Will Kane Williamson be able to play in the World Cup 2023 or not?

New Zealand Cricket Team batsman Kane Williamson has not yet recovered from the injury he suffered while playing for Gujarat Titans in IPL 2023. The ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 will start from October 5, so now Kane Williamson has only two weeks left to prove his fitness. If he is unable to do this, perhaps he will not be included in the World Cup 2023 team.

When Williamson suffered a serious injury in April, it was believed that he would not be fully fit for the World Cup, but his recovery in the last few weeks has been excellent. In such a situation, he will be given full opportunity to prove that he is ready for the World Cup.

The team of 15 players will have to be submitted to the ICC by September 5, but it can be changed without any approval till September 28. Therefore, the next few weeks are going to be very important for Williamson. New Zealand head coach Gary Stead said,

“(We have) about two weeks left from now until we name that team. I will give him (Kane Williamson) every opportunity, and make full use of that time.” “He is in full rehab mode. He is now back batting in the nets, which is great. He is recovering quite well, but still, he still has a lot of work to do to ensure that he Get to the level of yourself that we need.”
According to the head coach of New Zealand, even if Kane Williamson is not fully fit, he will still be included in the World Cup squad. In that case, it is possible that he may not be able to play the first few matches of the World Cup. Apart from this, Kane can also be included in the squad as a reserve player.
