Uncertainty in playing in IPL for Shreyas Iyer. It is thought that he may not be able to play in the entire IPL or may not be able to play in some of the matches in the first half. In this situation, someone had to be declared captain. Nitish took on the leadership role, pressing everyone from Andre Russell, Shakib Al Hasan, Liton Das and even Rinku Singh. On Sunday, a post was made on Twitter for Kolkata Knight Riders, stating, “In the absence of Shreyas Iyer due to injury, Nitish Rana will lead Kolkata Knight Riders in this season. Hopefully, during this IPL season, Shreyas will recover soon and play for the team at some point. However, having the experience of leading a state cricket team and winning an outstanding cricket award since 2018, Nitish was urged to take the team forward in the future. Coach Chandrakant Pandit and the support staff were prepared to support Nitish outside the field. We have confidence that Nitish will do well with this support.
This is a news article in Bengali reporting on the uncertainty surrounding the participation of Indian cricketer Shreyas Iyer in the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL) due to injury. As a result, the Kolkata Knight Riders have chosen Nitish Rana as their captain for the season. The article highlights the support that Nitish has received from the coaching staff and the team as a whole, and expresses confidence that he will do well in his new role.
It is speculated that he may not be able to play the entire tournament or even miss a few initial matches due to an injury. In such a situation, someone needed to take on the leadership role, and Nitish Rana was appointed as the captain of the Kolkata Knight Riders in Iyer’s absence.
The article also mentions that despite the uncertainty surrounding Iyer’s participation in the IPL, there is hope that he will recover soon and be able to play at some point during the tournament. Furthermore, the experience of leading his state team in domestic cricket and winning awards for exceptional performances in previous IPL seasons make Nitish Rana a suitable candidate for the captaincy role.
The support staff, including coach Chandrakant Pandit, seems to be fully behind Nitish Rana’s appointment as captain, and they are confident that he will lead the team well. The article ends by expressing optimism that Nitish Rana, with the support of the team and coaching staff, will have a successful stint as the Kolkata Knight Riders captain.
