Williamson misses second England Test with COVID-19.
Kane Williamson, the captain of New Zealand, couldn’t play in the second test against England in Nottingham on Friday because he tested positive for COVID-19 the day before the game. Williamson got a Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) because he had been feeling a few mild symptoms all day. Based on the results of the RAT, Williamson will be alone for the next five days, per coach Gary Stead’s plan. The tests done on the rest of the New Zealand team turned out to be negative. After losing the first game of the three-game Test series by five wickets, New Zealand is doing everything it can to save the series, and the loss of their batting star Williamson is a huge blow.
Hamish Rutherford has taken Williamson’s spot on the team, and Stead has said that opener Tom Latham will be the new captain. Stead said, “It’s such a shame that Kane has to quit right before such an important game.” “It’s such a shame that Kane has to drop out,” “During this hard time, we all feel sorry for him and know how depressed he will be,” Rutherford is already in England, and he is playing Twenty20 cricket with the Leicestershire Foxes. It has been seven years since his last test cricket match.
