Kane Williamson, the captain of the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), is poised to depart the team’s camp to go return home to be with his wife during the birth of their child. The formal announcement was made by SRH on their official Twitter page. It’ll be Williamson’s 2nd child with his partner Sarah Raheem, well after the birth of their baby girl in December 2020. Here in this article, we have discussed that Sunrisers Hyderabad Kane Williamson is gonna miss the last match of IPL 2022.

A significant number of cricket players already have exited the IPL environment in order to enter other priorities in their personal affairs. On the other hand, as the competition to make the playoffs heats the air, teams will be doing all they can to fill the gaps in their lineups.

Williamson’s episode did not go very well, as he was unable to display his full strategy as he contented with only 216 runs in 13 matches at a woeful average of 19.64 and with only one-half century to his credit. The campaign ended in a victory for Williamson, in the last game. Even with a 93.51 percent success record, he helped the Orange Army in a moderate form.

“Our skipper Kane Williamson is flying back to New Zealand, to usher in the latest addition to his family. Here’s everyone at the #Riser camp wishing Kane Williamson and his wife a safe delivery and a lot of happiness!”, posted SRH Twitter Official.


SRH is currently fighting in 8th place with just 12 points after a maximum of 13 matches have been performed up to this moment in the IPL 2022.  In order for them to continue playing in the T20 league, it was imperative that they win their final league match, which was against MI, by a score difference of at least 3 runs.

Despite fighting their way back to excellent form in the midst of the campaign with 5 consecutive victories, they dropped to an all-time low with their dismal performance thereafter. SRH  will have to overcome their final league match by a massive margin in an attempt to optimize their net rating and raise the likelihood that they will be able to participate in the postseason. When choosing who will advance to the next round, the outcomes of their competitors’ matches will also be taken into account.

As Williamson is unable to lead the team in their final league match versus Punjab on May 22 at the Wankhede Stadium, other potential captains include Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who has previously led the team Sunrisers, and Nicholas Pooran, who has recently been named the new white-ball skipper for West Indies.
