In the third T20I at the Seddon Park in Hamilton, Kane Williamson played a lone hand in New Zealand’s run-chase with a swashbuckling 95 from just 48 balls. Unfortunately for the Black Caps, the home side did not just end up on the losing side. Williamson’s left-shoulder injury forced him to sit on the sidelines for the remainder of that series. By the time ODIs commenced, inexperienced batsman Mark Chapman replaced Williamson and Tom Latham was appointed as captain.
