Kolkata Knight Riders‘ star batter Rinku Singh created history last night in the 13th match of the ongoing 2023 edition of the Indian Premier League against Gujarat Titans. Rinku’s batting heroics made it a memorable evening for all the KKR fans as he produced one of the greatest finishing knocks in the history of the Indian Premier League.
When Rinku came on strike, KKR needed 28 runs off 5 balls to win, which looked impossible. Rinku had already hit a six and a four to end the penultimate over of the innings and there was no stopping him. He unleashed a beast in him as he brought absolute carnage by smashing 5 back-to-back sixes to seal the game with a win.
Three full tosses, a short ball, and a back-of-the-hand slower bowl, Yash Dayal tried everything that he could, but there was nothing that could stop Rinku. As Rinku stole the victory right in front of the Gujarat Titans, KKR captain Nitish Rana ran onto the field, followed by his teammates.
Rinku Singh Salary For IPL 2023:
Interestingly, fans are curious to know about the salary of Rinku for the ongoing season of the IPL. While the franchise pay a huge amount to certain superstar cricketers, but Rinku, who played a match-winning knock for his side, earns a very less amount as compared to others.
KKR had secured Rinku’s services only for INR 55 lakh in the IPL 2022 mega auction and was retained for the 2023 edition as well. Hence, Rinku Singh’s salary in the ongoing 2023 season of the Indian Premier League is also INR 55 Lakh.
Rinku will be hoping to make the most of his heroics and be consistent in contributing to the team.
Rinku Singh’s journey till here wasn’t an easy one. From being asked to work as a sweeper to pulling off one of the greatest finishes in IPL history, Rinku has come a long way. Therefore, the fans on the internet are demanding a special gift from SRK for the young lad.
