Tom Latham injures his pinky finger during the third Test of New Zealand and Australia.
Tom Latham joins other Kiwis who are currently injured, as he breaks his pinky finger while in a Test match against Australia. Latham is the substitute captain in Sydney. He is currently ruled out for four weeks, after his injury from taking the final catch of the Australian innings.
Latham will skip the T20I series against India on January 24, 2020, in Auckland, New Zealand.
However, he can be expected as the opener for an upcoming two-Test series against India on February 2020. Hopefully, he can make a return for the three-match ODI series.
New Zealand made five changes to their list of XI players for the final Sydney Test due to injuries acquired in other matches.
Gary Stead, New Zealand’s head coach said, ‘Lockie Ferguson (right calf strain) has returned to running and performing bowling drills. He'll continue to progress over the next couple of weeks with the potential to return to domestic cricket early next month’.
He continued, 'Trent Boult has been resting his broken right-hand and will return to bowling later this week. He'll be touch-and-go to be available for the Indian T20 series later this month and we'll continue to monitor him closely over the next few weeks’.
He gave more updates saying, ‘Matt Henry has had his broken left-thumb splinted and will require around a month for it to fully heal. In this time he will still be able to practise bowling and will look at a return to play early next month. Kane, Henry and Mitch are regaining their health after being struck down with Influenza A and will continue be monitored as they slowly rebuild their strength and fitness’.
