New Zealand batter Lauren Down will miss out on the upcoming 2022 Women's World Cup at home due to a thumb fracture. Georgia Plimmer, who represents Wellington Blaze in domestic cricket, will replace Down in the World Cup squad. Down sustained an injury to her right thumb while taking a catch in the fifth ODI against India. She will return home and seek medical advice. New Zealand will play a couple of warm-up matches before their World Cup opener against West Indies in Mount Maunganui on March 4.
