We're hopeful that he will recover quickly: Gary Stead

Kiwi coach Gary Stead is hopeful of a quick recovery.

"There's obviously irritation and a wee bit of bleeding, it's not a major injury. We're hopeful that he will recover quickly, and the thing for us is to make sure he doesn't aggravate it any more. He will come to Christchurch and we will make an assessment there on whether he plays," Stead said.

The Kiwis won't be rushing Williamson at this moment.

He is their most valuable asset going into the ICC World Cup 2019.

The Kiwi coach confirmed that Williamson will only fly to India for the IPL, if he feels 100% fit.

The IPL 2019 starts from March 23 onwards with Royal Challengers Bangalore playing the opener against Chennai Super Kings.

IPL

Williamson was superb for SRH last season

Williamson was instrumental for SRH in IPL 2018.

He led the side well in the absence of David Warner and got them to the finale.

The right-handed batsman was also the top run-scorer (735 runs).

If he misses a few games, then it will be an issue for SRH, since Warner can play IPL only once his ban ends on March 29.

SRH open their campaign against KKR

SRH start their IPL 2019 campaign against Kolkata Knight Riders at the Eden Gardens on March 24. Their next match is against the Royals on March 29. Shakib Al Hasan could lead the side in their first match if Williamson sits out.
