The cricketing fraternity has set its sights on an emerging star who has been creating ripples with his bat. Sanjay Manjrekar, the former Indian international, envisions Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) sensation Rinku Singh to not only continue his remarkable form but to also cement his place in the Indian white-ball team after the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 season concludes.

I know he is already in the Indian team, but there’s so much competition now. There’s a long queue of batters wanting to get in. But Rinku Singh will be one guy that I think his name will be written in bold font.

Rinku Singh, the talismanic batter for KKR, was the top run-scorer for his team in the previous IPL season. With an impressive tally of 474 runs in 14 matches, Singh’s prowess at the crease showcased his potential to be a future mainstay in the Indian lineup. His recent debut for India in the T20 international against Ireland in August 2023 is a testimony to his rising stock in Indian cricket, marking a promising start to what many hope will be a long and prosperous international career.

The IPL has often been a crucible for unearthing and honing the skills of cricket’s brightest talents, and Rinku Singh appears to be no exception. Manjrekar’s expectations highlight how performances in the IPL can catapult players onto the national stage.

In contrast to the bright prospects expected for Rinku Singh, Manjrekar has indicated potential challenges for Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in striking the right balance with their selection of foreign players for the IPL 2024 season. With the appointment of Australian pacer Pat Cummins as the new captain, replacing Aiden Markram, SRH aims to usher in a new era under his leadership. The team also welcomes Travis Head and Wanindu Hasaranga to their fold of overseas talents, adding depth and prowess to their squad.

Easily Sunrisers Hyderabad, because they just have too many foreign players. I don’t know what they were doing in the auction, because there are just high-quality foreign players. In fact, they should make a request, ‘Can we play seven?

As the nation eagerly anticipates the IPL 2024 opener on March 22nd with Chennai Super Kings facing off against Royal Challengers Bengaluru at the MA Chidambaram Stadium, the spotlight will undoubtedly be on Rinku Singh. His journey from KKR’s powerhouse to potentially donning the blues for Team India is a narrative that could inspire aspiring cricketers nationwide. Manjrekar’s bold prediction for Singh’s future may soon see the young star’s name written in bold font as a testament to his cricketing prowess and impact on the game.
