During IPL 2023, Nitish Rana, captaining KKR in place of the injured Shreyas Iyer, faced a tough season with eight losses out of 14 matches, finishing 7th. Amid his own challenges at MI, Rohit Sharma offered Rana a crucial piece of advice that shifted his mindset, easing some of the burden Rana carried during the difficult campaign.

Nitish Rana said, “Last year, when I was captaining, I went up to Rohit bhaiya. We won two matches then lost two matches. He said ‘Nitish, what do you think? What is captaincy?’ I was about to say something. Actually. I wanted to speak my heart out, but Rohit bhaiya didn’t let me. He said captaincy is nothing. Just changing bowlers, moving fielders from one position to another… it’s not captaincy.”

He added, “He said all that to calm me down and ease me up. He made me understand ‘As long as the result is in your favour, you’re sorted. The day things don’t go well, no matter how good you captain, no one will talk about you. So, you concentrate on your process and back yourself. The more you try to complicate, it’ll be that tough and the more you keep it simple, the easier it’ll be.”

Despite KKR’s struggles, Nitish Rana shone with 413 runs at an average of 31.77, including three fifties, marking his best IPL tally. Known for consistently scoring over 300 runs each season since 2017, Rana had limited opportunities, playing only two matches and scoring 42 runs. However, he was content as KKR claimed their third IPL title.
