New Zealand batsman Devon Conway was on Thursday dominated out of the T20 World Cup remaining after breaking his proper hand when he punched his bat on his dismissal within the semi-final win over England. As effectively as sitting out Sunday’s title match against Australia in Dubai, Conway will even miss the forthcoming tour of India. Conway had made 46 when he was out stumped by Jos Buttler off Liam Livingstone earlier than his workforce secured a five-wicket win in Wednesday’s semi-final.

“He’s absolutely gutted to be ruled out like this at this time,” Coach Gary Stead mentioned.

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

“It appeared a reasonably innocuous reactionary incident on the sphere, however the blow clearly caught the bat between the glove padding and whereas it is not the neatest factor he is completed there is definitely a component of dangerous luck within the harm.


“Devon is a great team-man and a very popular member of the side so we’re all feeling for him. He’s determined to support the team in anyway he can for the remainder of the tour before he returns home to recover,” mentioned the New Zealand coach.

“Due to the timelines we won’t be bringing in a replacement player for this World Cup or next week’s T20 series against India, but are working through our options for the Test series later this month.”
