Rinku Singh, a player for the Kolkata Knight Riders, has been making headlines with his outstanding performance in the IPL 2023 season. In a game against the defending champions, Gujarat Titans, Rinku struck five consecutive sixes in the last 5 balls of the match during the chase, ensuring his team’s victory. The match will go down in league annals as one of the most epic run chases, with Rinku’s name immortalised in gold.
Given his humble beginnings, Rinku’s success is all the more remarkable. His family is struggling financially, and his father still transports petrol cylinders to make ends meet. Rinku used to deliver petrol cylinders door-to-door with his father and siblings to help the family make ends meet. Rinku pursued cricket despite his father’s initial reluctance and is now a successful professional cricketer, having overcome the difficult times.
When questioned about the match-winning innings, Rinku stated that it was the greatest of his life. He is currently focused on performing well for his IPL franchise and is not considering playing for Team India. However, he disclosed that his younger sibling is also considering a career in cricket.
