T20 World Cup winning captain Jos Buttler and several of his England team mates have been retained by their Indian Premier League (IPL) franchises but Australia counterpart Aaron Finch and New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson were released.
About his release from Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Sunrisers Hyderabad, Williamson said that he was aware of the move a few days back and said he would love to keep playing in the league as it is a ‘special tournament’.
“Had real fun time and memories with Sunrisers Hyderabad,” he added.
Williamson also took to social media to express his gratitude towards the Orange Army, his teammates, the franchise and the staff, saying the team and the city of Hyderabad will always be very special to him.
“To the franchise, my teammates, the staff and the always amazing #orangearmy – thank you for making it an enjoyable 8 years. This team and the city of Hyderabad will always be very special to me,” Williamson wrote on his official Instagram handle.
Williamson was released by Sunrisers Hyderabad ahead of the mini-auction scheduled on December 23.
He made his IPL debut for the Orange Army in 2015 and led the franchise as well across multiple seasons. The batter had a forgettable season in IPL 2022 as he scored only 216 runs in 13 innings.
