Nitish Rana IPL Carrer 

A successful 2017 IPL season restored a career on the verge of extinction. That undoubtedly helped Delhi batsman Nitish Rana establish himself as one of India’s finest prospects. A disappointing performance in the 2016-17 Ranji season, in which he scored 404 runs in 8 games at an average of little more than 33, did not assist his cause.

After three failures in the Vijay Hazare tournament, he was discarded, but then the runs in IPL 10.

The IPL couldn’t have come at a better moment for the young batter, who revived his batting form with a streak of match-winning scores at the start of the season, giving the Mumbai Indians a leg up on their ultimately successful campaign.

The batter then slowed down and was even dropped from the squad, but the two-time IPL medalist certainly put his career back on track.

The following domestic season was considerably better for the southpaw. In the 2017-18 Ranji season, he scored 613 runs in 8 games at an average of 55.72 And was snatched up by Kolkata Knight Riders ahead of the IPL XI super auction.
