Dasun Shanaka to Replace Williamson from Gujarat Titans in IPL

Williamson will now return to New Zealand for more evaluation after sustaining a right leg injury while trying a catch during the first game against Chennai Super Kings on March 31. The middle-order batsman for Sri Lanka’s white-ball team, Shanaka, is renowned for his explosiveness as well as his right-arm seam bowling. In the most recent T20I series in India, he had a standout performance, collecting 124 runs in three innings at a strike rate of 187 and an average of 62.00. Shanaka will play in his first IPL season after being signed by GT for his base salary of INR 50 lakh.

During the match against Chennai Super Kings, Sai Sudarshan took Williamson’s place as the impact player due to an injury. Williamson wasn’t present, but Gujarat Titans still won by five wickets in their IPL season opener. During the game, Williamson made an attempt to stop the ball from crossing the boundary for a six. He fell awkwardly to the ground, and it seemed very clear that he had hurt himself during that. Williamson was purchased by GT for INR 2 crore at the IPL 2023 auction last year.

According to Live Cricket Score, Williamson’s departure will be a big blow to GT’s campaign, but Shanaka’s presence should provide the middle order with some much-needed firepower. Fans and cricket fanatics from all over the world will be eagerly awaiting Shanaka and the Gujarat Titans team’s performances as the IPL 2023 gets underway.
