New Zealand captain Kane Williamson dropped out of the top 100 due to an elbow injury. Williamson was originally scheduled to play for Birmingham Phoenix. He previously missed the start of the ODI series against Bangladesh and the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 for similar reasons. According to a report from ESPNcricinfo, Williamson is expected to play a coaching role for the Birmingham Phoenix team because he is still in the UK after the World Trade Center’s final victory over India. In the T20 Blast match against Lancashire, New Zealand batsman Finn Allen will replace Williamson.
Pakistani fast bowler Shaheen Shah Afridi also reportedly withdrew from the show due to a conflict with the Centurion in the West Indies Tour.
At the same time, South African fast bowler Lungi Ngidi will join the Welsh Fire team and will be able to participate in five games.
Last month, Australian starter David Warner and versatile player Marcus Stonis retired from the top 100. They are ready to play for the Southern Warriors.
