Young Indian batter Rinku Singh made a much-awaited appearance on the international stage during the second T20I of the series against Ireland on Sunday and it was an innings worth all the wait. Rinku had made his debut in the first T20I match, however, he didn’t get the chance to bat as rain played spoilsport on Friday.
The young batter from Uttar Pradesh’s Aligarh has been a consistent performer in domestic cricket, however, he came to the limelight for his incredible performances with the bat in IPL 2023. The star batter made the impossible possible for his team Kolkata Knight Riders during the IPL 2023. However, one of his most memorable knocks came in a game against Gujarat Titans, where he smashed five sixes in a row in the last five balls to seal an incredible win for KKR. And now he took off from where he left during the 2nd T20I match against Ireland.
Rinku Singh Gave A Sensational Finish To Innings
Rinku Singh walked out at bat at number 5 in the second T20I game. He started his innings slow but soon he switched gears and smashed the bowlers to all the corners of the ground. He displayed some insane power-hitting skills and accelerated from 15* (15) to 38 within the next six balls.
Rinku Singh provided the Indian cricket team with an explosive finish as the team ended their first innings on a strong 185/5 in Dublin. During his stellar knock of 38 runs off 21 balls, smashing 2 fours and 3 sixes.
Meanwhile, impressed with his incredible knock, fans on social media were quick to remember legendary keeper-batter MS Dhoni. As the young batter launched an attack on the Irish bowling attack, fans on social media flooded the internet with their amazing posts and Tweets, hailing the brilliance of the young batter.
Notably, the finisher’s role is something that Team India has struggled to fill since the retirement of MS Dhoni.
