Mumbai: Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) skipper Kane Williamson will leave the Indian Premier League (IPL) bubble to travel back to New Zealand for the birth of his second child, the franchise said on Wednesday.

"Our skipper Kane Williamson is flying back to New Zealand, to usher in the latest addition to his family. Here's everyone at the Riser camp wishing Williamson and his wife a safe delivery and a lot of happiness!," it said in a statement.

As a result, the Kiwi batter will miss the last league stage fixture against Punjab Kings on May 22.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar or Nicholas Pooran likely to captain the side in the absence of Williamson.

In the current IPL season, Williamson has struggled for form as his 93.50 is the worst among batters with a minimum of 100 runs.
