New Zealand wicketkeeper Katey Martin, who left the field after being hit on the face by a Lea Tahuhu delivery during a ICC Women's World T20 match against England, received stitches to her eye.

During the third over of the England innings, a pacey short delivery from Lea hit Katey's face. She went down and was attended immediately by the medical team. Katey left and did not take the field for any further action.

Post match, when asked about her condition, the New Zealand manager informed that she received stitches to her eye but is fine and is likely to recover quickly. Whether or not she will take the field for New Zealand's second warm-up tie against England tomorrow at M.A. Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai, is subjected to the medical team's assessment.

The White Ferns lost their first warm-up match against England by five wickets, which was decided on the last ball. Sarah Taylor's match-winning knock of 51 steered the English side to victory.

New Zealand was slotted to play Pakistan on March 10, but due to their late arrival, the White Ferns played England here today. The two teams will face each other once again on Saturday at the same venue.
