For IPL 2023, all the franchises have spent a lot of money to buy players. Sunrisers Hyderabad opened their hearts to buy players in the mini auction. SRH made Harry Brook a part of their squad by buying him for Rs 13.25 crore. But before the auction Sunrisers Hyderabad released Kane Williamson. SRH has made Mayank Agarwal a part of their squad by buying Mayank Agarwal for Rs 8.25 crore in the auction for IPL 2023. It is expected that SRH can hand over the command of the team to Mayank Agarwal.
We are saying this because Kane Williamson is currently captaining the Test series against Pakistan. Kane Williamson has done wonders in the first match of the two-Test series. Kane Williamson has played an unbeaten inning of 105 runs. During this, 11 fours have come out of his bat. Seeing this form of Kane Williamson before IPL 2023, it seems that Punjab Kings may find it difficult to get Williamson out.

With the arrival of Kane Williamson in the Gujarat Titans squad, there has been depth in the batting. Along with this, whenever Hardik Pandya gets caught in the captaincy, then the best captain like Kane Williamson will help.

IPL 2022 was not good for Kane Williamson. This is the reason why Sunrisers Hyderabad released him. In IPL 2022, Kane Williamson scored 216 runs in 13 innings of 13 matches. Kane Williamson’s captaincy also did not last last season. If this rhythm of Kane Williamson remains intact in IPL 2023 as well, then Gujarat Titans will become a strong contender to become champions once again.
