After that Nitish Rana was ready for next year’s IPL auction as the Mumbai Indians franchise had released him. As soon as the Mumbai Indians team released him, KKR saw it as an opportunity and immediately bought the left-handed batsman for a total sum of Rs 3.4 crores. Since then he has been a major part of the KKR team. With all the sporting events coming to a pause in the county allthe Indians were hoping to watch the IPL 2020.
