New Zealand’s Devon Conway has been ruled out of Sunday’s T20 World Cup 2021 final against Australia, head coach Gary Stead confirmed on Thursday. Conway, who scored a fine 46 to push New Zealand towards the target, copped the injury after punching his bat after his dismissal. The coach confirmed that an X-ray on Thursday stated a ‘break to his right hand fifth Metacarpal’. It is a huge blow for the Blackcaps ahead of the summit clash as Conway used to play the role of an enabler to perfection.
