Here’s Why Kane Williamson Is Leaving IPL 2022 And Flying Back Home

Sunrisers Hyderabad captain Kane Williamson will be returning to New Zealand for the impending birth of his second child

“Our skipper Kane Williamson is flying back to New Zealand, to usher in the latest addition to his family,” the franchise said on their Twitter post announcing this news.

In Williamson’s absence, SRH have two solid captaincy options: senior pacer Bhunveshwar Kumar and Nicholas Pooran

Against Mumbai Indians, Williamson finally pushed himself down the batting order and with the addition of the aggressive Priyam Garg at the top

SRH now have 12 points in 13 games – same as Punjab Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders
