Announcing the news, GS Stade coach Gary Stade said that Kane Williamson had injected to help “irritate” when hitting.
“It’s not easy for Kane to skip the test, but we think it’s right. He injected in the elbow to relieve the irritation he felt during the bats, և rest և recovery time will help to maximize. “The decision was made in light of the ICC World Cup final in Southampton. We are confident he will be ready for that match.”

Young also took part in 85 first-class matches, winning more than 5,000 runs, 42.64. Latham led the team in two Tests, winning one and losing the other.
