Wishes are pouring in for Williamson and his partner after the star cricketer made the announcement with a heartwarming Instagram post.
Notably, Williamson had left the SunRIsers Hyderabad bio-bubble on May 18 and had flown back to New Zealand to be his partner and family for the birth of their second child. Williamson led SunRiers Hyderabad in IPL 2022.
The New Zealand Test skipper was replaced by Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who was the captain for their final IPL 2022 league game against Punjab Kings on Sunday 22 May.
The result didn’t go to SRH’s in the final league game of IPL 2022, as they failed to defend a total of 157 runs on a two-speed pitch at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium. Riding on Liam Livingstone’s blitz, PBKS chased the target with 4.5 overs.
SRH finished 8th in the 10 team ranking after getting 12 points in 14 matches.
Kane Williamson himself had a regular season with the bat, managing 216 runs in 13 games with a stroke rate of less than 100.
The superstar’s batter will head to England from home in June for New Zealand’s 3-match Test series. Williamson returns to lead the New Zealand squad after a long absence due to injury. Williamson will face his former captain Brendon McCullum, who has taken over as the head coach of the England Test side.
