"Gujarat Titans Confirm Williamson Out of IPL 2023 Due to Injury"

Gujarat Titans batter Kane Williamson has been ruled out of the remainder of the IPL 2023 season

after sustaining an injury during the season opener against Chennai Super Kings.

Williamson intercepted a ball headed for a possible six off Ruturaj Gaikwad's bat, managing to palm the ball into the field of play

before falling awkwardly on the ground and clutching his right knee in pain.

He was taken off after receiving on-field treatment and did not come back to bat.

The extent of his injury is not yet known, but it did not seem minor. B Sai Sudharsan came in as a substitute fielder and later took Williamson's place in the Titans'

playing XI under the Impact Player rule. GT had roped Williamson in at his base price of Rs 2 crore at the IPL mini auction.

The team wishes him a speedy recovery and early return.
