Himanshu Rana (19) is a high-class prospect, who starred for the India Under-19s and plays domestic cricket for Haryana. The young batsman played 16 Youth ODI and 2 Test matches for India between December 2015 and their victorious ICC Under-19 World Cup campaign in New Zealand (January 2018).

Alongside being part of India’s World Cup winning side, Rana’s highlight for the Under-19s was skippering the side against the touring English side in January-February 2017. He finished second (to Shubham Gill) on India’s run-charts (211 runs at 52.75), to include a brilliant 87-ball 101 from the top of the innings against an English attack featuring Matt Fisher (Yorkshire), Aaron Beard (Essex), Max Holden (Middlesex), Delray Rawlins (Sussex), Jack Blatherwick (Notts) and Henry Brookes (Warwickshire).

In January 2015, Rana had already made his successful Ranji Trophy debut for Haryana, scoring 80 against the star-studded Delhi side. Two games later, he notched up his maiden first-class hundred – an exceptional 149 against Rajasthan. He ended his maiden season scoring 278 runs at 46.33, then backed up with 294 runs at 42, including his second Ranji century – 157 against Maharasthra.

Like many “young guns”, he suffered a lean run in 2016/17 (125 runs at 20.83), which extended to last season, playing only 3 matches (95 runs at 15.83). However, he continued to produce handy scores in white ball cricket for Haryana and is very much in the mix for inclusion for the upcoming Ranji Trophy season.

The talented batsman, who also bowls handy medium-pace, is now eager to showcase his skills abroad, during his first UK stint in 2019. A high-class prospect, one who comes highly recommended as a star for the future.
