Kamlesh Nagarkoti (born 28 December 1999) is an Indian cricketer.[2] He made his List A debut for Rajasthan in the 2016–17 Vijay Hazare Trophy on 26 February 2017.[3] Two days later, he took the first-ever hat-trick for Rajasthan in List A cricket, in the Vijay Hazare Trophy match against Gujarat.[4]

Nagarkoti's father was a subedar in the Indian Army. He utilized his retirement corpus to buy a one-bedroom apartment in Jaipur so his son could learn to play cricket. Nagarkoti's childhood coach was Surendra Singh Rathod.[5]

In December 2017, he was named in India's squad for the 2018 Under-19 Cricket World Cup.[6] In January 2018, he was bought by the Kolkata Knight Riders in the 2018 IPL auction for ₹3.2 crores.[7][8]. However, he did not play a match due to injury concerns. Despite that, he was retained for the next season. Just ahead of the 2019 Indian Premier League he was again ruled out of the tournament due to injury.[9]
