Himanshu Rana Biography

Himanshu Jaikanwar Rana is an Indian cricketer who was born on 1st October 1998 in Sonipat, Haryana.

The 18-year old from Haryana is a right-handed batsman who was part of the Indian squad that won the ICC U19 Cricket World Cup in 2018.

Rana also represents the Haryana cricket team in domestic cricket.

Background

Haryana is not the breeding ground of cricket, nor is it a Ranji Trophy heavyweight, but being a talented player in a relatively smaller team, Rana had significant advantages and got a national call-up.

Rana started his career by playing cricket for Haryana in domestic circuit and with his incredible performance, he got a chance to represent under-19 Indian national cricket team.

Debut

At the age of 16, Rana made his first-class debut in January 2015 against Delhi and top-scored for Haryana with 80 runs in that match.

On 25 February 2017, he made his List A debut for Haryana in the 2016–17 Vijay Hazare Trophy.

Rise to Glory

Having played over 30 matches for Haryana in the domestic circuit, Rana rose to prominence after he managed to amass 697 runs in 20 innings at an average of 37 with the help of 2 centuries and three fifties in the Ranji Trophy.

He scored a career-best 157 in the first match of the 2015–16 Ranji Trophy against Maharashtra in October 2015 which helped his team to have a strong position in the match.

Low Points

In November 2015, Rana was among the 20-probables picked for the India Under-19 side to play a tri series but he never made it to the team as he was diagnosed with dengue during the camp in Kolkata and had to be sent home.

Captaincy

In November 2017, Rana was appointed as the captain of the U-19 squad for the Asia Cup in Prithvi Shaw’s absence for a part of the series.

He did not have a good outing as a captain as the under-strength Indian team were beaten by Nepal and Bangladesh in the Asia Cup, under his captaincy.
