Reason why Rachin Ravindra missed the second T20I

Rachin Ravindra, a young and talented cricketer, has been making waves in the cricketing world with his exceptional skills and promising performances. He played a quickfire knock of 68 (35) in the series opener at Wellington’s Sky Stadium. However, his absence from today’s match left many fans puzzled and eager for answers.

According to New Zealand Cricket (NZC), Rachin is currently experiencing pain in his left knee, which has sidelined him from today’s game.

“He will be treated and monitored over the coming days before a decision is made on his availability for the third T20I,” confirmed the Blackcaps.
