Williamson would be the only overseas player to lead an IPL side in the eleventh edition of the IPL.

The decision comes in the wake of the recent ball-tampering controversy that has barred David Warner from participating in the upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League.

Kane Stuart Williamson is a New Zealand international cricketer and the current captain of New Zealand.

In 15 of the matches played in the IPL, Williamson has scored 411 runs at an average of 31.62 with a strike rate of 129.25.
