Kane Williamson on release from SRH: Sunrisers Hyderabad’s performance in IPL 2022 was very poor. This team came at number eight in the table of 10 teams involved in the league. This result was a shocking experience for this franchise, so it decided to change the entire look of the team before the mini auction for the 2023 season. For this, the biggest blow fell on the captain of the team and his most expensive player of the 2022 campaign, Kane Williamson. The Hyderabad team handed over Williamson to the market. The IPV franchise released the New Zealand captain from the team.
Williamson’s long journey with Sunrisers ends
Williamson led the 2016 IPL champions to the final with a stellar performance in 2018. In this season, he scored 735 runs at a strike rate of 142.44 and an average of 52. Williamson, who has been a part of Sunrisers for the last 8 years, was made the regular captain of the team in 2021. After this there was a tremendous decline in his performance. He played a total of 76 matches for Hyderabad. During this, he scored 2101 runs at an average of 36.22 and his strike rate was 126.03. He captained the Hyderabad team in 46 matches.
Williamson wants to remain a part of IPL
Williamson has come a long way with this IPL franchise, but the way he was released from the team did not surprise him. In the press conference before the start of the T20 series against India, Williamson said that he wants to remain a part of the league in the 2023 season of IPL as well.
Kane Williamson said, “There is tremendous competition in this world. IPL is a fierce competition which is good to be a part of. You see that all the players play for different teams. There are many options, there is a lot of cricket, I like to play in all formats.
Williamson was already informed about his release
The former Sunrisers Hyderabad captain said that he was not surprised by the announcement as the team management had spoken to him before making the formal announcement. He said, “That’s how it goes. I enjoyed a lot in Sunrise and got a good memory.
