3 players who can replace Kane Williamson at Gujarat Titans if he gets ruled out of IPL 2023
Gujarat Titans won the IPL opener against Chennai Super Kings. However, it was not all great for them as Kane Williamson suffered a knee injury. It looks serious and with Kane having had knee issues in the past, he could get ruled out of IPL 2023. In this context, GT will have to scout for suitable options in the market. There are plenty of choices available. On that note, in this article, we take a look at three players who can replace Kane Williamson at Gujarat Titans if he gets ruled out of IPL 2023.
1) Travis Head
Travis Head is in the form of his life. Especially in ODIs, opening the batting, he has been in cracking touch. In T20s, too, the southpaw could succeed. Considering these factors, GT could try and give Head an opportunity. In the player, the team would also get a right-arm off-spin option. Thus, they need not be dependent on Jayant Yadav for this matchup.
2) Tom Kohler-Cadmore
Tom Kohler-Cadmore is one of the players who can replace Kane Williamson at Gujarat Titans if he gets ruled out of IPL 2023. The English cricketer is doing well in various T20 leagues. He prospered at the recent PSL and made a name for himself. He is an attacking batter and could actually add value at No.3, a similar role he played in the PSL. Therefore, he is a part of this list.
3) Steve Smith
Steve Smith may have committed to a commentatory gig but he would still be available if any team comes up. In the BBL, Smith surprised all with his ability to score runs at a quick rate in T20s. Moreover, he would be a like-to-like replacement for Kane Williamson at No.3. Therefore, the former IPL skipper is suitable for a role at Gujarat Titans.
