Bustling through the crease with a whippy action, Kamlesh Nagarkoti is among the quickest bowlers coming through the age-group ranks in India, clocking regularly in excess of 140kph. His athleticism and ability to bowl long spells makes him a captain's dream. His lightning sharp reflexes at backward point, coupled with his hitting ability lower down the batting order, makes him an all-round asset.
Nagarkoti made his List A debut for Rajasthan during the 2016-17 Vijay Hazare Trophy and impressed in his second game, rescuing his team from 54 for 6 with an unbeaten half-century. He followed that by claiming the first hat-trick by a Rajasthan bowler in List A cricket to bowl his side to victory.
In his first trip outside the subcontinent, Nagarkoti took 14 wickets in two youth Tests against England Under-19 at 15.14, including a match haul of 10 for 112 in the first Test in Chesterfield. More impressive performances earned him a spot in India's Under-19 squad for the 2018 World Cup. At the IPL auction in February 2018, he was bought for INR 3. (USD 500,000 approx.) crore by Kolkata Knight Riders.
