During the IPL 2023 season opener between Gujarat Titans and Chennai Super Kings, Kane Williamson sustained a knee injury while fielding. The incident happened in the 13th over of the match when he tried to catch Ruturaj Gaikwad’s hit on the deep mid-wicket boundary.
Although he managed to stop the ball inside the field, he landed awkwardly, causing his knee to jolt. Consequently, Williamson had a tough start to the season.
Actually, this incident is from the 12.3rd over. Joshua Little was bowling and Gaikwad was batting. This young batsman flicked the ball from the front foot and the ball was going over the mid-wicket boundary, but Kane Williamson, who was present there, jumped and threw the ball back inside the boundary. He made a great effort, but Chennai got four runs.
However, during this, he also suffered a bad injury. After jumping, he fell on his knees and as soon as he fell, he grabbed his right knee and his foot hit the ground with force after throwing the ball. After this, the medical team had to come to the field and then he had to leave the field. Its video is becoming quite viral.
It is noteworthy that while Chennai’s experienced batsmen have almost failed in this match, Ruturaj Gaikwad is moving towards a century. In the match, he has also completed his half-century in just 23 balls. In the 15th over, Chennai’s score has gone above 130 and all the credit goes to Ruturaj Gaikwad.
