Young Indian batting sensation Rinku Singh has made a name for himself for finishing matches for his team ever since his historic five sixes against Yash Dayal in IPL 2023. The 26-year-old once again put his finishing prowess on display as he scored a brilliant 22* off 14 in the first T20I against Australia on Thursday, November 23 in Visakhapatnam.
“It was a perfect situation for me, I had played in these kinds of moments a lot of times now. It felt quite good to be playing with Surya bhaiyya. I think we needed about 40 runs in the last four overs. I was just trying stay calm and take it to the last over,” said Rinku in a video shared by BCCI.
Further speaking ahead, he disclosed the precious advice given to him by MS Dhoni who had told him to hit the ball straight in the final overs.
“I had spoken to Mahi bhai once. I was asking him what he does in the last over of a match. He was saying that you have to stay as calm as possible, and try to hit straight. That is what I try to follow, to remain quiet and not react to anything. That has helped me a lot,” he added.
