Kolkata Knight Riders are set to face Rajasthan Royals at their homeground, Eden Gardens on Thursday. Both groups will need to win the sport in an effort to inch nearer in the direction of the Playoffs qualification. Ahead of the match, former India star bowler Harbhajan Singh appreciated KKR left-hander Rinku Singh and stated he would possibly get the India cap quickly for his exploits within the present version of the Indian Premier League.
In the 11 matches performed so far this season, Rinku has smashed 337 runs and has a median of 56.17. He has the best rating of 58 and has smashed two half-centuries. 62.31% of his whole runs have come from 21 fours and 21 sixes that he has hammered so far.
“That India cap is not far away from Rinku’s head. He’s such an inspirational player. He’s run all the hard yards and worked very hard to get to where he is today. Full credit to him for having that belief in himself. His journey is a life lesson and all young kids should learn from him,” Harbhajan advised Star Sports.
Another former India participant Mohammed Kaif seconded Harbhajan’s view.
“Rinku Singh has that maturity. His footwork is very good and he looks to rotate the strike as well. Rinku knows how to convert his form into good knocks and also knows when to shift gears. He is capable of hitting big shots as well.”
Rinku carried out brilliantly when his group chased the targets, together with a match towards Gujarat Titans the place he hit Yash Dayal for 5 consecutive sixes within the final over and guided his group to victory.
India are scheduled to play 5 T20 matches within the West Indies and the USA in July and three video games towards Afghanistan and Ireland. Rinku, together with Tilak Verma and Jitesh Sharma are all within the line for nationwide choice.
