Cricket World Cup 2023 Participation by a New Zealand Star is "Unlikely."

Kane Williamson a senior atter who had to have knee surgery, will not be available for New Zealand at the ICC Cricket World Cup this year.

According to Tuesday’s scans, Williamson tore his anterior cruciate ligament while playing for the Gujarat Titans in the IPL.

Given that the typical recovery time for the injury is six months, Williamson is in a race against time to demonstrate his readiness for the competition.

Williamson thanked his IPL team and New Zealand Cricket for their support, but he vowed to do everything in his power to contribute to India come October.

Williamson said, “I want to thank both the Gujarat Titans and New Zealand Cricket for that. I’ve had wonderful support over the last few days.”

“Certainly, getting such an accident is disheartening, but right now my attention is on getting the surgery and beginning the recovery process.It will take some time, but I’ll work as hard as I can to return to the field as soon as I can.”

Williamson will undergo surgery over the next three weeks, according to New Zealand, but the 32-year-old would leave a gap in a squad that is eager to improve upon its heartbreaking 2019 Cricket World Cup performance.

Since making his ODI debut in 2010, the right-hander has amassed more than 6000 runs at an average of 47.83, and he is now leading the team’s 2019 run.

With 175 points after 24 games in the Cricket World Cup Super League, New Zealand now leads the league and has already guaranteed its berth in the main tournament.
