IPL 2023: Kane Williamson of the Gujarat Titans may lose his ability to play due to a knee injury

Williamson had to be helped off the field in the thirteenth over after suffering a terrible fall while handling the limit in the CSK innings on Friday.

When he was injured in his right knee, New Zealand captain Kane Williamson was leading his team to victory over Chennai Super Lords in Ahmedabad. He may or may not participate in the upcoming season of the Indian Premier League.

The 32-year-old player suffered a terrible fall as the CSK innings was coming to a close. In the thirteenth over on Friday, he limped off the field. What was observed on Friday night suggested that his injury was not minor, despite the fact that the extent of it is still unknown.

Williamson, making his Gujarat Titans debut, caught a ball that could have been a six from CSK opener Ruturaj Gaikwad.

He was able to direct the ball into the playing field before it reached the boundary lines. However, as he shamelessly fell to the ground, he held onto his right knee in agony.

In accordance with the Impact Player rule, B Sai Sudharsan took Williamson’s place as a backup safety in the Titans’ initial setup. He was removed from the game and treated on the field, however he didn’t return to ba.

Hardik Pandya, captain of the Titans, stated in the press conference that he was unaware of the extent of the injury.

“I don’t know exactly what happened, but it’s definitely a knee injury,” I stated. The extent of the injury and the time it will take to heal are both unknown to me. Pandya asserts that there is currently no schedule.

“I had just messaged him. Williamson has been on the lookout for a way out; Following the screenings performed by professionals and the results, we may require specific information regarding his return.

In Auckland, New Zealand head coach Gary Stead said that Williamson’s injury was a big setback for the team.

“He obviously requests our most relentless steadiness; Right now, we don’t have the foggiest idea how serious the injury is.” We will learn more after that,” Stead communicated. Within the next 24-48 hours, he will be surveyed. Stead had spoken with Williamson after the incident and came to the conclusion that he was in “Okay” spirits.

Sadly, quoted Stead as saying, “unless we acquire additional data”: At this point, all we know is that it’s his right knee.” At this time, I am unable to provide you with much additional information.”

“It is not charming to see someone hurt, especially the skipper of your white ball group. He and we both suffer greatly from this tragic event.

Williamson joined Sunrisers Hyderabad in 2015 and was in charge of the team completely in 2018 and 2022, partially in 2019 and 2021, and completely in 2022.
