The recently concluded Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 auction saw Gujarat Titans (GT) purchase New Zealand captain Kane Williamson for his basic price of INR 2 crore.

Ashish Nehra, the head coach of GT, and several cricket fans were shocked that the IPL team was able to secure such a significant choice for such a little cost. After the auction on Friday, Nehra spoke with Sportstar about Williamson’s place in the club and emphasised his batting position.

Ashish Nehra Wants Kane Williamson To Bat at No. 3

Nehra said that GT were trying to force Williamson to bat at No. 3 when asked whether the New Zealand batsman will be used as a regular member of the playing XI. 

“Yes, of course. Somebody like Kane Williamson, you are looking at batting at No. 3,” said Nehra.

Kane Williamson’s batting position and how it would effect others in the order were further discussed by Nehra. Given that Hardik Pandya batted in the middle order last season and performed the anchor position to perfection, he provided insight into what role the skipper will have in the batting.

“Hardik batted at No. 3 only once last year, otherwise he batted at No. 4. With Williamson at 3, Hardik will continue to bat at No. 4. We cannot think so far ahead since there’s still so much time for the IPL to begin. We will take a call closer to the tournament but I don’t think Hardik will bat down the order.

And I feel there is no such thing as a finisher. If you are set and batting well, you are expected to finish the game. Even your opener can be your finisher,” said Nehra.
