Rinku Singh was practicing in the nets ahead of the IPL 2024. During the practice session, Rinku was engrossed in the batting and hit a towering six which eventually went on to hit the budding cricketer on the head, who was present on the outskirts of the boundary during Kolkata Knight Rider’s practice drill. Rinku was swift in his reciprocation as he met the kid after the session and enquired about the intensity of the hit. 

The southpaw was accompanied by the KKR batting coach, Abhishek Nayar and he presented the KKR cap to the boy. He even signed the cap for the boy and apologized for the incident. The Uttar Pradesh batter was the standout performer for the KKR in the last season of the IPL. As a result of his exploits, he got the chance to play a full season of the IPL for the first time and made full use of it by earning the tag of a finisher.

Here's the video of the incident:

His performance in IPL 2023 not only made him a household name but also paved the way for an India call-up. He has been sensational in the blues as well, as he has amassed 356 runs from 15 games. He has an impressive strike rate of 176 and averages 89, with two half-centuries to his name. He has proved his mettle in foreign conditions as well, and his unhinged approach in the South African pitches grabbed everyone's eyes.  

Rinku Singh eyes berth in T20 World Cup squad

Rinku is expected to be featured in India’s T20I squad for the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup, which is going to commence in June. Owing to India’s relentless pursuit of a finisher in T20Is, after the lackluster outing in the previous outing, Rinku might get a go-ahead for a ticket to Barbados. As the IPL 2024 is on the cards, the focus will shift to the marquee event post-May. If the 26-year-old continues his exploits in IPL 2024, he could be a sure-shot contender.
