“A timeline for his recovery will be established tomorrow when he undergoes further assessment,” New Zealand said.

Southee has been selected in New Zealand’s 15-man squad for the World Cup in India starting on October 5, when the Black Caps open the tournament against defending champion England in a repeat of the 2019 final.

Southee will be battling with fellow pacers Trent Boult, Matt Henry and Lockie Ferguson for places in the New Zealand team, should he make it to the World Cup.
