The IPL couldn't have come at a better time for the young batsman as he rekindled his batting form with a string of match-winning scores at the start of the season, a prime reason for the Mumbai Indians to make a head-start to their eventual victorious campaign. The batsman later tapered off and even lost his spot in the team, but the two-time IPL medal winner surely got his career back on track.
The following season at the domestic level was much better for the southpaw. He churned out 613 runs in 8 games at an average of 55.72 in the 2017-18 Ranji season. And was snaffled up by Kolkata Knight Riders before the mega auction ahead of IPL XI.
IPL through the years
A left-handed batsman with a silken touch, Nitish Rana has been an vital cog in Kolkata Knight Riders' batting strategy, especially at the top of the order. His Indian Premier League (IPL) journey started with the Mumbai Indians (MI) in 2015. In a team that was packed with an overdose of talent, Rana had to wait for his chances, which came in spurts in 2016 and capitulated him into fame in 2017 - where he made 333 runs from 13 matches.
Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) came calling after he was released from the MI squad - ahead of the 2018 auctions and since then, he has become an integral part of the set-up, grabbing headlines with his match-winning knocks. If there's one negative aspect about Rana - it's his inability to convert his start into a big knock and his tendency to fall away as the season approaches its finale - it happened in MI in 2017 and repeated with KKR in 2018, thereby not letting the talented batsman to knock the doors on national selection.
