Speaking to The New Indian Express, Rinku’s childhood coach Masooduz-Zafar Amini revealed:
“He always wanted to build a hostel for young players, who do not have financial resources to pursue their dreams. As he is financially sound now, he has decided to make it a reality.”
He added: “Almost 90 per cent of the work is done. It will get ready by next month. Rinku will inaugurate it once he is back from the IPL. Hopefully, this facility will make life easier for these youngsters.”
