“[Kane] is obviously a great leader amongst this group and he’s passionate about this group so I’m sure if there’s any chance of him playing, even if it is a small chance, he’ll certainly be playing,” Latham was quoted as saying by Cricbuzz.

“If we lost those guys it would be disappointing but we’ve got a squad of 15 who are passionate about this team and whatever side we do play has the backing of the whole group that it’s the right team for the job.”
