However, despite averaging over 50 in List A and first-class cricket and a remarkable performance in the IPL season, he was passed over for the West Indies tour. It was a huge heartbreak for the batsman as many expected him to at least make the team for the T20I series. However, it didn’t take him long to reach the India squad since he was called up for the 2023 Asian Games.

Meanwhile, he recently spoke about legendary Indian cricketers MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma in an interaction with RevSportz. The Uttar Pradesh batsman was asked if he feels any difference when he talks to the likes of Dhoni, Kohli and Rohit, and other cricketers.
Rinku Singh said that there is a big difference as the aforementioned Indian greats focus more on the mental aspect of the game and have completely different and clearer mindsets than others.
“The game has to do with the mind. Whenever I get a chance to talk to such top players, be it MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli or Rohit Sharma, I find a similar pattern: they focus on the mental aspect of the game. It’s all about the mindset.
“The clearer you are about your role, what you want to do, the easier it becomes to execute your plans, and that’s what I focus on. Also, the mindset of Mahi bhai, Virat bhai or Rohit bhai is far above and clearer than a normal cricketer thinks. That’s what makes the difference at the top level I think,” said Rinku Singh.

‘The talk with Mahi bhai (MS Dhoni) was very productive. He’s also hit in similar numbers to me, 5 or 6, and has done so for most of his career and knows the position inside and out. I simply asked him how to improve my game and his advice was very simple: “Bohot sahi batting kar raha hai, jo tu kar raha hai, wahi karta reh (You are batting very well. Continue what you have done so far). ”, he elaborated.
