Kane Williamson, the regular captain of New Zealand, has received a touching message from Babar Azam, the captain of the Pakistan cricket team, wishing him a swift recovery and return to the game.
Last week’s Indian Premier League (IPL) match saw Kane Williamson suffer a serious knee injury that will keep him out of action for the whole season.
While this was happening, Babar Azam posted a photo of himself hugging Kane Williamson with the caption, “Bounce back stronger. Kane Williamson, please get well soon.

It is important to note that the New Zealand batsman, who played for the Gujarat Titans, suffered an injury while attempting a challenging catch in the first IPL game.
The right-handed batter arrived in New Zealand a day later, where the NZC medical board determined that he had a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.
The New Zealand cricket board stated in a statement that Kane Williamson will have surgery over the next three weeks, after the knee’s swelling has subsided.
Williamson is currently unlikely to be healthy and available for selection in this year’s ICC ODI Cricket World Cup in India, according to the conventional rehabilitation schedules, it was verified.
