Kane Williamson makes his comeback as New Zealand cruises through Bangladesh in the Cricket World Cup 2023.

Kane Williamson retired hurt after scoring a brilliant 78 in New Zealand’s eight-wicket victory over Bangladesh in Chennai.

After missing seven months due to a knee injury, the Black Caps skipper began hesitantly but quickly found his groove before being forced off by a knock to the thumb.

Daryl Mitchell hit an unbeaten 89 to help New Zealand reach 246 with 7.1 overs to spare.

A third win in three games puts the Kiwis back on top of the group.

They will, however, hope that Williamson’s injury, which occurred after he was hit by a throw while running through for a fast single, is not too serious.

Despite that concern, this was another superb all-round effort from Bangladesh, with the bowling attack early putting them under pressure.

Before the Black Caps batters put on another clinical display, Lockie Ferguson took 3-49 and Trent Boult got his 200th one-day international wicket.

Meanwhile, Bangladesh dropped to sixth place after their second loss in three games, and they are also concerned about the fitness of their captain, Shakib Al Hasan, who left the game limping.

The all-rounder appeared to suffer the leg injury while batting, when he and Mushfiqur Rahim put on a 96-run stand to lead a comeback from 56-4.

However, as they left, Bangladesh’s momentum was lost, and they were unable to claw their way to a total that would challenge New Zealand.

Rohit, Markram, and De Kock have outstanding World Cup statistics.

How did New Zealand defeat Bangladesh?

Williamson is concerned about an injury following his impressive recovery.
Many questioned if Williamson will play in this World Cup after sustaining an anterior cruciate ligament injury in the first game of the Indian Premier League in March.
