The explosive and thrilling format of cricket, Twenty20s, has given rise to many unknown cricketers becoming superstars in a short span of time. One such example is Rinku Singh, who has quickly risen to fame and recognition as a “finisher” in the game.
Rinku made headlines when he hit five sixes in an over against Gujarat Titans in the 2023 Indian Premier League season. Recently, he once again grabbed the limelight by hitting the winning runs in the final over and securing a two-wicket victory for India against Australia in the first T20I.
During the match, India was struggling at 154 for 4 in the 15th over when Rinku walked in. With just one run needed off the final delivery, he remained calm and hit a six. However, it was ruled a no-ball, and only the run off the no-ball was considered.
After securing the victory, Rinku celebrated with open arms, sending a clear message that he has once again risen to the occasion and delivered for his team.
Hailing from Aligarh, Uttar Pradesh, the 26-year-old Rinku has played 6 T20Is so far, scoring 97 runs at an impressive average of 97.00 and a striking strike rate of 194.
In an exclusive interview, Rinku expressed his love for challenges and his belief in himself. He credited his ability to handle crunch situations to his regular practice and training at the KKR academy under the guidance of Abhishek Nayar.
Looking ahead, Rinku has set his sights on the T20 World Cup, which will be hosted by the West Indies and the United States next year. With his hard-hitting batting skills and composure in pressure situations, he could pose a selection dilemma for the team’s selectors.
When asked about his readiness for the T20 World Cup, Rinku confidently replied with a resounding “yes.” He expressed his excitement about the opportunity to represent India in the World Cup and acknowledged the significance of being the only male cricketer from Aligarh to play in the IPL and for India.
Rinku also revealed that Suresh Raina has been his inspiration and idol. He considers Raina as more than a big brother and credits him for his rise in cricket. Raina’s advice to take a few balls to settle down before shifting to top gear has been invaluable to Rinku’s performance in the IPL and now for India.
In conclusion, Rinku Singh’s journey from an unknown cricketer to a rising star is an inspiration for many. With his impressive performances and determination, he has become a strong contender for a spot in the T20 World Cup squad. As he continues to work hard towards his goal, Rinku’s name will surely be one to watch out for in the future.
