Williamson may be ruled out of IPL due to right knee injury

Ahmedabad, April 1 (Language)

New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson is doubtful to play any further in the current IPL season after being ruled out of Gujarat Titans’ first match against Chennai Super Kings due to a right knee injury. The 32-year-old Williamson was hurt while fielding. The seriousness of his injury is not yet known but it appears to be not minor. Williamson sustained the injury after falling near the boundary while saving a six off Ruturaj Gaikwad. He was carried off the field and did not return to the field.

An IPL source told PTI that it is difficult for Williamson to play further in the league though his injury is under assessment. The source said, “Williamson may require ACL surgery and may have to stay away from cricket indefinitely.” After winning the match, Gujarat captain Hardik Pandya had said, “He has got a knee injury but I don’t know the seriousness of the injury.” And don’t even know how long it will take to recover. I just sent them a message. His scan is being done and only after that we will know. In Auckland, New Zealand head coach Gary Stead said Williamson’s injury was a blow to the team.
