It is known that Kolkata Knight Riders started this IPL season with a defeat. The team’s captain Shreyas Iyer was ruled out of the tournament due to a back injury. In his place, the KKR franchise appointed middle-order batsman Nitish Rana as the interim captain. In 2017, Nitish Rana came into limelight after scoring 333 runs in 13 matches and playing a key role in many victories for the team.

New captain.. New season.. KKR who are the two-time IPL winners are sure to start IPL 2023 with a win. But in the first match they lost to Punjab Kings by 7 runs. There was criticism that Nitish Rana failed as a captain and a batsman. But the team’s all-rounder Shardul Thakur made it clear that his support will be Rana. Moreover, the rest of the players in the team also have faith in him.

Nitish Rana was promoted as captain. He has a big responsibility. Still just learning about it. Perhaps he will add his own ideas in the future. There is always an opportunity to try new things here. I think Nitish can also move in that direction. Nitish has full support from the team as well as from our side,” Shardul Thakur told News 9 in an exclusive interview. Moreover, Thakur said that he also called him to know about the health condition of his teammate Shreyas Iyer.

Meanwhile, it is known that Kolkata Knight Riders finished as the runner-up in the 2021 season. It also matched last season’s seventh position. KKR all-rounder Shardul Thakur explained that we are all moving forward with the aim of being in the top 2 this year. “The team will come first to perform well on the field. As a team, we hope to finish in the top two, play Qualifier 1, win and then make it to the final,” he said.

But it is not right to mention about the upcoming matches now.. We have to correct all the shortcomings. But personally, I want to present the trophy for the team. Thakur revealed that everyone in the team, from the players to the management, has the same goal.
