Very excited to work alongside Australian pacer Starc while playing for KKR this IPL: Harshit Rana

| @indiablooms | 13 Mar 2024, 04:24 pm

Harshit Rana has developed himself into a terrific pacer since the last couple of years and has been making waves in the Indian cricketing circuit.

His attitude towards improving himself has helped him build towards becoming a proper all-rounder. Despite injuries, Harshit has always maintained a positive mindset and worked extremely hard on this game.

In the upcoming season of IPL, Harshit will play a key role for KKR as a pacer and will be looking to make the most out of the opportunities he receives.

"There’s a lot of excitement around Mitchell Starc joining the squad and I’ll get to learn a lot of things from a big player like him. Be it while playing the matches with him or training, I’ll look to pick up the learnings which will benefit my game,” Harshit told

“I had a tough time coping from the injury. Had to spend tw and a half months away from the sport and injuries like these take a mental toll on you. Despite that, I kept thinking positively and kept telling myself that the more I work on myself, the more I’ll benefit once I make my return at the IPL,” he said.

“After spending time in the Indian camp, I see a lot of positive changes within myself. You start to understand how one should work upon himself as a cricketer so that you make progress. I also learnt important lessons about training, diet, and much more,"Harshit said.

"In fact when I got injured in South Africa, Rahul Dravid sir came and spoke to me and asked me to work on some specific things and in the past two and half months, I’ve worked on those things. Most importantly, I’ve understood from the senior players the skill of continuously bettering yourself," he said.

“I’ve been working hard on my batting. After the runs I was able to score in the last domestic season, I looked to keep improving my batting. It will help me going forward and also I’ll be able to contribute more for the team I represent. I hope I’m able to replicate the work I’ve put in my batting and hope for the best from the upcoming season,” Harshit added.
