KKR’s Nitish Rana played brilliantly to score 81 runs in the IPL 2020 match against the Delhi Capitals.
He has smashed 13 fours and a six in his 53-ball knock, but his unique celebration on reaching his half-century caught the fan’s attention.
After completing his half-century, he paid tribute to his late father-in-law Surinder Marwal, who lost his life to cancer on Friday.
The southpaw brought out a customized Kolkata Knight Riders jersey with the name Surinder printed at the back to show respect to his wife’s father.
The Kolkata Knight Riders are not having the best of times at the IPL this year. The 2-time champions have been very inconsistent.
In their last game against the Royal Challengers Bangalore, the Shahrukh Khan-owned franchise scored only 84/8 in 20 overs.
In response, skipper Eoin Morgan changed his opening combination and promoted Nitish Rana to open the innings with Shubman Gill.
The left-handed batsman did not disappoint his captain as he scored just three runs short of what the entire team had aggregated against RCB.
Sunil Narine backed Nitish Rana to perfection as they added 115 runs for the fourth wicket. Narine scored a 32-ball 64 as KKR finished with 194/6 after Shreyas Iyer invited them to bat first in Match 42 of IPL 2020.
