In 13 T20I games, Rinku Singh amassed 278 runs with a strike average of 180.51.
Rinku Singh’s outstanding batting in T20I cricket in the recent past has been praised by former Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh. The southpaw was called up to the national squad for the Ireland series after having a great time with the Kolkata Knight Riders in the 2023 Indian Premier League. Since then, he has contributed to the Indian team’s victories by playing an aggressive style of cricket. Additionally, he has demonstrated remarkable consistency, which may help him get a spot in the next T20 World Cup.
In reference to Rinku, Yuvraj said that the batter from Aligarh reminds him of himself and asserted that Rinku is now the best left-handed hitter in India. The 42-year-old continued by saying that Rinku is extremely intelligent under duress and understands when to attack.
He’s perhaps the Indian team’s top left-hander at the moment. He is quite intelligent under pressure and knows when to attack and rotate strikes, which makes him remind me of myself. He is capable of winning us games. In an interview with The Telegraph, Yuvraj said, “I don’t want to put pressure on him, but I really believe he has the skill to do what I used to – to be the finisher who delivers at No. 5 or 6.”
up Test cricket, Shubman needs to put up more effort: Yuvraj
Currently, Shubman Gill is having difficulty in both red-ball and white-ball cricket. With just 74 runs in four innings during the Test series against South Africa, he was mediocre. The 24-year-old needs to put in more effort in the game’s longest format, according to Yuvraj, who also reminded him that excelling in all formats is necessary to be the best.
Yuvraj states, “Shubman needs to work harder in Test cricket.” “If you want to be the best in the world, you have to conquer all formats,” the two-time World Cup winner remarked.
Notably, Gill had a solid start in the opening Twenty20 International match against Afghanistan in Mohali, but he was out after scoring 23 runs, therefore he was unable to convert it. Because of this, it appears that his place in the T20I team is also in jeopardy, as Yashasvi Jaiswal is expected to start in his stead in the second match in Indore.
