KKR speedster Harshit Rana has only ‘one thing’ in mind: India Cricket Team call-up

Harshit Rana is a rising star in Indian cricket. His dedication, impressive performances, and unwavering desire to play for India make him a player to watch in the years to come.

Young Kolkata Knight Riders fast bowler Harshit Rana produced a match-winning performance against Lucknow Super Giants, taking three wickets and helping his team climb to the top of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2024) table. However, Rana’s ambitions extend far beyond the IPL trophy.

Dominant Performance for KKR and Harshit

Harshit Rana played a pivotal role in KKR’s comprehensive 98-run victory. He broke the crucial second-wicket partnership between KL Rahul and Marcus Stoinis, and went on to claim two more scalps, finishing with figures of 3/24 in his 3.1 overs.

This performance follows a string of strong outings, bringing his IPL 2024 wicket tally to 14 in just nine matches.

Harshit Rana: Dream of Playing for India Cricket Team

While excelling for KKR, Harshit Rana’s ultimate goal is clear: representing India on the international stage. “As a cricketer I am looking forward to only one thing and that is playing for India,” he stated.

But for any franchise that I play either KKR or someone else or even for my state, my focus is only on the day that I am playing the cricket/match,” he stated.

However, he emphasizes his commitment to delivering his best performance for whichever team he represents, maintaining focus on the task at hand.

Harshit Rana learning from Gautam Gambhir

Harshit Rana acknowledges the valuable guidance he has received from KKR mentor Gautam Gambhir, a two-time IPL-winning captain. “The whole season, we have paid much attention to how Gautam Gambhir tells us to play cricket and apply those strategies. Because he knows very well how to turn game in our favour. As a bowler Gambhir advised us to hit good lengths according to the surface, Rana said.

He credits Gambhir’s experience and tactical insights for KKR’s success this season.

Unwavering faith in Mitchell Starc

There have been some questions surrounding Mitchell Starc’s recent form, but Harshit Rana remains a firm believer in the Australian quick. “We don’t care if he is going expensive or wicketless,” Rana declared.

He highlights Starc’s ability to rise to the occasion when it matters most, referencing his match-winning performance against Mumbai Indians.

We don’t care if he is going expensive or wicketless as we know, like last IPL match (vs Mumbai Indians), he will win us the match when asked or required,” Rana said.

Harshit Rana is a rising star in Indian cricket. His dedication, impressive performances, and unwavering desire to play for India make him a player to watch in the years to come.
