CricketKane Williamson ruled out of entire IPL 2023: Report 

Srinagar: In a major setback for defending champions Gujarat Titans , New Zealand star cricketer Kane Williamson is likely to be ruled out of entire IPL 2023 due to knee injury.

Williamson injured his right knee while fielding during the season opener between Gujarat Titans and Chennai Super Kings on Friday. 

The extent of the injury is still unknown but reports claim that the 32-year-old will miss the entire season.

“It’s looking bad. Safe to say he is out of the remainder of the tournament,” reports quoted officials as saying.

Williamson took the nasty blow in 13th over of the CSK innings when Ruturaj Gaikwad went big towards the square-leg region. The Kiwi jumped and stretched across to his right to keep the ball in play and prevent the six but lost his balance and fell on his right knee. The GT support staff rushed to his aid and Williamson, looking in serious pain, was carried off the field.

The right-hander didn’t return to bat and was replaced by Impact Player Sai Sudarshan at No 3.
