Former cricketer Harbhajan Singh believes that KKR’s batting sensation Rinku Singh is not far away from getting a call-up to the Indian team. He has played some outstanding innings in the ongoing IPL edition, which is beyond expectation.
Rinku has emerged as the saviour of KKR in some of the matches. His five sixes in a row against GT in Ahmedabad were the most memorable run chase in the history of the IPL.
The southpaw has shown lots of consistency in his batting and hit the winning runs for KKR’s latest victory over PBKS at the Eden Gardens off the last ball of Arshdeep Singh’s over. He has scored 337 runs so far in 11 matches at a healthy average of 56.17.
Harbhajan, who spent some time with him while he was attached to KKR, said that the youngster is about to get a chance in the national team. Rinku’s hard work and journey are a lesson for the young kids who should learn from him, he said.
Former cricketer Mohammad Kaif is also impressed with Rinku’s batting and said that his footwork is superb, he always looks to rotate the strike, and he has the ability to convert his form into big knocks. Kaif further added his ability to hit big sixes is an asset for the team.
