day 4, staying at the crease for nearly three hours for his 74 although he was hampered by his left shoulder and the physio had to attend to him a couple of times.
Injury update: Kane Williamson will not return to the field today as he rests his left shoulder ahead of further investigation (MRI scan) tomorrow morning. Tim Southee is the on-field captain.
