Rinku Singh

Rinku Singh not getting a spot in the main Indian team for the T20 World Cup 2024 is not setting down with the fans. Many fans and industry veterans (ex-players, journalists and analysts) have called out in favor of Rinku. Now, one Pakistani cricket analyst has stirred the pot with his bizarre demand.

Send Rinku Singh to Pakistan!!!

Pakistani cricket analyst Farid Khan, posted a video on X (formerly Twitter) to support Rinku Singh’s cause. However, his ask of ‘If India does not want Rinku Singh, send him over to Pakistan. We will play him in our team, and we know how to respect real talents like him’ is not going well with the Indian fans.

Rinku Singh left no stones unturned to bag a spot in the T20 Squad

Rinku Singh, known for his hard-hitting style came in the lime light in 2023 for the KKR. He is the only batter to hit five sixes in the last over of an IPL chase. This feat, achieved during a game against Gujarat Titans in 2023, won KKR a game that seemed well beyond their reach. During that innings, Rinku became the first Indian to hit five consecutive sixes in one over in the IPL. Only Chris Gayle had done it before him. His IPL career stats are impressive, with 848 runs from 37 innings at a strike rate of 143.2.

He quickly became a dependable member of the team’s middle order and was looking like a strong contender for the T20 World Cup squad.

Rinku’s IPL career began with Punjab Kings (then Kings XI Punjab) in 2017. However, he didn’t get a chance to play a game with them. His IPL journey truly took off with Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), who gave him a debut in 2018.
