IPL 2024: Irfan and Kaif clashed over giving out to Kohli, the third veteran said – I say with a thud that Virat was not out.

Interestingly, there are such players in KKR itself, who were bought by the team at a very low price, but now they are proving to be matchwinners. The first name among these players is Harshit Rana. KKR had bought Harshit Rana at the base price of Rs 20 lakh. Harshit has shown by taking 9 wickets in 6 matches that buying him was a profitable deal for KKR.

The captain did not make Starc complete all the overs.
Against Royal Challengers Bangalore, KKR captain Shreyas Iyer showed more confidence in Harshit Rana than Mitchell Starc. Chasing the target of 223 runs, RCB had scored 174 runs for 6 wickets after 15 overs. At that time Harshit Rana and Mitchell Starc had 2-2 overs left. But Shreyas Iyer only got Harshit to bowl his remaining two overs. Starc was given the 20th over, in which he had to defend 21 runs. Starc had almost sunk this match. Karan Sharma hit 3 sixes in this over. It was fortunate that KKR won the match by one run.

287 runs given away in 25 overs
Mitchell Starc took one wicket after conceding 55 runs in 3 overs in the match. Harshit Rana took 2 wickets for 33 runs in a spell of 4 overs. Harshit's record not only in the match but in the entire tournament is better than Mitchell Starc. Harshit has bowled a total of 20 overs and taken 9 wickets in the tournament. During this period his economy rate was 9.25. During this period, Starc bowled 25 overs and took 6 wickets. His economy rate was 11.48 runs. Starc has spent 287 runs in 25 overs.

Harshit-Naren-Russell took 9-9 wickets
Mitchell Starc may be the most expensive player of IPL 2024, but his name is at number 38 in the Orange Cap list. Mitchell Starc is the bowler taking least 6 wickets in his team KKR. Harshit Rana, Andre Russell (9), Sunil Narine (9), Varun Chakraborty (8) and Vaibhav Arora (7) have taken more wickets than Mitchell Starc.

KKR at third place in the points table
It is a matter of relief for Mitchell Starc that Kolkata Knight Riders is winning most of its matches due to players like Sunil Narine, Andre Russell, Harshit Rana, Shreyas Iyer. He has won 5 out of his 7 matches and is at third place on the points table. Due to this excellent performance of KKR, Mitchell Starc's poor form has been hidden and he is getting a chance to make a comeback.
