Kane Williamson returns for Bangladesh T20Is

Williamson’s last T20 appearance came against England back in September last year

A little over a year later, Kane Williamson is set to make his appearance in New Zealand’s T20I setup as the captain for the three-match home series against Bangladesh. Williamson hasn’t made a T20I appearance in over a year, with his last clash being against England back in September 2022. 

Since then, the New Zealand skipper has suffered a long-term knee injury before rupturing it at the 2023 Indian Premier League (IPL) playing for the Gujarat Titans. Williamson has recovered since then and has made his presence felt, helping New Zealand reach another semi-final at the ODI World Cup before scoring a century in the two-match Test series against Bangladesh. 

Williamson joins Tim Southee, Daryl Mitchell, Mitchell Santner and Glenn Phillips, who will contest the three-match T20 series after being rested for the current ODI games with Bangladesh.

However, Lockie Ferguson (Achilles), Matt Henry (hamstring), Henry Shipley (back) and all-rounder Michael Bracewell (Achilles) all continue to stay out. Devon Conway has been rested for both the series’ with the left-hander playing non-stop cricket since the start of the year. 

New Zealand T20 squad: Kane Williamson (capt), Finn Allen, Mark Chapman, Kyle Jamieson, Adam Milne, Daryl Mitchell, James Neesham, Glenn Phillips, Mitchell Santner, Ben Sears, Tim Seifert, Ish Sodhi, Tim Southee
