Tim Southee, a seasoned fast bowler who underwent surgery for a fractured right thumb, will join New Zealand’s World Cup squad later this week as his recovery continues.

On September 15, while fielding in the fourth One-Day International against England at Lord’s, Southee broke a bone in his right thumb. He went back home and sought the advice of doctors, who suggested surgery. The 34-year-old will now attempt to regain his full fitness in time for the World Cup opener between the New Zealand team and England on October 5 in Ahmedabad.

Following the current ODI series in Bangladesh, pace bowler Kyle Jamieson will also train with the World Cup team in India this week as a backup.

Jamieson won’t be a part of the official World Cup team and won’t be able to participate in any of the exhibition games against South Africa on Monday or Pakistan on Friday.
