The Delhi batsman was having a disappointing run this season as he failed to score a single fifty in 10 matches for Kolkata Knight Riders. Despite repetitive failures, the Kolkata Knight Riders team management backed him and sent him to open against DC, where he in a 100 run partnership with Sunil Narine scored a vital knock of 81 runs off 53 balls to take Kolkata Knight Riders to a respectable total of 194.
After completion of his fifty, Nitish Rana dedicating his fifty was seen rolling out a jersey by the name of his father in law ‘Surinder Singh’ who passed away the previous night.
