New Delhi :

The blackcaps suffered a big blow ahead of the forthcoming ICC World Cup, 2019 which is scheduled to start on May 30 as their skipper Kane Williamson suffered a shoulder injury in the ongoing second Test against Bangladesh. Post this, he was immediately taken to the hospital to see if the injury suffered in severe or not. 

Williamson injured his left shoulder while fielding in the game and was twice attended by the medical staff as he came on to bat. Despite the injury, Williamson showed immense composure throughout his innings and went onto score a gritty 74 off 105 deliveries with the help of eleven fours and a solitary six.

After playing a fiery knock, he was perished by Taijul Islam. A team staff described the step to take Williamson for scans as a 'precautionary,' measure. If serious, the injury can prove to be a huge blow for New Zealand with the impending World Cup.

The Kiwi skipper has been one of the most consistent run-getters for the BlackCaps across formats and the team cannot afford to lose him for the showpiece event.

Meanwhile, New Zealand continued their batting form against the Bangla Tigers and posted a mammoth total of 432/6 on the board in the first innings. Williamson effort combined with Ross Taylor's excellence helped the duo to put up a partnership of 172 runs. 

Bangladesh, on the other hand, isn't having the best time on Kiwi soil, and they suffered a follow on, and are already three down for mere 80 runs. It wouldn't be wrong to say that they might lose by an innings. Earlier, Niel Wagner bowled a destructive spell to pick up a four-wicket haul as New Zealand bundled out Bangladesh for 211 runs. Tim Southee also impressed with the ball as he picked up a three-wicket haul.
