Ahead of IPL 2021, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) Nitish Rana has emerged as one of the top run-getters in the recently concluded Vijay Hazare Trophy.

He had a decent outing in the 2020 edition of IPL scoring 352 runs, including 3 fifties. He has scored over 300 runs for four consecutive seasons in IPL since 2017.
