Kane Williamson led New Zealand are facing off minnows Namibia in their fourth game of the Super 12 round in Sharjah today. The Kiwis dealt an injury scare in the 12th over of Namibia’s innings when right-arm leg break Ish Sodhi got struck on the head off David Wiese’s shot. Wiese charged down the ground to smash the ball hard & it came so quickly that Sodhi hardly had any time to react & got struck on the head.
The incident took place in the 12th over Namibia’s innings. New Zealand spinner Ish Sodhi bowled a good length delivery and Namibia’s David Wiese charged down the track to smash the ball hard. And, it came so quickly off Wiese’s bat that Ish Sodhi hardly had any time to react.
Sodhi tried getting out of the way, but unfortunately got struck on the head. While all the Kiwi players walked up to Sodhi to have a check on him including David Wiese who showed a great sportsmanship and didn’t take a run. Soon, the physio ran out to the middle.
In the end, Sodhi had a smile on his face but for a moment everyone on the field was a bit concerned. Check out –
