Nitish Rana once again played a handy beat for Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and scored 25 runs on 33 deliveries against SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) on Sunday in Dubai. The 27-year-old’s beat was important at a goal of 116 runs as KKR scored 119 for four in 19.4 overs in match 49 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 season. In the 18th over of KKR’s chase, Rana breaks the camera lens on the boundary with a powerful pull shot. In the fourth ball of the over, Jason Holder sent a short delivery, which hit Rana in the middle of the wicket.
The Afghan versatile Rashid Khan can be seen how he would intercept it, but he falls short when it hits the camera lens.
