IPL 2023: KKR gets new captain for the 16th season of IPL, Nitish Rana will take charge in place of Iyer

<पी शैली ="टेक्स्ट-एलाइन: जस्टिफ़ाई करें;">Kolkata Knight Riders has announced the new captain for the 16th season of IPL. Star batsman Nitish Rana will be seen taking charge of KKR in the 16th season of IPL. Nitish Rana, who has been associated with the last several years, has been made the captain of the team in place of Shreyas Iyer. Due to injury, Iyer will not be able to be a part of the 16th season of IPL.

Nitish Rana has been associated with KKR since 2018. Although earlier the names of Shardul Thakur, Narine and Russell were also appearing as the new captain of KKR. But the franchise has given him the responsibility of captaincy, expressing confidence in the Indian batsman. This will be the first time when Rana will be seen leading a team in IPL.

Rana’s record in IPL as a batsman has been much better. Nitish Rana made his debut in 2016 for Mumbai Indians. In his second season, Rana attracted everyone’s attention by scoring more than 300 runs. However, before the mega auction of 2018, KKR had signed Nitish Rana. Since then, Rana has played five seasons for the franchise.

Why got command of the team

Talking about Rana’s record so far, he has scored 2181 runs in 91 matches at an average of 28. Rana has also scored 15 half-centuries in IPL. However, despite playing in the top order, Nitish is yet to score a century in the IPL. In the year 2021, Nitish Rana also got a chance to make his ODI and T20 debut for Team India on the tour of Sri Lanka.

Rana got the command of the team due to Shreyas Iyer’s injury. Last year, KKR had associated Iyer with the team as captain. But in the last one year, Iyer has to face the problem of back pain. Recently, Iyer’s back pain resurfaced in the Test series played against Australia and it may take more than 6 months for him to return to the field.
