India cricketer Nitish Rana has announced that he will be featuring for Uttar Pradesh and leaving Delhi for the current 2023-24 domestic cricket season.
Rana, the left-handed batting all-rounder who captained Kolkata Knight Riders in IPL 2023, will be reuniting with his franchise team-mate, left-handed middle-order batter Rinku Singh in the Uttar Pradesh side and will now be eligible to participate in the inaugural season of the UPT20 League, where he will be leading Noida Super Kings.
“I would like to express my deepest gratitude for the opportunities, guidance, and support which DDCA has provided me over the years. As I move on to new horizons, I wanted to take a moment to reflect on the incredible journey I had while captaining Delhi Cricket and express my sincere appreciation.
“I would also like to extend my heartfelt appreciation to Mr. Rohan Jaitley for his support and cooperation during my time with DDCA. However, I think it’s time to turn the page and embark on a new chapter in my career.”
‘I have come to this decision with a lot of thought and I’m happy to announce that I’ll be joining UPCA from the upcoming domestic season. I’m excited to play for UPCA, and I look forward to working with everyone to reach new heights,” said Rana in a statement posted on social networking website “X”.
