Gujarat Titans batter sustained an injury during the season opener against Chennai Super Kings
April 2, 2023 – Ahmedabad: Kane Williamson, the Gujarat Titans batter, has been ruled out of the Tata Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023. Williamson sustained an injury to his right knee while attempting a catch during Gujarat Titans’ opening encounter against Chennai Super Kings at the Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad.
“It is sad to lose Kane to injury so early in the tournament. We wish him a speedy recovery, with the hope of seeing him in action very soon,” said Vikram Solanki.
Williamson will now head home to New Zealand for further assessment. The Gujarat Titans will finalise a replacement for the right-handed batter and an announcement will be made in due course.
