However, the South Africa inning saw one of the Kiwi players getting injured and walking off the field. New Zealand pacer Matt Henry sustained a hamstring injury to add to the list of injuries in the Kiwi squad. While the New Zealand team tried hard to strap his hamstring, Henry walked off the field in the 27 th  over of Protean inning with just three balls in his sixth over.

The Blackcaps took to X to share an update on Matt Henry’s injury confirming that he felt some tightness in his right hamstring during his sixth over. Further updating on it, the Blackcaps confirmed that he will not take the field in the remainder of the match.

“Following further assessment, he will not return to the field at this stage,” the Blackcaps wrote on X. 

It is to be noted that a win for the Protean side in Pune will take them to the top of the standings, whereas a win for Tom Latham-led side will keep them in the semifinals race, but they will continue at the third place only.
