Before the match, a special video of Kolkata Knight Riders’ top batsman Rinku Singh surfaced. In the video, Rinku Singh discusses how his name was made fun of.

Rinku Singh’s name was made fun of

The Indian Premier League has posted a video of Rinku Singh on its official Instagram account. In the video, Rinku says, “Many people have asked me whether his name is called Rinku at home or is it a similar name. I said that this is my real name, there is no other name at home. Many people believe that Rinku is a girls’ name. To be honest, at first I didn’t realize that this nickname had so much power, but as I continued playing cricket, I kept coming back to it. When the weight of my name increased, the five sixes further increased it.

In the video, Rinku Singh discusses five sixes. He hit this four against Gujarat Titans in IPL 2023. KKR needed 29 runs from the last five balls to win the match. From here Rinku Singh’s hitting became faster and he hit 5 consecutive sixes off the ball of Gujarat Titans fast bowler Yash Dayal. Rinku Singh’s brilliant batting led KKR to victory in this entertaining match. After this inning, Rinku Singh never looked back in his career and he went on achieving great achievements.

However, Rinku Singh’s bat has not performed well in IPL 2024. He has scored 168 runs in 12 matches so far. In such a situation, Rinku hopes that he will regain his form from the qualification match and lead the team to its third IPL title.
