Kolkata Knight Riders found a new star in the form of Angkrish Raghuvanshi who scored a quick-fire half-century on his debut to help the side put 272 runs on the board against Delhi Capitals in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 on Wednesday. The 18-year-old batter played a 54-run knock from 27 balls at a strike rate of 200. He smashed 5 fours and 3 sixes. In a video shared on the official social media handle of the IPL, Raghuvanshi spoke about his Team India ambitions and meeting Shah Rukh Khan, an actor he has grown up watching on TV.

“Obviously, don the Indian jersey. But to wear it like no one has ever done before. Everyone will look at me and say, I’m different,” Raghuvanshi said.

Talking about his magnificent performance against DC, the 18-year-old dedicated his 54-run knock to his coach, Abhishek Nayar and his teammates. He also revealed that Nayar made him learn the reverse sweep and other shots.

“I would like to dedicate this knock to my coach, Abhishek Nayar and my teammates and the support staff. I have learned a lot from staying with them. Abhishek sir has been working with me since my childhood. All this reverse sweep and all, he made me practice a lot. So, the main man is him only,” he added.

The young star also spoke about meeting SRK, saying the Bollywood actor probably didn’t know his name before but now he does. Here’s the video:

Summarizing the match, KKR’s target of 273 turned out to be too much for DC as they gave in to pressure and ended up suffering a 106-run defeat.

The pace duo of Mitchell Starc and Vaibhav Arora bagged two wickets each to reduce DC to 33/4 in the powerplay.

These early blows derailed DC’s approach to chasing down the massive total which got more challenging with each delivery.

Eventually, the required rate turned out to be too much as they ended up suffering a 106-run defeat.
