A former cricketer of India compared Rinku Singh to the great MS Dhoni and current player of India, Hardik Pandya. Rinku Singh is in the squad for the recent IND vs AUS T20Is series in India.


The first IND vs AUS T20 in Visakhapatnam was a nerve-tickling match. The standout performances of the evening included a 26-year-old Rinku Singh, best known for his finishing touches. He once again showed up to his reputation as a potential match-winner for team India. India successfully chased down a goal of 209 runs against Australia in their maiden T20I. Achieving 209/8 in 19.5 overs, India marked their victory. Thanks to Rinku’s unbroken innings of 22 off 14 deliveries.

Furthermore, Rinku Singh was praised by former cricketer of India, Abhishek Nayar, who worked with him on his death batting techniques. Nayar highlighted Rinku’s character and composure during the run chase in Jio Cinemas speech. Speaking on Jio Cinemas, Abhishek Nayar said, “It takes a lot of character. We speak about someone, who has done it in the IPL and domestic cricket. Just to see Rinku hold his nerve and to have the composure shows that he has grown leaps and bounds” he further added,

“It’s the third time he has done this for India, the third time India needed him to do something special and he turned up. He hasn’t played international cricket for 5-7 years, but has the maturity and skillet of someone who has played that long” Additionally, Abhishek Nayar made a comparison of Rinku Singh to the senior players of the Indian cricket team. He said,

“It tells you that he has mastered the art of finishing an innings. It’s not easy and it’s been a while that Hardik and MS Dhoni did that for us, but post that, there’s no one, who has played the finisher’s role so well. It’s not just the runs he gets, but the way he gets them. There is a certain calm and composure about the way he’s playing his cricket”
