In a post-match press conference following Gujarat’s win, captain Hardik Pandya updated about Kane Williamson’s injury saying, “I just messaged him. I don’t know about the update. He has gone for scans. He will know what it is when the scans and doctor’s checks are completed. Right now, there is no time frame – what has happened? It is the knee, but I don’t understand how serious and long it will take.”
