Indian batsman Rinku Singh has been one of the best picks as a finisher for Team India in the T20I format. The young left-handed batsman has inspired with his performance in a short period and also played a brilliant role in the IND vs AFG 3rd T20I and added 190 runs with captain Rohit Sharma. Rinku played an unbeaten innings of 69* runs and scored a total of 6 sixes in his innings.
Former Indian player Kris Srikkanth has praised Rinku Singh and wants him to play at number six in India’s T20Is. While speaking on his YouTube channel, Srikkanth stated that Rinku will play for India in the T20 World Cup 2024. Srikkanth also added that Rinku is playing the finisher’s role well and is demolishing the opposition bowlers.

Kris Srikkanth said, “Rinku Singh should definitely be in the XI. In the end, he is taking off and bowling the opposition bowlers. Only he is capable of doing it. Look at how he remains unbeaten in T20I matches. He is surely going to play in the World Cup. NO. Number 6 is Rinku Singh for sure.”
Kris Srikkanth also praised Rinku Singh’s innings during the third IND vs AFG T20I match and stated that the batsman is enjoying his time in the middle. Kris Srikkanth said: “Rinku Singh, what a player! He is having fun in the middle. He reached six effortlessly. “A tremendous blow.”
Rinku Singh performed brilliantly for the Kolkata Knight Riders and in domestic cricket. Rinku scored 474 runs in 14 matches and scored runs at an average of 59.25 in IPL 2023. Rinku also hit a total of four half-centuries in the last edition of the cash-rich league, his highest score being 63*.
It was Rinku Singh’s final heroic act against the Gujarat Titans as he smashed 5 sixes in the last over and helped his team win the match from a near-loss position. Kolkata Knight Riders needed 28 runs to win the last five balls and any miracle could have only helped them win the match. Rinku Singh smashed Yash Dayal for five sixes and played an unbeaten innings of 48 runs.
With the T20 World Cup approaching, Rinku Singh will be in the plans of the Indian cricket team selectors and probably deserves a place in the Indian team for the upcoming ICC tournament. Rinku has played a total of 15 T20I matches for the Indian cricket team and has scored 356 runs at a strike rate of 176.24.
India has not won an ICC tournament in the last 10 years and the selectors have been building the core team for the T20 World Cup for a long time. The Indian team has also not won a T20 World Cup since 2007 and will aim to bring the trophy home after 16 years.
With the return of Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli to the Indian T20I team, India’s chances of winning the T20 World Cup have increased. India are once again the favorites to lift an ICC title after 10 years.
