The cricketers took to their Instagram handles to share the update on getting their first dose.

KKR Opener Nitish Rana’s caption asked a rhetorical question to his followers. It stated, “I got vaccinated. What about you?”. In his joyous way, he urges fans to get vaccinated.

In KKR’s season opener, Nitish Rana scored a blistering 80 off just 56 balls. He later went on to score 201 runs in seven games averaging 28.71.

Indian cricketers have come out and stepped up to get themselves vaccinated along with families and urging everyone, those eligible, to get vaccinated.
