The KKR batter played a stellar knock in the KKR vs LSG game on May 20. His team needed 18 runs from the final 3 deliveries, and the in-form batter smashed a hat-trick of boundaries in the final over. However, Rinku’s batting heroics went in vain as Lucknow Super Giants side edged past KKR by 1 run to enter the IPL 2023 playoffs.

Earlier, Rinku Singh grabbed all sorts of limelight after the GT vs KKR game on April 9. He stunned Gujarat Titans’ pacer Yash Dayal smashing him for 5 consecutive sixes in the last over of the match to pull off an unbelievable win for his team.

The young KKR batter kept smashing crucial runs for his side throughout the IPL 2023 season. Rinku Singh performed the role of a finisher for the Kolkata Knight Riders quite perfectly after which cricket pundits are expecting him to get a Team India call soon.
