A Glimpse of Rinku Singh’s Achievements
Rinku Singh has amassed 474 runs in 14 fixtures, at an average of 59.25 & a strike rate of 149.53 in the recently ended IPL 2023. He had won fixtures single-handedly for KKR & won millions of hearts. Who could forget Rinku’s stunning 5 sixes haul which helped KKR to win a crucial fixture against Gujarat Titans. Rinku smashed Yash Dayal’s over for five consecutive sixes guiding KKR to a gleaming win over GT.
