Representing KKR in the IPL, Raghuvanshi has made a promising start to his career, displaying his potential with the bat in eight matches, where he has scored 118 runs at an impressive strike rate of 161.64. His talent was first recognized on the international stage during the 2022 ICC U-19 World Cup, where he emerged as India’s top run-scorer, contributing significantly to their championship victory.

 

In the recent IPL encounter between DC and KKR, DC’s batting struggled to make an impact, posting a modest total of 153/9 in their allotted 20 overs. Varun Chakravarthy’s exceptional bowling performance, clinching three wickets while conceding only 16 runs, restricted DC’s scoring opportunities.

As KKR prepares for their next IPL clash against Mumbai Indians at the Wankhede Stadium, the team will aim to maintain their winning momentum, buoyed by their recent success against DC.
