New Zealand’s team, which is busy in playing tri-series with Pakistan and Bangladesh, is in great trouble. The reason is that two of his big players get injured. Darryl Mitchell was already out of this tri-series. Now another name has been added to the injured players, Lockie Ferguson. The Kiwi team is hurt by the back to back injuries of these two big players. And, at the same time, under the shadow of the fear that such a situation may come that any of these T20 World Cup 2022 had to be out.
Lockie Ferguson is the newest name in the list of injured players of the Kiwi team. He has had to suffer an abdominal injury. For the time being, there are speculations that the news is only that they are out of the tri-series, which means that nothing is clear in this too. But, seeing the way they have had an old alliance with injury, New Zealand is keeping every step of the way.
Ferguson ruled out of T20 WC 2021 due to injury
Lockie Ferguson could not even play the last T20 World Cup for New Zealand due to a calf injury. That is, he was out of the T20 World Cup 2021. Now in 2022, the same thing does not happen, for this the New Zealand team management is ready. New Zealand head coach Gary Stead has indicated that Ferguson may be ruled out of the entire tri-series.

He said, “Locky currently has a mild ab injury. He is an important part of our team regarding the World Cup, so we are taking special care of him. He did not play in the T20 World Cup last year also due to injury. But we want him to play this year. He may take a few days to recover from the injury, so it is possible that he may be out of the tri-series.
Both players will be fit till the first match of T20 WC 2022
Darryl Mitchell had broken his finger before Lockie Ferguson, due to which he had to be out of the tri-series. However, according to the update on his injury ahead of the T20 World Cup, he is likely to be fit by the first match against Australia on 22 October. New Zealand will also be in the hope that these two players will be fit by the start of the T20 World Cup 2022 so that the troubles do not increase further.
