“Rinku Singh reminds me of someone” – Suryakumar Yadav reveals the name

Rinku Singh hogged the limelight for his remarkable batting skills in the Indian Premier League. He plays for the Kolkata Knight Riders and in the last season, the left-handed batsman made a significant impact with his batting, scoring a total of 474 runs in 14 matches at an impressive average of 47.40.

His highest score in the season was 67 against the Lucknow Supergiants, and he hit 4 half-centuries during the season, showcasing his consistency and ability to perform under pressure. However, one of his standout moments in the IPL was when he became the only batter to hit five sixes in the last over of an IPL chase, a feat not matched by any other player in any T20 chase.

Meanwhile, India’s Mr 360, Suryakumar Yadav reserved the highest respect for Rinku Singh recently. “He is really calm. In the previous game, he came out with India needing 42 runs off some 20 balls. He played without any pressure. In today’s game, he had two overs and we were expecting to score 220-225 runs but he took us to 235,” Suryakumar Yadav told Murali Karthik.

Sky further added, “The way Rinku Singh finishes games reminds me of someone.” Meanwhile, former India spinner Murali Karthik asked, “Who is that someone?” In response, he was referring to MS Dhoni indirectly. “Everyone knows about that person. He did the same job for India for so many years.”

MS Dhoni is widely regarded as one of the greatest finishers in the history of cricket, especially in the limited-overs formats. His ability to stay calm under pressure and guide India to numerous victories in seemingly impossible situations has cemented his legacy as a finisher par excellence.

His finishing prowess has been crucial for India in many high-stakes matches, including memorable performances in ICC tournaments and bilateral series. He will be next seen in action for IPL 2024. Dhoni has stepped down as captain and Ruturaj Gaikwad will lead the team from the front.
