After the Chetan Sharma-led selection committee picked the roster for the five-game T20I series, fans called for Rahul Tripathi to be included. Nitish Rana of the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) was another name missing from the list. Rana, who scored 361 runs in 14 matches during the current IPL season, responded with a cryptic post on social media.  “Things will change soon,” the left-handed batter posted, adding an India flag and a target emoji.

IND VS SA T20: Nitish Rana Represented India In Sri Lanka Recently

Rana recently represented India in Sri Lanka, where the Shikhar Dhawan-led side played three One-Day Internationals and as many Twenty-20 Internationals against the islanders. The Delhi player, on the other hand, had three single-digit scores in his three games. Rana, who made his ODI debut in the final game of the series, only managed to score seven runs.

The KKR player was dismissed for 9 and 6 in the second and third T20 Internationals, respectively. The 28-year-old wrote a message explaining why the tour didn’t go as planned and promising a strong comeback.

“There Are People Who Will Say Stuff And Judge”: Nitish Rana

“Our social media isn’t just to post out victories but also our failures. This tour didn’t go the way I planned or expected it to go but I have learned so much in my last 3 games. “

Nitish Rana posted

“There are people who will say stuff and judge me but I won’t let anything tear me down. I know how much I’ve worked for it and I’ll keep moving forward. I will keep growing stronger and will be back to win big for myself and my team”.

In terms of comebacks in the Indian T20 setup, Hardik Pandya has returned following a stellar performance in the Indian Premier League. While guiding Gujarat Titans, the flamboyant Baroda all-rounder has been consistent with the bat as well as delivering a few quick overs. Hardik Pandya, who has 413 runs in 13 games and bowled roughly 25 overs, will almost certainly be the sixth bowling option for the World T20 in Australia.
