New Zealand skipper, Kane Williamson has recently enjoyed an intense net session as he is trying to make a comeback.
If he gains fitness before the 2023 ODI World Cup, then it will be nothing short of a miracle for his fans.
This year, Williamson got injured in the knee while fielding during the Indian Premier League for the Gujarat Titans.
Moreover, he had to leave India immediately and also underwent a surgical procedure for his injury.
Now, Williamson has shown some great determination and has started his batting practice so that he can participate in the marquee event.
Sharing a recent video on his Instagram handle, Williamson writes,
Nice to be back in the nets with the bat in hand for a few throws.
Furthermore, it was a nice visual for his fans to see him back to cricket practice after a long injury setback.
New Zealand is set to play two away series against UAE and England
Meanwhile, the Kiwis are preparing themselves for two away series, the first of which is against the UAE and the second is against England.
In the UAE, they will be playing a 3-match T20I series, and against England, it will be 4 T20Is and 4 ODIs.
Tim Southee will be leading New Zealand in the absence of Williamson for these two tours.
On the other hand, having suffered such a massive injury, Williamson continues to remain positive and says,
Very much just trying to keep it week-to-week at the moment.
Adding further, he says,
I haven’t had such a long-term injury before but talking to other people that have, the journey is a bit of a long one so if you look too far ahead, it probably can become a little bit daunting. Whereas one week at a time, ticking off those small markers, those little wins that are nice to experience.
Williamson is surely an inspiring figure in world cricket and he will make sure to participate in the ODI World Cup as well.
