OFFICIAL: Nitish Rana to captain KKR in IPL 2023

Kolkata Knight Riders have announced that Nitish Rana will be captaining the side in the absence of Shreyas Iyer, who is currently out with a back injury. The decision has been confirmed by the team through an official statement on their social media pages. 

Rana has now spent five years with the Knight Riders, and has led Delhi in 12 Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy T20s. As a result, his experience at the state level is being factored in by giving him the leadership role ahead of everyone else.

“While we are hopeful that Shreyas will recover and participate at some stage in the IPL 2023 edition, we feel fortunate that Nitish, with the captaincy experience of having led his state side in white-ball cricket and the IPL experience he has had with KKR since 2018, will do a great job,” KKR wrote in their statement.

“We are also confident that under head coach Chandrakant Pandit and the support staff, he will get all the support needed off the field, and the highly experienced leaders in the squad will provide all support that Nitish may need on the field. We wish him the best in his new role and Shreyas a full and speedy recovery.”

Nitish Rana has played 74 games for KKR, and has scored 1744 runs for them. And now, he is set to lead the team in the upcoming season of the IPL until Iyer returns.
